THE THREAT - The Red Death, leader of the cult of vampires known as the Order of Dreadful Night, is about to seize control of the two secret organizations that rule the World of Darkness. The only obstacles to his plan for global domination are two humans, Dire McCann and Alicia Varney.
THE HORROR - Unknown to the Red Death, his unholly allies, fire demons from another dimension, have been manipulating him for their own ends. If the Red Death succeeds, unimaginable terror will be unleashed upon the world.
THE FINAL CONFRONTATION - Now is the time for the battle of the Unbeholden. From the catacombs of Paris, to the deserts of Israel, to an ancient crypt far beneath the streets of Vienna, Dire McCann and the Red Death engage in a titanic struggle from which only one can emerge victorious. It is a duel to the death, a battle that will at last reveal the astonishing truth behind the Masquerade of the Red Death.
