The hunt is on to find the last of the Gat Shiem Brothers. Famine learns that Pesti is not in Hell's Labyrinth, but in an urisen house somewhere hidden in Doll's Lane, which is the red light scene of Apocalypse's Second District. Strange and terrible things are happening to the people of this district. People are frightened about a baleful rider in grey stalking the streets at the dead of night on a ghost horse with his bow and arrow ready to claim an unwitting soul. Famine is not deterred, focused on saving his baby brother. In order to do so, he must experience the darkest depths of the human ego. This time, he must face it on his own with the Baleful Rider passing judgement on his soul.
