Five years ago, life in the United States changed forever when swarms of vampires overran the country in a war that dwarfed the carnage of the American Civil War. Many died, others were turned into vampires, and the survivors were rounded up and sent to massive internment camps for the next three years.
Five years after the war, ex-cop turned private investigator Charlie Welles is the day-side investigator for Night and Day Investigations. His partner, Joshua Thomas, a vampire and Charlie’s trusted friend, handles the night business.
When a seventeen-year-old runaway Welles is tracking is found drained of all her blood in an Uptown dumpster, it seems like the sad ending of another vampire-related missing person case. But after his partner is murdered and the bodies, human and vampire, start to pile up, Welles discovers a web of police corruption, organized crime and dark medical experiments in a case that may cost him far more than his life.
To find who killed his partner, and why, Charlie Welles must struggle to find elusive truth in the darkness of Night and the light of Day.
