Summer begins, and law student Maryanne Wells flees to Dallas, Texas. She desperately wants to escape the memory of the terrible choice she made last year, when a clan of vampires branded Maryanne their newest human slave. Maryanne hopes she'll be safe working in a big city law firm, but the vampires are one step ahead of her. There's something they want Maryanne to find. Between the bright city lights, steamy jazz, and soaring glass towers, a dark secret waits. The secret's lingered for decades, ever since President John F. Kennedy was murdered on a Dallas street. Now it threatens to explode and rip the city apart. The vampires want Maryanne to capture the secret in their name, but if Maryanne can find strength to defy them, she will put the city's ghosts to rest and hold back the vampires' bloody power. Summer in Dallas brings a shattered heroine the chance to rescue a city and save her soul. As Book 2 of the Undead Bar Association series, Shadowed Demise fills the space between parts 1 and 2 of Book 1 - Matriculated Death, answering readers' burning questions about that fatal summer in Dallas.
