A television news reporter in Columbus, Ohio, Elizabeth is covering the horrific murders of three prostitutes and trying to track down leads to the killer. Her uncle, Bob St. James, is the police investigator assigned to the cases and his frustration with the impossible forensic evidence and lack of leads is matched by his growing fear for his niece. His concern grows when she meets Shane, a private investigator, whose involvement in the cases is suspect. And Shane does have secrets to hide, the primary ones that he is Kindred, a vampire who was once a man, and that it is a fellow Kindred who is slaughtering the woman of Columbus. Shane has been sent to stop the Kindred, but as his investigation delves deeper into the murders he greatly fears that this isolated incident is really the first salvo of a new war being waged between good and evil.
