We vampires don't fear the sun. We walk among you, picking off clueless humans. I, myself, have killed both good people who were cared about and people who had no business enjoying life on Earth. I kept to myself until I fell in love with a nice girl, Norine. I keep her ignorant of my true nature. Like a rare heirloom tomato, I see her as worth cultivating rather than eating.
When my girlfriend Norine's house is broken into and the police don't move on the case fast enough, I leave a trail of bodies on my way to confront Mr. C, one of Atlanta's most ruthless crime lords. Impressed at my bloodthirsty methodology, Mr. C offers me a job--in exchange, Norine gets to keep breathing. Stuck, I'm now a thug-for-hire out to take down Mr. C's enemies.
In the dark underbelly of this city, gangs struggle to control the same turf, supplying live, warm bodies for a vampire-controlled mail-order food service. This "service" threatens my Norine's life. If I don't stop the human trafficking, then she may never be safe; and if I do, then vampires all over the South will be out for my blood.
