Ben’s back - and this time he means business. Family business...Benedict Macallan, protagonist of Dead of Light and wonder-worker malgr lui, has travelled the length and breadth of Europe and still discovered no family like his own. Maybe Macallan blood really is a biological sport, a freak of evolution.
What Ben does discover is that he can’t escape his birthright. He can run to the sun and hide among strangers, but he can’t hide his powers from himself, and when a friend asks for help he has to use them. With blood on his hands once more, it’s farewell la dolce vita; he gets on his bike and goes home.
Home is no sweeter than it was before, but it has changed. His gangster relatives have lost control somehow, of themselves and their city; more than one evil is at work here now, and even Ben’s unique talents may not be enough to save the one he loves.
If he can work out who that is...
