An elder member of the occult-battling pack of Wise Dogs recalls a harrowing mission—in U.S-occupied Japan after World War II, a mysterious curse creates an army of crawling, disembodied heads which threatens to overwhelm the region. Emrys and a team of canine companions attempt to solve the mystery, bringing them into conflict with shape-changing tanuki, evil oni, and a horde of vengeful demons.

INGRID: As if the central concept of intelligent, magic using dogs who solve supernatural mysteries wasn’t awesome enough, this story arc takes us back to post-WW2 Japan and whole new kinds of terror. I am over the moon about this book!
