When Tom proposes that they go camping, along with Tom's best friend, Joey, she's expecting a fun weekend on the lake. What happens when the fun turns out to be different than she expected?
Can she find a killer in a town where the basest desires are allowed to run free? There are zombies in the Dead Zone and Juliana Norris is sent to take care of the problem. And for there to be zombies, there had to be bodies. When vampires are found to be the culprits, Juliana is sent undercover in the red light district of Kansas City. Lying to her mate, Thomas Kendrick, isn’t something she wants to do, but she’s in another vampire’s territory and Thomas would not be pleased. Besides, she’s more than capable of doing the job and she needs to prove it to everyone. Most of all herself. Charles Morgan is in control of the Kansas City area, making a rich living off his various enterprises.

More victims turn up and the Agency is positive they’ve got their man, but Juliana is not so sure.
When the Agency refuses to listen, she reluctantly turns to Thomas for help. He intervenes but finds Juliana unaware of the danger she is in and discovers she may just be too deep for him to save.

El padre Pío de Pietrelcina nació en 1887 y murió en 1968 en el convento capuchino de San Giovanni Rotondo. Allí dedicó medio siglo casi exclusivamente a confesar a decenas de miles de personas que acudían a verle atraídas por su fama de santidad y por los numerosos milagros y hechos extraordinarios que rodearon su vida. Sobre todo, los estigmas, que recibió siendo muy joven y le hicieron vivir en su propia carne la Pasión de Cristo. Juan Pablo II lo elevó a los altares en 2002 ante la mayor asistencia jamás registrada en una canonización. Y desde entonces su nombre, que ya era venerado masivamente en Italia, se ha extendido por toda la tierra. “Daré más guerra muerto que vivo”, profetizó el santo. Este libro, con sus impactantes historias de fe y conversión, es una buena prueba de ello.
