"Saul’s arresting narrative voice and the inclusion of real historical events will please series fans." Publishers Weekly
Saul’s life literally changed when Al Capone murdered him, and he was reborn as a vampire. But being a vampire isn’t what he expected, and an offer from Capone to answer Saul’s many questions about being one of the living dead comes at a price Saul is unwilling to pay.
Saul Imbierowicz had led a very unremarkable life until he was murdered by Al Capone and was then reborn as a vampire. Now Saul works for Eliot Ness, trying to take down Chicago’s most dangerous gangster. But only Saul, Ness, and Saul’s new partner, Agent Christian Wright, know the true danger that Capone represents.
As a vampire, Saul is stronger, faster, and his wounds heal rapidly, but he is also constantly fatigued, and he has a million questions about his new “life”. An offer from Al Capone to answer these questions comes with a price that Saul is unwilling to pay and, when the mysterious Mr. Brown reappears, Saul learns that there is a war brewing that will put any spat between human gangsters to shame.
While Saul struggles to keep himself from becoming a monster like Capone, he and Christian must work together, a task which is easier said than done. Christian sees Saul as an abomination, an affront to God, and would rather stake Saul than work with him, but understands that a war between vampires would be disastrous. This fledgling partnership must succeed, or Chicago may pay the price of its failure.
