London is in the grip of an epidemic. Across the city, people are dying in freak accidents. There doesn't seem to be much of a connection, until some of the bodies yield puzzling strips of paper. Each one carries angular, indecipherable hieroglyphics. Advertising executive Harry Buckingham, to his horror, is linked with several of the victims. His father, his secretary, even the thief who steals his car all die in horrific circumstances. Soon he's avoiding the police and following his own investigation. What he uncovers is more frightening than anyone can imagine. A multinational company has succeeded in combining sophisticated technology with ancient mythology. Harry calls it pure evil. The devil is loose in London. And only a handful of people know enough to stop the most hostile take-over bid of all time...
