"John Constantine may not be the nicest man you'll ever meet, but there's plenty who are worse--and now that he's back in eternal, ever-changing London, he's about to discover some prime examples of the species. After spending a lifetime knee-deep in the necromancy trenches, Constantine has seen every shade of self-aggrandizement that the predators of the world have to offer, making it all too easy for him to track them down and corner them in their squalid little lairs. Because the ugly truth is, no matter how many pseudomystical rationalizations the tossers spout, they can't disguise the soul-crushing banality of their evil. To defeat them, all he has to do is peel away their delusions and hold up a mirror. After all, no one knows the torment of true self-knowledge better than John Constantine."--Back cover

Silver Kincaid, one of the original G-Men, has just committed suicide in the most public and grotesque way imaginable. That's not good news for Vought-American's number one franchise, with G-Force, G-Coast, G-Style, G-Wiz, the G-Brits and the G-Nomads all depending on their slice of the G-pie. There's far too much at stake for anyone to go poking around the G-Mansion now. Who knows what dirty secrets might be waiting down there in the dark? So it's just too bad that Butcher, Hughie, Mother's Milk, the Frenchman and the Female have decided to do precisely that. Even if they risk finally biting off much, much more than they can chew."--Publisher's description
