The Near Now . As the Possibility Wars™ turn realms against each other, an Orrorshan Nightmare seizes control of a portion of the GodNet with a diabolical plan to use the Cyberpapacy's greatest weapon against it.
The people of New Culmont have more to fear than the Inquisition and gospog attacks. Their young women are being murdered, their bodies stripped of cyberware. And the killer leaves a taint of horror behind him unlike anything they've ever known ...
The bloody trail leads into the GodNet, where spectral figures have been seen and a strange, ebon-hued creature has torn apart innocent deckers. From a trial by fire to battles with horrors both in and out of the Net, the Knights must plunge into a whirlpool of fear if they wish to save the lives of thousands.
