DJ Jesseray, a Saint Paul homicide detective, has it all: a cool job, a great house, and a really hot fiancé. Then one night she confronts a huge tiger to save a child, and, with a single deep bite, her life is changed forever. She wakes to find herself labeled not only a shapeshifter but also a threat to national security. Disbelieving, she watches her FBI fiancé, Ryan, stand by while the authorities have their way, initially. Determined to control her own fate, DJ engineers a getaway. The next few days are a frantic race to evade federal incarceration and cope with a heretofore unknown supernatural world. She must also adjust to what it means to be a special brand of shapeshifter and wrestle with power brokers at the local, state and national level. Once the authorities fully comprehend the body count behind a conspiracy of silence, the stakes grow mountainously high. But DJ dares not waver because, in just two more nights, she could lose a loved one to vampires....and her own life.
