Reva and Ansee face new threats as an ancient evil is imported into Tenyl and threatens the city with an undead plague.

Constable Inspector Reva Lunaria's life is looking up. She's managed to put two groups of unruly adventurers in jail and she gets word that her boyfriend, Aavril, has just arrived in port. She is looking forward to a relaxing dinner, a present, and maybe some time getting reacquainted after Aavril's long absence. But Aavril's ship has delivered more than a cargo of spices and exotic merchandise and a new evil begins to take root within Tenyl.

Reva's romantic evening is spoiled by news of a double murder. It should be a simple case, except that the victims have disappeared. Reva's investigation barely gets started before Lord Constable Inspector Betulla contrives a way to get Reva suspended. With Reva temporarily off the force, the murder investigation is given to Constable Inspector Pflamtael, who is looking to find the fastest resolution to the case.

Meanwhile, Seeker Ansee Carya investigates what appears to be a simple missing person case, until he discovers that the missing people - including the two murder victims - have become zombies. Now, Reva, with the aid of a halpbloed cleric, must work from outside the constabulary to figure out who is creating the undead, and how to stop the creatures before all of Tenyl becomes infected.
