Vampires in Baltimore? It hardly seems likely, but Detective Bianca Jones finds herself on the case anyway. Having vanquished monsters and demons, Bianca became the unofficial monster-hunter of the BPD, catching the assignments no one speaks about – not to other officers, not to the public and certainly not to the media. The hunt starts when something begins preying on people in Druid Hill Park. It continues when bodies drained of blood turn up throughout the city as another cop starts investigating Bianca. Finally, it culminates in a battle with an ages-old master vampire against whom the usual tactics and weapons are useless. Can Bianca prevail? She better, for if she loses, all of Baltimore loses.
