Alex Locke is an ex-convict who’s worked hard to put his murky past behind him. But when his daughter is threatened with violence, he’s forced back into London’s criminal underworld for one more job. He agrees to steal a priceless artifact – a human heart carved from blackest obsidian – from the home of a decrepit old man. But the burglary goes horribly wrong, and Alex is plunged into the
nightmarish world of the Wolves of London, a band of unearthly assassins who will stop at nothing to reclaim the heart. As he races to unlock the secrets of the mysterious object, Alex must learn to wield its dark power – or be destroyed by it.
