We meet the residents of Belgrave Square’s Hargrave House: Hence Unruh, the Vessel of Darkness and their Factotum, Moore; Constance ‘The Angel’ O’Neill, the American visitor; and Dr Marta Weiss, the Mother. Their attention falls on reports of the death of a maid at St james’ Street and they decide that this is a mystery worthy of investigation. There’s a vase full of blood, an early death, a bedroom with a changed function, and an endangered … then the Rites of Salt and Smoke are invoked and the ground floor windows blow out …

When a Pinkerton leaves their card, Angel the American visits a grand hotel, where a Scotland Yard detective regrets interrupting her. Meanwhile Hence, the Vessel, and Moore, the Factotum, head to Cremorne Gardens where there’s a young lover implicated, a creature confronted and a pearl exchanged … and that’s before the hunters seek a vampire in the storm drains below Limehouse … there will be blood …
