Harry Keogh, Necroscope, is no more . . .
And the Wamphyri are back - not only in the Vampire World, where the ancient northern ice has melted to release the original, the most evil, most powerful vampires of all time, but in our world, too. Without Necroscope - the one man who could talk to the dead and undead alike - only Ben Trask and the weirdly talented espers of his secret organisation, E- Branch, stand between Mankind's survival and its domination by terrible invaders from Starside.
Trask: human lie-detector; David Chung: locator of all things evil; Ian Goodfly: precog, whose glimpses of the ever-furtive future have so often saved the lives of his E-Branch colleagues. Three men, their technology and the esoteric talents against shape-changing challengers from a parallel universe. The odds don't look good, and Harry Keogh is dead and gone, his motes scattered throughout the Universes of Light. But as Harry himself was witness, death isn't like that . . .
Harry may be dead, but his legacy lives on.
