Something stirs in London’s dark–and has viciously murdered Saul Garamond’s father. Framed for the crime, Saul breaks out of prison with the help of King Rat, and plunges into a subterranean world of rats, garbage, blood, and madness–a world Saul was born to rule. But King Rat has plans for Saul, his special weapon in a war that goes back to a town called Hamelin. . . .
“A riveting, brilliant novel.”–Charles de Lint
