De temporum signis – On the Signs of the Times

Mutilated bodies turning up in London with quotations from long-dead heretic Giordano Bruno’s writing carved into their skins, a young man found overdosed in a warehouse, his right hand missing, a pretender to the vacant throne.

A giant with the eyes of a fanatic on a quest for a Bruno manuscript long thought lost approaches Wolf, a bookseller who finds things.

With dead bodies accumulating in the morgue, Contractor Jaared Sen — with his sight restored — finds himself investigating the source of the quotes, unsure of their place in the murders.

Then there’s the House, crouching, brooding and dark in a London street, guarding its secrets — waiting for… something.
