Telluride, Colorado is a quaint 1890s silver-mining boomtown that skiers and movie stars have returned to prosperity. When a young Hispanic woman is found dead in Town Park, Dr. Scarlet Geary is mystified by the fact that the body is drained of blood yet there is no identifiable wound. It is acting town marshal Solomon Byrne's job to investigate. When a second dead woman is found, also bled out yet woundless, Byrne realizes the deaths will continue unless whomever is responsible is stopped. Is a vampire loose in Telluride? Byrne does not believe in vampires. Is the killer a psychopath who has devised a way drain blood from women without a wound to be found during autopsy? Dr. Scarlet Geary does not believe in lethal events that leave behind no forensic evidence. Complicating the attraction Byrne and Scarlet feel for one another is the fact she is dating the only person in Telluride with a connection to both dead women. Attorney David Parker is a former concert pianist and wealthy art collector. Parker is a man with too many accomplishments to be idling away his time in the little town beneath Bridal Veil Falls, Byrne thinks. Something about Parker does not add up. As dangerous as Parker is, if he is the one behind the killings, there is someone else in Telluride even vampire would fear. A third woman's body is found... Bram Stoker Award-nominated writer Michael Romkey, author of the much-imitated cult-classic, "I, Vampire," returns with the first in a new series. Smart, character-driven storytelling combining horror, romance and mystery.
