Being a vampire assassin is a deadly way to make a living, but when you’re also considered the new master vampire of Orlando, things can get complicated. It’s a dilemma that has become Paul Isaac’s reality. A late night knock at the door forces Paul to make promises he knows he won’t be able to keep. But when human lives of old friends hang in the balance of vampire politics and law, no choice is easy. After an attempt on his life by a couple of old adversaries, Paul learns no matter which side of the grave or which side of the law, nothing can be trusted. This game of death had become personal and only his spilt blood can stop it. Something is out there hunting him. Old. Powerful. Deadly. And killing it will only make matters worse.
