?Ritual murder,? Eve thought irritably. ?That?s all I bloody need. Angels in my private life, demons and black magic in my professional life. Why does everything have to be so damn complicated? It can?t just be a normal sort of murder; it has to have occult connections.?
The discovery in a London cemetery of the body of a young woman sparks off a nationwide murder enquiry and Detective Sergeant Eve Hallam of the London Metropolitan Police is assigned to the case.
A terrifying encounter with something that she cannot rationally explain, leads Eve to believe that they have more than a simple murder investigation on their hands. She and Roger Hamilton, the senior investigating officer, find themselves desperately trying to keep their lives, their sanity and the investigation on track whilst being constantly and tantalizingly side-tracked by the mysterious group Grigori Enterprises who seem hell-bent on obstructing the investigation.
