Publisher's Summary

Some people help the less fortunate. Others kill them.

Evil has many guises. Jack Taylor has encountered most of them but nothing before has ever truly terrified him until a group called Headstone rears its ugly head. An elderly priest is viciously beaten until nearly dead. A special-needs boy is brutally attacked. A series of seemingly random, insane, violent events even has the Guards shaken.

Most would see a headstone as a marker of the dead, but this coterie of evil intends to act as a death knell to every aspect of Jack's life as an act of appalling violence alerts him to the horror enveloping Galway. Accepting the power of Headstone, Jack realizes that in order to fight back he must relinquish the remaining shreds of what has made him human - knowledge that may have come too late to prevent an act of such ferocious evil that the whole country would be changed forever - and in the worst way.

With awful clarity, Jack knows that not only might he be powerless to stop it but that he may not have the grit needed to even face it.
