England's coolest underground investigators continue to crack occult cases. When his ex-girlfriend's father gets the beatdown of a lifetime behind bars, it's up to Morrison and his gambler's cunning to protect him. But when the tables are turned, it's Morrison that needs far-from-divine intervention.
The UK's hottest occult detectives continue their solving spree with a gruesome discovery in a cemetery. Pretty young dead things, ritual killings of the lowest and highest echelons of London society and people-trafficking feature predominantly in the series that mania.com says "...feels like Hellblazer meets The Mod Squad ... Its compelling characters, vivid settings, and delicious mysteries set the stage for another fantastic ongoing from Vertigo."
With the discovery of another dead girl, Morrison's search for a breakthrough becomes even more splintered as the team splits up to follow separate theories. But time is running out as the killers also begin to fall apart, with fatal consequences that could affect the entire city of London.
As the final clues to the ritual killings fall into place, Morrison and the Vinyl Underground are in a race against time. And just as the killers begin to dispose of the evidence and, worse, their remaining victims, Morrison learns the truth about a family member that could destroy him once and for all.
Horribly jaded, Morrison's friends realize that betrayal is the new game. They've become the unknowing tools of a vicious empire-builder and it's time to turn the tables before everything goes up in flames. "London's Burning," just like the song says, in the conclusion to the series.
In this fast-paced, ultra-cool ongoing crime noir series, an unlikely quartet of occult detectives secretly solve crimes--from DJ crack bars in Camden to the elegant, high-society ballrooms that make up modern London. The Vinyl Underground is led by Morrison Shepherd, a D-list celebrity darling, soul DJ, and son of an ex-footballer. Fresh out of prison and off a nasty coke habit, Morrison is joined by a fellow ex-con named Perv, whose seizures give him clues to crimes long before the cops, and Leah, a gorgeous morgue assistant who leads a double life online and represents the brawn of the team. Morrison's ex-flame Abi is reluctantly forced to join the team when her father is implicated for murder. A young boy's head (with diamonds in the eye sockets) washes up on the edge of the Thames and seems to be connected to a series of ritual killings, a drug called Khat, and Muti magic. Can they get to the bottom of it?
