Having completed their comeback album Malandanti and butchered their Belarussian rivals backstage at the 2016 Gwando Awards, Toten Herzen prepare to tour the world. Taking time out between concerts Rene secretly explores the Lost Valley and the possibility of creating a permanent home there.
But rival band There Will Be Blood refuses to die and a new line-up is created fuelled by Toten Herzen's notoriety and funded by arms dealers. Ambitious plans to sabotage the tour collide with events chronicled in Who Among Us... and The One Rule of Magic. (TotenUniverse books 3 and 4.)
When Interpol's Bernadette Maldini extends her investigation into Malandanti crime and the murder of Frieda Schoenhofer in Rotterdam she begins to unpeel the layers of the Toten Herzen myth. She discovers Susan Bekker's 'Big Lie,' the tragic truth behind the death of Lorraine Daley's father, and a key book in Dee Vincent's private collection.
The man behind the myth, Rob Wallet, sacked but secure on his Monaco yacht, the Agnetha, exorcises his past in the company of ghost hunters, but his past and several other surprises are about to catch up with him.
The world burns in the wake of Toten Herzen's disastrous tour. Goblin sellers, pig hunters, Armageddon Bells and a man called Alf join a cast of thousands and one crocodile to ensure There Will Be Blood in the fifth book of the TotenUniverse.
