Sir Konrad Vonvalt is an Emperor's Justice - a feared lawman granted the combined powers of a detective, judge and executioner. His only purpose is to uphold the law in the Emperor's name, through any means necessary. To this end, Vonvalt travels the Empire, dispensing justice by way of his sharp intellect, magical powers and - when necessary - a strong sword arm.

Yet these are dangerous times, even for a Justice. The hinterlands are rife with rebels and heretics, while in the imperial capital a powerful alliance of patricians and templar knights seeks to overthrow the Order of the Magistratum and claim its arcane secrets for their own.

Vonvalt cares little for imperial politics. But when he investigates the murder of a provincial noblewoman, he uncovers a startling web of lies and deceit; and a conspiracy that might bring the Empire of the Wolf to its knees...
