It's frustrating for local law enforcement to come up against a piece of scum like Newton Glover.  He's dirty as hell, everyone knows that--breaks into and vandalizes his neighbors' homes; cheats and steals from everyone; folks suspect he deals drugs and porn.  He's even killed a man and gotten away with it.  He gets away with all of it, hinting that he has a secret government background and that he's "protected" by the Powers That Be.  Glover may finally have gone too far.  He's suspected of kidnapping a young teenage boy to use for child porn and a pedophile sex-ring.  There's no proof, but this time, Albuquerque police are determined to nail Glover to the wall.  Lee Nez, a Navajo state police officer, and Diane Lopez, an FBI agent, go undercover in Glover's trailer park.  Lee and Diane find that their growing attraction for each other is heightened by their posing as husband and wife, but do not allow that to distract them from their mission.  They soon learn that not long ago, Glover's neighbors tried to take the law into their own hands--they dragged Glover from his home and beat him to death, leaving him in a shallow grave.  To everyone's shock, a few days later Glover reappeared with not a mark on him.  Lee and Diane are no strangers to the supernatural--Lee is a Navajo vampire and Diane's last FBI partner was killed by a werewolf.  Whatever Glover is, they'll deal with it.When a second child goes missing and clues link her to Glover, Lee and Diane know they are running out of time.  Glover may be some kind of un-dead, but soon those children will be really dead, or worse.

There were always DWI stops, roll-over accidents on the interstate, or calls from isolated sheriff's deputies to help break up a fight, back up the call on a robbery--or worse.Lee took a leisurely sip of coffee, enjoying the fact that he was off-duty now and there were still six and a half hours, give or take a few minutes, of nighttime left before sunlight became an issue for him. He looked across the table
