Markhat the finder knows going missing in Rannit is as easy as stepping outside. But when vanished seamstress Martha Hoobin's brothers hire Markhat to bring their sister home, he quickly finds himself face to fang with a murderous halfdead blood cult, a coven of treacherous Church leaders, and a vampire gangster with schemes all his own. Markhat's only chance of survival may lie with a dark magic that brings power, but at an awful price.
In a city where the dead walk and the living must stay a step ahead, can a lone Finder survive to earn his fee?
