Summary
The book begins with Tom binding a Ripper (murderous boggart) in Horshaw. Although he is successful, the Ripper's victim, priest Father Gregory (the Spook's brother) dies from shock. He's sent to be buried in Priestown and the Spook goes there with Tom, to pay his respects and to finally deal with an ancient demon locked in the catacombs under the city. This demon, known as the Bane, has already bested the Spook once and has since grown in power. The Spook makes preparations to enter the catacombs but is betrayed by his cousin, Father Cairns, and both he and Alice are arrested by the Quisitor, a witch hunter who despises Spooks
