Sci-fi thriller series.

Father Anton Jonascu has dedicated his life to the homeless in Trashtown. One day, during a raid on the squatter town, he sees a policeman transform into a terrifying demon. When he experiences the same delusion during a service, he becomes convinced that the stress of his work is causing him to hallucinate and he goes to see a doctor. But the doctor, too, has the power to metamorphose, and makes what seems a very tempting offer to the exhausted minister - to give him the power to heal.
