Mr. Rook is a desperate man - his government department will soon be a casualty to cutbacks unless he's able to do something - so he's off to China to find private investors. While he's away, he needs the Honolulu Heights residents to look after his special charge, werewolf Bobby. Bobby's been locked up in the archive for decades and is consequently more naïve and socially awkward than Tom ever was. For once, someone is in Tom's thrall. Hal's also entrusted with 'sorting out' vampire Crumb's rampage. Alex reckons this is posh boy talk for putting a stake in his heart but Hal's determined to rehabilitate the wayward vampire. When Hal loses faith in Crumb's, and indeed his, ability to reform, it's up to Alex to prove that it can be done. Even if that means going on a date with a repugnant vampire.
