Set in the dark futuristic world of Pearl City year 2040, “MALACHI IX” is a sci-fi supernatural drama about an alcoholic priest consumed with rage who struggles with the vow he has made to protect the city from vicious vampires and his lack of faith in the human race. His commitment is tainted by the breach of the blood source treaty, made 900 years ago, between the two governing bodies, the Holy Order Church and the Royal Republic of the Vicoy, inciting vampires to attack and leaving Malachi IX with no choice but to resentfully fulfill his commitment. Unfortunately, his crimes negligently executed push Daren Corbet, an arrogant but brilliant detective, to involve Malachi IX in his investigation to find the murderer. Daren’s only clue has been a list of seven names! Six of which are already dead… The seventh, Katlin Stone, is the name of a beautiful mysterious blood lab scientist, who he believes will be the next victim of the serial killer. Will he realize in time that “MALACHI IX” is the killer he desperately wants to catch?
