An occult thief takes on a sinister society threatening to tear the fabric of this world apart, in this daring noir-thriller from the bestselling world of Arkham Horror

Countess Alessandra Zorzi, reformed thief and acquirer of occult artifacts, faces her greatest challenge yet as she searches for an elusive artist in possession of the powerful Zanthu Tablet; the only thing that can stop the strange psychic malaise afflicting Alessandra’s assistant, Pepper.

The countess’s quest takes her to the crooked heart of Venice, where an eerie organization is planning a grand performance that will engulf the city in chaos. As Pepper slips into an inescapable alien world, Alessandra must defeat powerful forces to save her friend. One wrong move could bring the curtain down on them all.

"The Countess Zorzi series is an excellent example of adventure horror"

"Mr. Reynolds' obvious love of the City of Venice combined with his enjoyment of the Arkham setting meet in Song of Carcosa to make a fabulous mythos noir yarn that repeatedly hit some of my favorite notes in my favorite IP."
