From release/information:

From PR Material: When Kamphor's west end sees a series of prostitutes murdered, its citizens are fearful that a serial killer known as the Knife has returned. But the mortician Sink, owner of Kamphor's finest morgue, doesn't believe that the Knife has resumed killing -- and he'd prove it, if his former student and current hateful rival Damien Torvault wasn't getting in the way.

Sink and his two apprentices, handsome-if-loony Joshua Finkle and merkind Vona Urgarth, investigate the murders on their own. Sink's ability to tell exactly when and how a person will die just by touching them earns him no friends, but it does yield some interesting clues -- as does Sink's other gift....

Sink presses urgently on, because he senses a strangeness in the air: the magic smell of necromancy, a magic that has long been illegal in Kamphor...for it requires human sacrifice.
