This is the story of Jacknife Grimm, the wandering poet, the man who once upon a time was a ferocious killer. He used to count his victims, engraving on their forehead a digit with progressive numbering, until death also came for him. But twenty years later, in the city of Ardiss, new victims appear, numbered in the same way. And the ghastly count resumes from the point at which it had been interrupted... Brendon and Margot, the sad and likeable militia girl whose acquaintance we made in the album The reflection of Evil, dash off in pursuit of the assassin , up to the unexpected grand finale.
