Joe has been a long time healing from the events at the Dragon Factory. He’s actually on vacation in London when the Royal London Hospital is bombed. As the only DMS agent available in Europe he is attached to the investigation. Just as he is starting to make some headway he’s called out to the Orkney Isles to attempt to contain a situation at a bio-weapons research lab. Someone is terrorizing ordinary men and women into committing atrocities; someone who is working for a shadowy organization calling itself the Seven Kings.

The Kings are dedicated to destabilizing the world. Anything that might cause chaos, and result in profit for them, is fair game. Terrorism, assassinations, disease, scarcity, coups; all of these are weapons in the King’s arsenal. But the Kings themselves remain shrouded in darkness. The DMS has tangled with the Chosen, the street level minions of the Kings’ organization. They have once engaged the Kingsmen, the upper level of soldiers, but of the Kings themselves there is no sign. The only thing they know is that the Kings want to drown the world in a river of blood. That is ominous, but terribly vague. How do you fight something that sounds like a biblical curse?
