Cover blurb:
Thick black clouds are blotting out the skies over Cardiff. As twenty-four inches of rain fall in twenty-four hours, the city centre's drainage system collapses. The capital's homeless are being murdered, their mutilated bodies left lying in the soaked streets around the Blaidd Dwrg nuclear facility.

Tracked down by Torchwood, the killer calmly drops eight storeys to his death. But the killings don't stop. Their investigations lead Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Toshiko Sato to a monster in a bathroom, a mystery at an army base and a hunt for stolen nuclear fuel rods. Meanwhile, Owen Harper goes missing from the Hub, when a game in Second Reality leads him to an old girlfriend...

Something is coming, forcing its way through the Rift, straight into Cardiff Bay.

Featuring Captain Jack Harness as played by John Barrowman, with Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshika Sato and Ianto Jones as played by Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Naoki Mori and Gareth David-Lloyd, in the hit series created by Russell T Davies for BBC Television.

Cover blurb:
DIE ROMANSERIE ZUM TV-ERFOLG!

Von einer unterirdischen Basis aus, die auf einem Riss im Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum gebaut ist, reagiert das Torchwood-Team auf jegliche außerirdische Bedrohung. Torchwood agiert unabhängig von der Regierung und Polizei — nach eigenen Regeln. Geführt von dem rätselhaften Captain Jack Harkness, befasst sich das Team mit dem Unbekannten und bekämpft das Unmögliche.

Mit Captain Jack Harkness, in der TV-Serie verkorpert von John Barrowman, und mit Gwen Cooper, Owen Harper, Toshika Sato und Ianto Jones, dongestelt von Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Naoki Mori und Gareth David-Lloyd. Nach einer Idee von Russell T. Davies, der die Serie für BBC Television entwickelt hat.

Dicke, dunkle Wolken ziehen am Himmel über Cardiff auf. Sintflutartiger Regen lässt die Kanalisation der Metropole kollabieren. Obdachlose werden in der walisischen Hauptstadt umgebracht und ihre verstümmelten Körper auf den durchweichten Straßen in der Nähe der Blaidd-Drwg-Nuklearanlage abgelegt.

Als Torchwood den Mörder in die Enge treibt, lässt er sich in aller Seelenruhe aus dem achten Stock fallen. Aber die Morde hören nicht auf...
