From the author ofInterview with the Vampire, thisnational bestseller begins a divinely thrilling new series about an assassin with the choice to turn from darkness to light.
It's the present day. Toby O Dare aka Lucky the Fox is a contract killer on assignment once again. He's a soulless soul, a dead man walking. His nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions is disrupted when a mysterious stranger, a seraph, offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives. O Dare, who long ago dreamt of being a priest, seizes his chance. Now he is carried back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark realms where children suddenly die or disappear, and accusations of ritual murder have been made against Jews. Here O Dare begins his perilous quest for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and betrayal, selflessness and love.
