The Vivisectionist: Lazarus of Bethany, Simon Magus, Vampires and a Final Confrontation
Brought back from the dead, Lazarus found he couldn't die again. He has spent the last 2,000 years guarding the shepherds and the flock from evil that normal men can't fight.
When Simon Magus' offer to buy his way into the fellowship of the Apostles was rejected, he turned to the ancient mystery schools, gaining immortality through dark trials. Creating vampiric servants, he's spent his time perfecting his unholy craft while his minions grow in number, preying on humans.
Always circling, Lazarus and Simon have their final confrontation in a colony of vampires.
