In The Edge of Midnight universe, crime pays. Con artists bilk the rich of untold wealth, thieves and robbers snatch purses or steal priceless works of art, and organized crime rings control entire cities from behind the scenes. No one has mastered the fine art of crime better than the gaunts, real-life monsters whose hideous appearance makes them targets of hatred and prejudice. What the world refuses to give them, they learn to take by force. Now, learn the secrets of these terrifying, yet misunderstood underworld denizens, and the normal mobsters who make them fight for every dime. Crime pays, but the cost is steep. How much of your soul will you surrender to claim it?
