The first volume in a noirish, gritty urban fantasy for adults from the bestselling author otherwise known as Darren Shan. Quick-witted and cocksure, young upstart Capac Raimi arrives in the City determined to make his mark. As he learns the tricks of his new trade from his Uncle Theo - extortion, racketeering, threatening behaviour - he's soon well on his way to becoming a promising new gangster. Then he crosses paths with The Cardinal, and his life changes forever.
Darren Shan is the author of two hugely popular series for Children: 'The Saga of Darren Shan', and 'The Demonata' which have been read by millions of people around the world in over twenty different languages. The City Trilogy is his first work for adults. Darren Shan lives in Ireland.
