Markie Maddenabout this book: It's a world a hundred years in the future where supernatural beings are known and (marginally) accepted by human society. But of course, they must suffer the same prejudice that plagues other minorities, and they struggle to prove themselves. The Undead Oath that is forced upon them before they can live and work among humans prohibits them from breaking any human laws, and that includes feeding on humans.
Along with the usual issue of human bigotry for minorities, there is also a criminal element as well, as there is among any group of people. In answer to this, the Dallas Police Department has organized an elite new squad of Undead detectives and officers, charged with investigating and solving crimes involving any species of Immortal. The new unit is headed up by veteran lieutenant Lacey Anderson, a Vampire with a violent past; her family coven was brutally murdered by a rogue pack of Werewolves 500 years ago. Her new second-in-command is Werewolf Colton Scarber, a descendant of the pack that killed Lacey's family. She is unaware of the connection at the beginning, but Colton is not, and the tension this creates when he's forced to work under her command is evident. When the truth finally emerges, can they learn to work together as partners must, or will the Undead Unit be doomed to failure?
A mysterious suspect and strange physical evidence will lead Lacey and Colton to solve a case spanning decades, and leave Lacey with no other choice than to trust her enemy when her very life is in danger!
This is book 1 in The Undead Unit Series, set in Dallas, Texas. The second book, Souls of the Reaper, is already in progress. There are at least 6 other book concepts for the series, and there's no way to know where these characters will take us!
