Two men engage in an altercation in a movie lobby. Later one of the men turns up dead in a New York City alley. But this is no ordinary murder. The deceased is a sex demon and his fellow combatant was the werewolf, Jean-Claude RouĂ©, fiancĂ© of Mark’s shape-shifter secretary. Now the werewolf is accused of his murder and faces a trial by before a supernatural tribunal. If Jean-Claude is convicted for causing this death it will mean his execution. This time however, Mark Julian is away on a personal investigation in Kenya so Tortego, the crafty vampire chief, goes to an unusual source to secure help. Using his powers as head of New York City’s supernatural community he appoints Mark’s human partner, Detective Vincent Pasquale, to be one of the three judges for Jean-Claude’s trial. Now Vinnie must not only fight to clear his friend, Jean-Claude, he must deal with his supernatural co-jurists: the werewolf Viola Lupa and the sex demon Dale Carter. Both of his companion judges are on record as sworn enemies of “any mixed supernatural mating.” Throw in a shifty shape shifter named Andelan Clarke, Ja-ne the original Oracle of Delphi and, a sexy TV newsman from the island of Guernsey who appears to be more interested in bedding Vinnie than nailing a story and it truly becomes “The Case No One Foretold!”

The four grey robed figures sat around the wooden circular desk in the darkened stone-carved room. In the center of the table only a flickering flame, held in a bronze bowl, gave off any light. The rough cold walls were bare, giving the place a rather sinister atmosphere. Three of them were men and one a woman.
“I fail to see how hiring another killer will solve the issue,” the woman sharply stated in annoyance while staring over at the man seated across from her. “I mean the last set of vampire murders hardly solved the problem did it? In fact, that spectacular failure may have potentially cast a rather unwelcome light upon our activities.”

“I have to agree that your hiring another assassin to remove the persons on your new hit list was hardly inventive,” the tall man next to her added as he stared at the same person to whom the woman had just spoken too. “Besides, was killing all those other vampires truly required?” He grumbled. From the tone of his voice it was clear that he too shared the woman’s irritation with the person opposite them.

The slightly built male individual to whom they had addressed their criticisms said nothing for a few seconds. From his facial expression however, it was obvious to them all that he was inwardly seething over their comments. After a minute however, his face lost all outward hint of his internal anger. “I think disposing of those vampires who sat on that commission was unavoidable.” He calmly replied. “They knew too much about our plans, or else they had too many suspicions based upon what they inadvertently discovered in the records.” He gave them a chilling look; grinned at the discomfort it gave to the others in the room then continued speaking.

When not seeking out interesting new locales for his books he can be found dinning with friends and enjoying all the city he adores has to offer.

Though he has not yet met the supernatural denizens of NYC, he does hope too one day. And yes, there is a “letter Lounge” albeit under a different name.
