Markus Ortmann is in a jam. Outside his door are nine armed men, each of them waiting to collect on an old debt that he owes a local mob boss.

It’s a bad day to be stone cold broke.

Especially since a beautiful young woman is tempting him with the promise of paying off his debt. But there’s a catch: he has to help her find the vile creature who sucked the soul from her father’s body before casting him aside like a piece of rotten meat.

He knows where the creature lives. He’s taken more than a few people to it over the years. But none of them ever return. To take her is little short of murder, given she’ll end up just like her old man.

But in a few more seconds, he’ll be leaking blood from too many holes to care about that.
