When she goes missing on a cold November morning, George knows exactly who to turn to: the information man. Gifted with the ability to remember everything, Rex Malin is once again called upon to help Ontario's leading citizen. A murder victim, gnawed to death in an alley, draws Malin's attention elsewhere, until realizing Weatherstaff's missing miss and the murder are connected. After aboriginal friend Egbert Watching Moon warns that the eclipse might scatter the veil between the natural and the supernatural, Rex is glad he's not a one-man investigation team. With his gentleman brother Oswald, his infallible and feisty secretary Estella, and her distant cousin Inspector Cavendish, Rex has a strong cavalry assisting him. But it's his experiences during the Great War that provide the smartest clues to Lydia's disappearance, clues the wolves suddenly running rampant around downtown Toronto, and clues the secret to his own powerful memory.
