In the explosive conclusion to the vampire series begun with 13 Bullets, heroine Laura Caxton and her long-time nemesis, vampire Justinia Malvern, finally clash in a decisive - and bloody - showdown. Laura Caxton's battles against vampire Justinia Malvern have cost her everything - the lives of her friends and family, her freedom . . . and perhaps even her humanity. But even now, reduced to a solitary existence as a wanted fugitive, Laura's not through fighting. In fact, she's got a plan - a plan that will force Malvern to come to her and allow the two enemies to face off one last time. The ever-wily Malvern has plans of her own, though . . . plans that involve Laura's few remaining friends, a battalion of cops and an army of half-dead slaves.
