From back of book: Tristopolitan police lieutenant Donal Riordan returned form the dead for one purpose: to stop the killer who took not only his life but his reason for living it. But first he must penetrate a secret cabal known as the Black Circle whose stranglehold on the city's elite is preparation for a magical coup d'état fueled by unprecedented bloodshed. At the center of this ring of evil is the man responsible for his lover's murder--a man Donal has already had to kill once before. But how can he stop an evil that death only makes stronger?
