Fans are devoted to Sebastian, who calls upon his experience as an agent during the Napoleonic Wars to embark on desperate quests to catch brutal killers and serve his own fierce sense of justice. Along the way and amongst these quests, an abundance of Sebastian’s family secrets are revealed, and more have yet to be uncovered.

Soon Sebastian uncovers a disturbing pattern of missing children that leads him to yet another sickening discovery: someone from society's upper echelon is preying upon the city's most vulnerable. Though few with power are willing to stand up for what’s right, Sebastian will not rest until this monster is brought to justice.
