His family was brutally slaughtered by deranged thugs. Now former actor Ryne Lanark is channeling his explosive rage and extraordinary talents in a bold new direction - as a Chicago city cop. Using his stunning mastery of disguise, he threads his way unnoticed through a seamy nightworld of killers, punks, and con men. A tortured loner, a relentless crusader, Lt. Ryne Lanark is on the streets, waging his own personal war of retribution on society's scum-stretching the boundaries of the law to its legal limits...and beyond.
Members of a sinister "rich kid" sex-and-drug cult have begun turning up dead, with every drop of their blue blood carefully drained from their ravaged bodies. But the killer has made a big mistake. He's disposing of the corpses in Ryne Lanark's precinct. Since the murder of his loved ones, the haunted policeman's been taking all homicides very personally. And now he's willing to sacrifice anything, including his own life, to make sure an all-too-human vampire receives a lethal transfusion of justice - Lanark-style.
