Harry Keogh, Necroscope, is no more...

And the Wamphyri are back - not only in the Vampire World, where the ancient northern ice has melted to release the original, the most evil, most powerful vampires of all time, but in our world, too. Without the Necroscope - the one man who could talk to the dead and the undead alike - only Ben Trask and his weirdly talented espers of his secret organization, E-Branch, stand between Mankind's survival and its domination by terrible invaders out of Starside.

Trask: human lie-detector; David Chung: locator of all things evil; Ian Goodfly: precog, whose glimpses of ever-furtive future have so often saved the lives of his E-Branch colleagues. Three men, their technology and their esoteric talents against shape-changing challengers from a parallel universe. The odds don't look good, and Harry Keogh is dead and gone, his motes scattered throughout all the universes of Light. But as Harry himself was witness, death isn't like that...

Harry may be dead, but his legacy lives on.


Three great vampires - two Lords and a Lady - fall upon an unsuspecting Earth, a world teeming with defenseless human life. easy prey for the marauding vampires, mankind will quickly be laid waste, or so they think.

But Earth has defenders. Though the Necroscope is gone, the ESP-powered spy organization he once led still exists. Mentally alert for the slightest sign of vampire taint, the men and women of E-Branch have already moved against the fringes of vampire infestation.

Destroying minor vampires is all well and good, but the Lords and Lady must be found and eradicated. Without Harry Keogh and his connection to the teeming dead, E-Branch seems crippled, always two steps behind it's enemies.

When a young man turns up in the triply locked "Harry's Room" in E-Branch's London HQ, no one quite knows what to make of him - least of all the young man himself. Jake remembers running for his life, thousands of miles from London...and then nothing.

Now he feels a curious whispering deep within his mind. And his dreams have become very strange, filled with visitations from dead vampires and dead people and Harry Keogh himself.

If Jake is the new Necroscope, he has to learn - fast! - how to control his powers and speak to the dead. E-Branch, with the reluctant Jake along for the ride, is about to go head-to-head with Malinari the Mind, a vampire Lord whose psychic ability is second to none.

But the dead don't trust Jake, not like they once trusted Harry. jake's spending too much time talking to a dead vampire, and too much time on personal revenge. He's got to start thinking about the future - or he won't have one!
