Killing Dalton’s friend is not the way to get his attention.
Strange events bring Earth Ward Inspector Dalton Kingston and his team to southern Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Unfortunately, it’s to investigate the murder of his friend: Earth Ward Inspector Sean Chalmers and his team.
One concern is that everything points to Lightville, a lightmire stronghold. Lightmires are nonhumans who eat diseases and heal people, are natural enemies of vampires, and typically do not involve themselves in events. Now they’re at the center of a murder investigation.
Another issue is that Sean’s team had been investigating strange occurrences, and his notes on the case were stolen.
The nonhuman world’s eyes are on Dalton’s team, and the Earth Ward’s reputation is at stake. Dalton will do what he’s always done and rise to the occasion, displaying one of his core attributes—resilience.
