Procession of the Dead

Shan, Darren 1999

New York Times bestselling YA author Darren Shan makes his adult fiction debut with this first book in a new series set in a darkly imagined world called the City. What had I done before coming to the city? I couldn't remember. It sounded crazy but my past was a blank.

I could recall every step since alighting from the train, but not a single one before. Young, quick-witted and cocksure, Capac Raimi arrives in the City determined to make his mark in a world of sweet, sinister sin. He finds the City is a place of exotic dangers: a legendary assassin with snakes tattooed on his face who moves like smoke, blind Incan priests that no one seems to see, a kingpin who plays with puppets, and friends who mysteriously disappear as though they never existed.

Then Capac crosses paths with The Cardinal, and his life changes forever. The Cardinal is the City, and The City is The Cardinal. They are joined at the soul. Nothing moves on the streets, or below them, without the Cardinal's knowledge. His rule is absolute.

When Capac discovers the extent of The Cardinal's influence on his own life, he is faced with hard choices and his own soaring ambition. To find his way, Capac must know himself and what he is capable of. But how can you trust yourself when you can't remember your past?

Until Ford promises him the one thing he truly craves-retribution against the man who killed those he loved most and destroyed his life.
