Going through a difficult recovery from a near-fatal clash with a sadistic gangster, Jack's unwillingly drawn into solving a brutal murder at the Nightcrawler Club. But that's nothing compared to the death sentence hanging over him. There's no escaping gangland "justice," especially when it comes from Whitey Kroun--a mob kingpin who can scare even a vampire!

Elrod: This one was very tough to write and Rox Conrad has my undying gratitude for being there with feedback and suggestions and lots of totally off-topic gab fests about Stargate SG-1, which kept me sane and producing more new words. Much of the difficulty for me was getting into Jack's mindset after what happened to him in the previous book. Anyone going through a horror like that, human or vampire, is going to suffer through major emotional repercussions.

Time and again I've compared writing to acting, to assuming a character. I'm generally a pretty cheerful sort, but Jack was in a very, very dark, very scary place in his head. I had to go with him into that darkness, and stay there for months at a time to see if he would ever find his way back again. It's a relief to me that the book's finished and going to print, allowing me to take a break from ...uhhh...well, I don't want to put any spoilers here!
