“The lights of the Artesian Hotel flickered as the party drew on into the night. I saw Bart Bessler dancing with Mary, and the bright, dazzling yellow eyes of the French, red-headed woman as she drew in the light around her. I shivered at the sight of the wolf-man killing one of the intruders that night they had chained Bart to the ground.“Destiny of beings is about to come to fruition,” the voice of the being’s human companion rang in my ear.The scene turned to liquid and then I saw Izzy standing in front of me.“You know his face,” a voice that didn’t belong to my sister bellowed from within her.I will return....I will return to my children.
My whole body writhed in pain as the voice filled my head.”

Beskrivelse fra forlaget
Fascinerende personer, eksotiske miljøer og hendelser som vil holde deg limt til sidene: la Djeveldansen lede deg inn i Kristianias farligste miljø. Året er 1900, og Kristiania rammes av flere drap der likene er ille tilredt. Fullmektig Theodor Wulfsberg og hans betjent Bernt Nystuen frykter at Kristiania står over for en lystmorder som Londons Jack the Ripper. En særegen tatovering leder etterforskerne til et miljø med utspring i Berlins dekadente kunstnerkretser.
