Lilly Edmonds has her work cut out for her as she finds herself protecting more than the werewolf Paul. On a visit to her old friend, Baxter, she finds that the undead have risen against him and taken him as a slave. Now her friends and she must find out the who and why of Baxter’s problems before he grows a pair of fangs.
Their search leads them across the city and into the nightlife of the Underground where the living dead have lively parties. The trail grows as hot and cold as the zombie officer they discover, a man of impeccable duty but with the reporter Pippin on his tail.
Together they find trouble and a deeper, more terrible secret than they could have imagined. It’s a secret that could expose the world to more than just blackmail, but to a vampiric hunger that won’t be stopped, sunrise or no sunrise.
