What do MI5 bosses do when one of their officers is involved in a fatal shooting, opening the agency to the risk of coming under yet another media and political spotlight? They send him to an outpost known as Red Station. It's remote, it's uncomfortable ... and it's a home for washed-out spooks. All they tell Harry is to keep his head down and do his job. What they don't tell him is that the Russians are coming ... and that Harry won't be coming back

Meena Harper, forced to write about vampires even though she doesn't believe in them, falls in love with Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for. The problem is: Lucien's already dead! And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare
