The Darkest Hand Prequel
Apr 26, 2019
In the bustling streets of Sarajevo in June 1914, the dead body of a priest lies, head shattered by the impact of a fall from a building high above. As the city prepares for the arrival of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, grim-faced inquisitor Tacit Poldek is faced not only with the challenge of discovering why the priest has been killed, but also confronting other menaces at large in the city.
With terrible danger only ever one step away and his private demons silenced only by strong drink, THE HUNTED introduces us to the brilliant but flawed soul that is the unorthodox Catholic inquisitor Tacit Poldek. It is a world both like and unlike our own but in which the Inquisition, is alive and well yet existing in the shadows; in which history is poised to take dangerous and unpredictable paths; where evil assumes many horrific forms, and the threat to humanity - and to love - is ever constant.
