Cynthia Leighton is going to Texas. Cyn’s a private investigator with a reputation as someone who can get the job done and doesn’t mind working at night . . . with vampires. JABRIL Karim is a vampire lord, one of only eight in all of North America, those few powerful vampires who literally hold the power of life and death over their followers.
In Texas, Cyn will discover a whole new level of evil. JABRIL wants her to find and return to him his runaway “ward” — a wealthy and orphaned seventeen year old girl who has escaped his clutches. But Cyn would rather die than surrender anyone to the vile vampire lord, much less a teenaged girl. Her search for the runaway will take her through the streets of Houston and back to L.A., right into the arms of Raphael who stands accused of a series of murders he didn’t commit. Cyn sets out to track down the real killer before her missing girl becomes his next victim, not knowing that the vicious Jabril Karim has set his own sights on Cyn herself.
