Anne Rice returns to the mesmerizing storytelling that has
captivated readers for more than three decades in a tale of
unceasing suspense set in time past—a metaphysical thriller
about angels and assassins.
The novel opens in the present. At its center: Toby O’Dare—a
contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill
once again. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he lives
under a series of aliases—just now: Lucky the Fox—and takes
his orders from “The Right Man.”
Into O’Dare’s nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions
comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a
chance to save rather than destroy lives. O’Dare, who long
ago dreamt of being a priest but instead came to embody
danger and violence, seizes his chance. Now he is carried
back through the ages to thirteenth-century England, to dark
realms where accusations of ritual murder have been made
against Jews, where children suddenly die or disappear . . .
In this primitive setting, O’Dare begins his perilous quest
for salvation, a journey of danger and flight, loyalty and
betrayal, selflessness and love.
