Description

When a mysterious killer haunts Arkham, three struggling investigators must confront the eldritch horrors of their past in this action-packed pulp adventure from the world of Arkham Horror

In the swirling sewers beneath Arkham, excavators uncover a crystalline formation that hints at dark events from the city’s past. As the discovery makes headlines, so too does a series of bizarre murders. With no leads, the Arkham police are always one step behind. Acting on a hunch, down-on-his luck former journalist Andy Van Nortwick reunites with adventurer Jake Williams and struggling filmmaker Maude Brion to unearth the truth. The trio know of the supernatural horrors that lurk beyond this world, and the reality haunts them. But time is running out and between them they must face their nightmares before the city of Arkham is lost to blood and chaos.

An accidental discovery during sewer renovations leads to mysteries about Arkham's past and a series of heinous murders. A murderer proclaiming himself as the Lamprey stands in the way of journalist Andy Van Nortwick, adventurer Jake Williams, and movie star Maude Brion back from battling the Spider Queen. This story also features appearances by Wendy Adams, Rex Murphy, Charlie Kane and more investigators we all know and love from the Arkham Horror Universe.
SA Sidor ties together action and horror in a story filled with thrills, anticipation, and plot twists as he proves he can compete with pulp fiction greats.

This was another wonderful entry in the Arkham Horror series, I was so hooked at the beginning of the book to the end. It had what I enjoyed from previous entries in the Arkham Horror and from the author. S A Sidor has a great writing style and had the same power as previous books that I had enjoyed. I look forward to reading more in this series and the author.

“Syrx-Crugoth. I have found thee at last. I live to serve thee, and thee alone. Now thine name is known unto me. Soon I pray to see your awful face, your unforgiving crown. Grant me thine cruel blessing. Imbue my acts with the coldness of your embrace as you have before.”
