After a bomb explosion in the middle of London, Peter Talion is hired to uncover the secret cult responsible – and eliminate its leader.

Death stalks the unwary as Talion continues his search for the fanatical religious cult dedicated to the bombing of churches. His meeting with the ‘Badger Man’ starts a chain of events which ends fatally.

Life in the commune has become very disturbed since Talion’s arrival and with surprising information he comes closer to uncovering the identities of the members of the religious cult. Taking part in one of the cult’s more deadly rituals, Talion is aided by a most unexpected ally.

“I’ll go hunt the badger by owl-light;
‘Tis a deed of darkness.”
(The Duchess of Malfi)
