Publisher's Summary

It's frustrating for local law enforcement to come up against a piece of scum like Newton Glover. He's dirty as hell, everyone knows that--breaks into and vandalizes his neighbors' homes; cheats and steals from everyone; folks suspect he deals drugs and porn. He's even killed a man and gotten away with it. He gets away with all of it, hinting that he has a secret government background and that he's "protected" by the Powers That Be. Glover may finally have gone too far.He's suspected of kidnapping a young teenage boy to use for child porn and a pedophile sex-ring.

There's no proof, but this time, Albuquerque police are determined to nail Glover to the wall. Lee Nez, a Navajo state police officer, and Diane Lopez, an FBI agent, go undercover in Glover's trailer park. Lee and Diane find that their growing attraction for each other is heightened by their posing as husband and wife, but do not allow that to distract them from their mission. They soon learn that not long ago, Glover's neighbors tried to take the law into their own hands--they dragged Glover from his home and beat him to death, leaving him in a shallow grave.

To everyone's shock, a few days later Glover reappeared with not a mark on him. Lee and Diane are no strangers to the supernatural--Lee is a Navajo vampire and Diane's last FBI partner was killed by a werewolf. Whatever Glover is, they'll deal with it.When a second child goes missing and clues link her to Glover, Lee and Diane know they are running out of time. Glover may be some kind of un-dead, but soon those children will be really dead, or worse.

Kept Me On The Edge Of My Seat

I usually don't review books but I REALLY loved this one! I wish Audible had the rest of the Thurlos' books here as well!

This audiobook kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I listened to it. I usually only listen at my studio when painting, but this one, I brought home to continue listening, it was so good!

I totally enjoyed it!

Loved that Native vampire cop!

Always a huge fan of the Thurlos and thoroughly enjoyed this story due to the main character being Native and part vampire who uses his supernatural talent to aid he and his awesome, mortal female partner to take down the bad guys. Kevin Foley's Ace narrative skills make me choose many audio books just by seeing that he is the narrator.

Good but not as good as the Ella Clah series

Would you listen to Surrogate Evil again? Why?

They (Aimee and David) wrote a series a few years ago the Ella Clah Series, it was excellent this is just OK, if you like Vampire type books it's interesting.. but personally I liked the characters in the Ella Clan series a lot more.I purchased this one when it first came out but don't know yet if I will purchase the others in this series.. I did enjoy the Narrator Kevin Foley, he has a pleasant voice and it was easy to listen to.. I wish they would put the Ella Clan series in audio, I for one would buy that series right away.

What Happened???

Foul language in any book is hard to listen to but trying to get through this book was excruciating. Every detail was over-explained as though the reader is lacking common sense. I don't think "Nancy Drew" ever had to talk out every nuance of a plot like the Thurlos did with this one. I liked the first two books of this series but maybe Lee Nez needs to retire.
