Formerly an agent in the dreaded Romanian secret police, Aldo Striescu is determined to find and destroy wealthy Jamey Whistler, who is secretly a vampire and who can only be saved by Selene, High Priestess of Wicca

Blackwell North Amer
For the past thirty years Selene Weiss has lived her life according to Wiccan tradition - ever since the wide-eyed Barnard student from Ohio was initiated into the sisterhood of powerful women. But now, just as her seventeen-year-old goddaughter, Martha, is about to be brought into the fold and her own crisis of faith has kicked in, Selene experiences a rare dream of foreboding. Jamey Whistler - debonair, Oxford-educated secret vampire, and the enduring love of her life - is in mortal danger.
Summoning her powers - Wiccan and otherwise - to save the man she gave up for a higher calling, Selene embarks on a journey that takes her across three continents and makes her the quarry of Aldo Striescu. A charming, cold-blooded assassin with twin passions for Maria Callas and fire, Striescu has taken the art of blood-drinking - and murder - to chilling new heights. It is Striescu who forces Selene to confront her own mortality and life choices as he mercilessly hunts her and Whistler down. But it isn't until Martha's young life hangs in the balance that Selene comes up with a daring scheme that pits feminine will against virile sadism... even as it threatens to expose Whistler's haunting filial secret and destroy Selene herself.
Never has the world of night come so palpably, sensually, terrifying alive. Never have the age-old struggles between women and men, life and death, and good and evil been pulled off in such enthralling high style. Moving from the scenic hills of northern California to the smoldering ruins of a Caribbean rain forest to the deepening shadows of a decaying London mansion, this is a lushly evocative, exquisitely crafted novel of sin and surrender, revenge and redemption.
