When a powerful demon crosses the Farfall Mountains, the task of tracking and slaying it falls to a man not expected to succeed:
Jebediah Skayne, lothario, hustler, hunter of nightmares.
Jeb follows the demon's "blood trail" to the fishing town of Portis, where it vanishes. All that remains are the demon's leftovers: corpses, half-dressed, killed in the throes of passion.
Forced to rely on more mundane methods of investigation, Jeb uncovers a town rife with corruption, where a man will kill you for looking at a woman the wrong way.
A town where his own inner demons can no longer hide.
