And so begins the adventures of Nathanial Carrington -- dapper man about town and enthusiastic coward -- as he stumbles upon a series of grisly murders after helping his neighbour fake his suicide.
A murdered industrialist with a terrible secret. His second, much younger wife and her immaculately well-dressed lover -- who probably also has a terrible secret. A gentleman thief with a taste for blood. An occult detective with a taste for opium. A drunken rogue on the run, a deserter from the Foreign Legion, and an intrepid reporter who just wants her money. With a supporting cast of rusty kitchen knives, elaborate moustaches, disapproving maiden aunts ... and a hideously carved stone idol of sinister implication.
Adventure! Empire! Grisly Mutilation!
