Detective Danny Mancini is on a case, following a murder suspect. When he catches him, he finds out that the perp isn’t even human: he’s a 200 year old rogue vampire!

The department doesn’t believe him, and puts him on early retirement, despite his many years of service to the Chicago Police Department, which sends him into a downward spiral.

Two years later, Danny gets an invitation from the beautiful, young and very attractive Detective Angelica Cross to join a secret branch of the FBI to help her track down Vincent, the wayward vamp.

But renegade werewolves, meddling immortal witches and Danny’s strange visions of a life lived a century ago with Angelica make things more difficult than it should be.

***Katie – #NerdGirlKtLbLy’s  Review***
Danny Mancini is a detective. And a good one at that. He’s trying to find a serial killer who’s been draining the blood from his victims when he finally comes across him. Unfortunately bullets don’t work on him because he’s a 200 year old vampire. Danny gets knocked out and wakes up in the hospital talking about the paranormal and when he goes and explains what happened to him, they put him on early retirement. Two years go by and Detective Angelica Cross knocks on his door saying that not only does she believe him, but that there is a whole part of the FBI that is dedicated to hunting down paranormal creatures. Danny goes to work with Angelica, and is a little unsure of himself and unsure of the werewolf in charge of weapons and training, but Angelica makes work interesting and fun. Angelica loves working with Danny, but she has to be careful because she has a lot of secrets that may just make Danny run for the hills.
I really enjoyed this story. It was fast paced, funny, and such a simple fast read. All the revelations that came about were really good. There were some moments that were a bit predictable, but I still totally want to continue on with the series and see what’s in store next.
