When Inspector Rostnikov arrives in the town of Arkush with Emil Karpo, the policeman nicknamed the Vampire, he finds a community stunned by the murder of the outspoken Father Merhum.

Meanwhile, Rostnikov's other associates plunge into the seedy world of Moscow night life, following the cold trail of a missing girl and the bloody tracks of a cunning killer....
