An evil being has been sealed away for centuries in a sarcophagus never meant to be opened, waiting patiently for his chance to rise again. Now, brought to the Egyptology Department of Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum, the seals and spells that imprisoned him chipped away from his discoverers, he has reached forth to claim the minds and souls of Toronto’s unsuspecting citizens. And only three people have any sense that something is wrong….
For Henry Fitzroy, it begins with terrifying images of the sun, a marker of death for a vampire. Fearing for his sanity, he turns to his sometimes-lover, private investigator Vicki Taylor, for help. As the two struggle to cope with Henry’s obsession, Vicki’s closest friend and former partner, Mike Celluci, is following up on two mysterious deaths at the museum, certain that a force from beyond the grave is responsible for everything.

I purchased all of the books in this series because they were recommended by a friend. What she failed to tell me was that she struggled through the narration. I really like the characters but if I see any more books narrated by this same person, I will not purchase them, period.
Love the characters and the variety of villians in the stories.
I love Vicky's mother. She lends a sense of normalcy to Vicky's abnormal world
I wanted to listen to the story but not to the reader
