Malevolent aliens, the Mordri Three decide to become so evil that God himself will have to stop them.  They can alter flesh with a simple touch, literally turning people inside out or seeding them with cancer.  The Three have already destroyed an entire solar system and most of their own race.  Their next targets: mankind and Earth!
 
 On Earth, Scott St. John is mourning his beloved wife when he is struck by a golden arrow of light--a fragment of the soul of Harry Keogh, the original Necroscope--and gains powers he does not understand.  A mysterious, beautiful woman appears, desperately trying to warn Scott about something . . . then vanishes mid-word.  Scott dreams of a very unusual Wolf, who begs him--in human speech--for rescue.
 
 A fledgling Necroscope, a telepathic Wolf, a beautiful woman from beyond the stars, the ghost of Harry Keogh, the best of E-Branch's psychic fighting forces, and a dead girl who is not yet ready to seek her just reward must defeat three impossibly strong, psychically gifted monsters whose touch literally melts flesh from bone.

A RÉSUMÉ OF SORTS

At 3:33 a.m. on a wild and rainy Sunday in mid-February, 1990, thirteen members of E-Branch---the strangest, most esoteric of England’s several Secret Services---experienced something that astonished even them: the destruction of a man who was once one of their own, but no longer. They experienced, in fact, the death of Harry Keogh, Necroscope, transmitted to E-Branch HQ via some fantastic and unknown psychic medium from a world in a parallel universe, a world known only as Sunside/Starside.
