ImaJinn, Dec 2002, 13.00, 230 pp.
Michael is a three hundred and sixty year old vampire who works for The Circle, an organization of paranormal beings dedicated to destroying their evil kin. Nikki is a thrall, a being similar to a vampire without the need for blood. She and Michael are a couple in trouble because he wants to protect her and she wants to work with him for The Circle.
When Michael arrives home after an assignment, he finds that Nikki is not there, she has gone to help her partner in their private detective agency track down a killer who is abducting, torturing and killing women. When Michael arrives, they learn that the killer is a vampire out to settle some old scores from his high school days. Only through teamwork can this killer be stopped, but even working together that remains a dangerous proposition since he has targeted Nikki as one of his victims.
