A very exciting first-in-series! Jane Yellowrock is a rather ambiguous character, and tough. She also has her "soft" side, but it's very carefully guarded. She has 10-days to hunt down a rogue vampire (will lose her bonus if it takes longer), and uses her unique skills to do so, with overly curious folks tracking her as well. The action is fast and interesting. The book's pace is just right, and the characters are well-developed and interesting, without being clear-cut good/bad-guys. Looking forward to her next case!
