With the city back firmly in his grasp, crime lord and entrepreneur... More > Robert Latham is celebrating by bankrolling Metro City’s 200th anniversary gala year, which includes the unveiling of a never-before-seen ancient Aztec stone carving—the Cortes Stone—at the City Gallery. A carving that has thrilled the scientific and artistic communities, but infuriated the monstrous Aztekoth, a creature so vile, so heinous; and whose cult of primeval, revenge-minded Aztec warriors are capable of any atrocity in their aim to retrieve the carving, seek retribution upon its desecrators, and reform their long-dead empire with the flesh of the population of Metro City!
Cult of the Damned is another thrilling adventure in The Wraith series, and is proof again of Dirscherl’s unmatched ability to entertain in the pulp-style for a modern audience.< Less

At any cost.
In the midst of their vicious gang war, a new terror envelopes the city – a virulent plague wipes out thousands, a plague that The Wraith soon discovers to be man-made.

More > the city in his sway. Fear and intimidation rule throughout. One man stands above the rest, willing to fight for freedom.
That man is The Wraith.
The Wraith, the city's bogeyman, is known to exist only by a very few, and seen by even fewer. Those that do know of him, especially Latham, know to fear him, for his fury at those who commit evil knows no bounds. By day, The Wraith is the reclusive millionaire Paul Sanderson, a man more mysterious and less seen than his night-time counterpart.
Sensing the desperation of Latham and that his own time may be limited, Sanderson readies a replacement--Michael Reeve, an honest cop drawn inexorably into a world he may not be ready for.
Can the new Wraith save his city even while he struggles to save his own soul?< Less
