US Army Captain Dale Morton is a magician soldier—a “craftsman.” After a black-ops mission gone wrong, Dale is cursed by a Persian sorcerer. Major Michael Endicott, a Puritan craftsman, finds gruesome evidence that the evil Mortons have returned, and that Dale might be one of them. Meanwhile, Dale uncovers treason in the Pentagon’s highest covert ranks. As he hunts for his enemies before they can murder him, Endicott pursues Dale, divided between his duty to capture a rogue soldier and his desire to protect Dale from his would-be assassins. Together, they will discover that the demonic horrors that have corrupted American magic are not bound by family, or even death itself.
