For these travellers are Vampire Slayers and Chust is a dying community - where the dead come back to wreak revenge on the living. Years on from My Swordhand is Singing and Peter is still on the trail of the Shadow Queen.
His search leads him to Venice, a city whose beauty disguises many ugly secrets.
