Malfric sees through the eyes of the dead - literally reliving their last moments as if they were his own. This ability is highly sought, and highly priced, which is why the unscrupulous Captain Finch hires him to find the murderer of a nobleman and the whereabouts of a valuable artifact.
Quantex, the able-bodied first mate of Captain Finch, quickly becomes Malfric's foil as he demonstrates uncommon intelligence during the investigation. Together, the two uncover several clues that lead them to the killer, the artifact, and the frayed end of a mysterious plot that begins to unravel the moment Malfric takes it in hand and gives it a good yank.
This book was very entertaining and interesting. Great imagination! I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a good book to read.
