Marienburg is the greatest port in the Old World, a melting pot of cultures and races, a centre for trade and commerce, a den of the worst kinds of thieves and villains. When he is made a captain of the Watch, ex-Imperial army officer Kurt Schnell soon finds his promotion is a poison chalice. His watch station is in the worst part of town, his men are scum, strange creatures prowl the streets at night - what more could possibly go wrong?
David Bishop is a well-known author of cult fiction, with several novels to his name. In his first foray into the world of Warhammer the rotting underbelly of Marienburg is exposed for all to see as corrupt watchmen, crime lords and worse all vie for power.
