The Caithnesses are members of the Family, immortal vampires who wield secret power around the word, a family of aristocratic and highly intelligent vampires. Andrew Caithness is their candidate to rule America. Restraint is, however, always a Family characteristic and security is byword- a state of mind easily come by since twentieth-century Others refuse to believe in the supernatural. Only when Catriona, Andrew's niece, begins to fall genuinely in love with a New York Times political reporter is the Family's security and political ambition threatened.

With Baron Vengeous after the deadly armour of Lord Vile, and pretty much everyone out to kill Valkyrie, the daring detective duo face their biggest challenge yet. But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home…?
