But first, Constantine and his beautiful, young wife Epiphany must journey to Ireland to track down his long-lost nephew, an alleged occultist serial killer driven bad by blighted Constantine blood. A peculiar cult, pissed off faeries, and an old, hungry ghost all await Constantine in the Emerald Isle. John has found ways to skirt death so many times before--has this con man's luck run out?
