“This book, my dear readers, is mind candy. Delicious, lovely, marvelous mind candy. Addictive mind candy. A snickers bar for the soul.” —Amazon reviewer

“The world of mystery writers just became richer with this talented author’s Samantha Moon series. Author J.R. Rain has developed a fearsome character, who, in spite of the vampire attack that completely rocked her world, is quite believable.” —Amazon reviewer

“Move over, Harry Dresden, Samantha Moon is on the case. No shiny vampires here. Just Sam Moon, private eye, and her knack for seeing what others miss. Yeah, she’s a vampire, but first and foremost she is Samantha Moon. She’s a character that grabbed me from the first page and kept me engrossed until the end. The pacing is spot on, the dialog is film noir perfect, the characters rich and skillfully drawn.” —Amazon reviewer

“I devoured this book, and had to move onto the next one. The story is about a newly turned vampire, Samantha Moon, who, on the surface, appears to be your everyday soccer mom, wife and private investigator.” —Amazon reviewer


Chapter One


I was folding laundry in the dark and watching Judge Judy rip this guy a new asshole when the doorbell rang. I flipped down a pair of Oakley wrap-around sunglasses and, still holding a pair of little Anthony’s cotton briefs in one hand, opened the front door. The light, still painfully bright, poured in from outside. I squinted behind my shades and could just make out the image of a UPS deliveryman. And, oh, what an image it was. As my eyes adjusted to the light, a hunky guy with tan legs and beefy arms materialized through the screen door before me. He grinned at me easily, showing off a perfect row of white teeth. Spiky yellow hair protruded from under his brown cap.


The guy should have been a model, or at least my new best friend. “Mrs. Moon?” he asked. His eyes seemed particularly searching and hungry, and I wondered if I had stepped onto the set of a porno movie. Interestingly, a sort of warning bell sounded in my head. Warning bells are tricky to discern, and I automatically assumed this one was telling me to stay away from Mr. Beefy, or risk damaging my already rocky marriage. “You got her,” I said easily, ignoring the warning bells. “I’ve got a package here for you.” “You don’t say.” “I’ll need for you to sign the delivery log.” He held up an electronic gizmo-thingy that must have been the aforementioned delivery log. “I’m sure you do,” I said, and opened the screen door and stuck a hand out. He looked at my very pale hand, paused, and then placed the electronic thing-a-majig in it. As I signed it, using a plastic-tipped pen, my signature appeared in the display box as an arthritic mess. The deliveryman watched me intently through the screen door. I don’t like to be watched intently. In fact, I prefer to be ignored and forgotten. “Do you always wear sunglasses indoors?” he asked casually, but I sensed his hidden question: And what sort of freak are you? “Only during the day. I find them redundant at night.” I opened the screen door again and exchanged the log doohickey for a small square package. “Thank you,” I said. “Have a good day.” He nodded and left, and I watched his cute little buns for a moment longer, and then shut the solid oak door completely. Sweet darkness returned to my home. I pulled up the sunglasses and sat down in a particularly worn dining room chair.


Someday I was going to get these things re-upholstered. The package was heavily taped, but a few deft strokes of my painted red nail took care of all that. I opened the lid and peered inside. Shining inside was an ancient golden medallion. An intricate Celtic cross was engraved across the face of it, and embedded within the cross, formed by precisely cut rubies, were three red roses. In the living room, Judge Judy was calmly explaining to the defendant what an idiot he was. Although I agreed, I turned the TV off, deciding that this medallion needed my full concentration. After all, it was the same medallion worn by my attacker six years earlier.
