Summary (From the publisher):

About midday the white cat emerged from Grace's open window and walked along the sills of the Rookery, jumping from disastrous ledge to ledge, and down and up the vertiginous heights.
It surveyed the slums, the winding streets that were in parts so narrow, only cats could walk two abreast. Also, from the roof, later, the distant avenues of infamous Black Church where, in antique times, dark priests had had a monastery and worshipped the Devil.
Then, in the night, as the moon rose, the white cat sang. It sang in a high and sacred voice ...

Grace is green-eyed, beautiful, a psychic healer - and also a whore. She walks the streets of Black Church to make a living.

After years of horror and poverty as a brothel slave, Saul Anger was adopted into a life of ease, and he has now taken on the mantle of his dead uncle's house, as well as the leadership of a secret society whose figurehead is Anubis, the jackal god of Egypt. Dedicated to justice and retribution, this society will destroy those it deems evil. There must always be blood.

One midnight, in the great clock-tower of the city a man hangs himself - and secret desires are let loose. A demon now stalks the streets and alleys, slaying the wicked and the innocent alike. But can Saul locate the source of destruction and tame it?

Or will beautiful Grace - who has fallen in love with him - be able to stem this tide of madness and primeval terror? For, aided by the goddess Pasht and by all the cats of the city, perhaps she alone can turn back the clock.
