Talia Vann is private detective who specializes in supernatural cases, she also just happens to be a thousand year old werewolf. Her agency, Night's End, is made up of herself, fellow wolf Alaric, and three vampires: Kyle, Cara and Jack. The Chief of police calls Talia and her crew in on his newest murder case, which involves a creature who is preying on the O'Brien family. The creature is systematically slaughtering the eldest men in the family, one at a time. The first victim is Colin O'Brien who's body is found amidst numerous empty alcohol bottles. There are no solid clues to be found, other than the sound of a woman's screams and a trail of blood on the ceiling...
This is the second book in the Scepter Series, which finds Talia landing into more hot water than usual. When the dust clears, will San Francisco still be standing?†
The door with its little brass plate reading, James O'Rielly, loomed in front of me. Normally I donít knock
on the chiefís door, I always burst right in. But then again, Iím usually really pissed off when I come down here. Itís always his fault too, he arrests my team and I have to come down here and raise hell about it.
Just once Iíd like to do some role reversal. I could arrest his people then he could come down to my office and raise hell with me. Yeah, that probably wouldnít work out too well, but it would be more fun.
Well, more fun for me at any rate. He probably wouldn't like it all that well,
