Musings of a Postmodern Vampire
Jack King is a handsome, crafty vampire who tries to maintain his identity in a time when the daily erosion of privacy is the norm. He has managed to survive a changing world for decades and now must face an age of rapid globalization, fleeting romance, and social networks. And just when his personal life takes an unexpected-and pleasant-turn, his employer sends him and his co-worker, Ted, to Hong Kong to deal with a big client's issues. Unfortunately, the problem is more complicated-and dangerous-than they anticipated. Things with Jack's business trip begin to spiral out of control when Ted, Jack's co-worker and translator, goes missing. Jack is about to discover that his powerful adversaries play for keeps...and they play for blood. His blood. Jack King's true nature as an American vampire has been revealed to his diabolical adversaries-a group of evil scientists who want to learn what makes vampires tick. They will stop at nothing to violate his very flesh in order to gain the secrets of his biology-and create a drug that could change medical history...and the future of mankind. Now betrayed and gravely wounded, Jack goes on the run in China with the help of a mysterious group of Chinese vampires. Thrust into their unfamiliar culture and running from exploitative humans, Jack walks a fine line between his assimilation and loyalty to his human friends, and his growing knowledge of who he is, what he is, and what he must do to protect those he loves most...
