What can the right design with the right ink administered to the flesh by the right hand do? Conquer the world. Duke Tattingham believes he’s found the Thousand-year Tattooist, the young magi, the one person capable of inking the legendary dooms-day tattoo and he will stop at nothing to get his hands on the boy. It falls on the shoulders of the queen’s special operative Abner Hornsby and his Maori partner Tapu to save the child… and mankind.
