The Darkest Hand trilogy
The critically acclaimed Dark Fiction trilogy.1914. The outbreak of war. In the French city of Arras, a priest is brutally murdered. The Catholic Inquisition — still powerful, but now working in the shadows — sends its most determined and unhinged of Inquisitors, Poldek Tacit, to investigate: his mission to defeat their enemies; demons, werewolves, heretics, no matter what the cost.
