FBI agent Diane Lopaz is called in to investigate an attack on Navajo State Patrolman Leonard Hawk. Unknown to her, Hawk is really part vampire Lee Nez. Lee is hunting a skinwalker—a Navajo witch and shapeshifter—who is hunting him. He is also on the trail of his old nemesis, Hans Gruber, the vampire that changed him back in 1945.

As for Hans, he is looking for the plutonium Lee was able to hide from him back then. Now Diane is getting too close to Lee for comfort. Can he share his secrets with her? If he does, will it get her killed as it did his wife? Once she knows, will she work with him to get Gruber? There's only one way to find out…

SECOND SUNRISE is the first in a new series featuring Lee Nez by the talented Thurlos team. I was eagerly looking forward to this new novel from them and was not disappointed. SECOND SUNRISE is a fantastic blend of reality and the supernatural. Lee Nez makes it easy to suspend doubt and believe in "skinwalkers" and "night walkers." My only complaint: having to wait for the next installment. (Nov., 384 pp., $24.95)
