    The New York Times–bestselling author of The Undead continues the nail-biting story of a reluctant vampire fighting to save what’s left of his humanity.   Once a surgeon, Michael Bowman is now working the night shift at a convenience store in Dallas, a job with perfect hours for a vampire. After being turned by his friend Adam four months ago, he has struggled with his hunger, sometimes killing to satisfy his endless needs. His already thin bond with his wife, a homicide detective, is starting to fray. And Adam—enslaved by his evil, bloodsucking master—has become nothing more than a vicious pet.   At his wit’s end, Mike is approached by the Society, a group of “civilized” vampires, who promise him a life without killing—and help in saving Adam and himself from the monster bent on destroying his own bloodline. But it soon becomes clear to Mike that the Society is not what it seems. And what promises to be a refuge is in fact a cage that is closing in around him . . .  Praise for The Undead   “Fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary . . . a five-star winner. I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want it to end. Absolutely, do NOT let this one get away!” —P. N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories   “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [a] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles.NET

A jogger in El Paso. A pastor in Louisiana. Across the South and Southwest, middle-aged men are bursting into flames.    In the Office of Environmental Hazards, one man is on the case.
