In the war-torn future of the 41st millennium, the Inquisition fights a secret war against mankind's most deadly enemies - the alien, the heretic and the daemon - to protect the Imperium of Man and the souls of humanity.
Inquisitor Gideon Ravenor, proud servant of the Ordo Hereticus, continues his fight against the dark forces that threaten mankind. Horribly crippled at the very start of his career, Ravenor's body is permanently confined to a mobile life-support system, yet his intellect is without peer, and he is a powerful psyker.
In the third book of the series, Ravenor continues his persecution of the arch-heretic Zygmunt Molotch - a hunt that has, for him, now become an obsession. When another band of Inquisition agents is slaughtered, Ravenor and his team go rogue, pursuing their quarry in direct contravention of Inquisition orders. Thrown through time and space, pitted against enemies of limitless power and cunning, just how much must Ravenor and his team sacrifice to save the day?
