Even vampire hunters should be allowed a break, but murder makes the French countryside less scenic.
Ravelle is looking forward to being back in France. All she wants is to have wine with her daughter-in-law, catch up with an old vampire acquaintance, and get closer to Yanis, who is a breath of fresh air to Ravelle. She is not looking forward to working, and a seasoned vampire hunter like Ravelle should be granted a simple, quiet vacation.
Yet the hunter soon smells murder on the air, and where there’s murder, there is a corpse, and where there's a tenderly wrapped corpse, there tends to be a crime, in Ravelle’s experience. So rather than pursuing wine, Ravelle will have to solve all the mummy's mysteries.
Yanis keeps vampiric company, and he is happy to do so, because more often than not, it beats human company. But even so, he doesn’t know where his life is going. When he meets Ravelle, he sees a new direction for himself, even if it means dealing with murder, attempted murder, and all the wickedness in between.
Ravelle is looking forward to a well deserved holiday, a little wine, a little fun, and an anticipated meeting with an old friend. Yet, as all things go, work interferes with it all.
