The old world with its many refinements is gone forever. Alexandra McBloodbane Pickman, daughter of the infamous Richard Upton Pickman, has retired to her crumbling mausoleum on a cliff overlooking her beloved Hudson River. Here she will remember her father and her fallen noble family of military ghouls out of legend, and write her long overdue memoirs. Her solitude is warmed only by the welcome presence of hundreds and hundreds of cats; living cats, those long dead feline companions of her father, and cats dreaming nightly from their beds. That solitude is interrupted unexpectedly by an impudent young ghoul who would lure her back into the world.
