"When Baines, a megalomaniac arms manufacturer, employs for a secret personal project the Black sorcerer Theron Ware, D.D., all hell is let loose - literally!
One other man is fully aware of their evil machinations, Brother Domenico Garelli of the small, obscure order of Monte Albano, and because of the strict limitations placed on his powers he finds himself unable to stop the rising tide of horror. "each of the opposing sides in any war always predicts victory."
