A fanged foe is threatening Venice Beach. Can the McAfee twins stop him before he drains the city dry? Crime-fighting sisters Kerry and Terry McAfee are used to nabbing killers while wearing high heels. But when their pal Darby Applewhite--a.k.a. Ephemera, Queen of the Undead--hires them to work crowd control at the annual Venice Goth Parade, they find themselves sporting black jumpsuits and white makeup instead. Ephemera plans to promote the opening of the highly anticipated Dark Arts Galley by popping out of a coffin just as the guests are brought inside. But when the coffin lid rises, she pitches forward onto the street--and Kerry and Terry are shocked to discover that the Queen of the Undead is in fact dead after all!
Suddenly the parade of harmless misfits is transformed into a stream of potential suspects, and it's up to the twins to find their friend's killer. Soon they're plunged into a nefarious world that includes dentists specializing in prosthetic fangs and a goth cult led by a thug with a forked tongue. Will threats scrawled on their Harley in blood and amorous advances from sexy Detective John Boatwright derail the twins from getting their ghoul? Not bloody likely.
