Sometimes catching a killer isn’t enough… Inspector Nicolas Lenoir is a changed man. Though he’s still arrogant and irritable, Lenoir is ready to reclaim his reputation as the Metropolitan Police’s premier detective. In Kennian, though, things are never quite so easy. A deadly disease is spreading like wildfire through the city, and the plague is no accident – it was intentionally unleashed. Kennian’s physicians are helpless. Only the mysterious Adali witchdoctors seem to have a cure – but dark magic comes at a price, and Lenoir knows only too well just how costly it can be. The only thing spreading faster than the plague is fear. With the body count rising and the city descending into chaos, Lenoir and his partner, Sergeant Bran Kody, are racing against time to stop an invisible enemy. Even if it means risking their own lives, Lenoir and Kody must find a way to stop the insidious epidemic and save the city…while there is still a city left to be saved.
