Chapter 1

My name is Victoria Milford.  According to The Sunset Heat, a local newsletter, I'm "The 24 year old, dark haired, sexy part owner, of the Sunset Strip nightclub; ‘Climaxes’."

We serve drinks and we have live entertainment on the weekends.  On weeknights, 25 year old Harry Edelstein is in the D/J booth.

Around 9 P.M. on a Tuesday night, business was slow.  Less than half the tables were occupied.  The recorded music blared, but not loud enough to drown out any conversation.

I was seated at the bar, going over some paperwork, when a guy sat on the stool beside me.

"Evening Victoria."  He spoke cheerfully.  "Can I buy you something to drink?"

He was Jake; a mean looking dude in his late 20s, wearing a black leather jacket.  He had a firm build and curly, light colored hair.  He'd been showing up almost every night, for the past two weeks, with a ditzy blonde chic named Roxanna.  She also had a mean look to her, but neither of them had caused any trouble.  Tonight he was alone.

"Thank you Jake."  I told him, "Maybe you haven't heard, but I'm part owner of the Club.  I'm the one who buys drinks for customers.  Not the other way around."

"Then I'll have my usual."

I said, "That was slick, but you're the one who has to pay for the drinks first."

Then I asked, "So where's your girlfriend, what's her name?  Roxanna?"

"She's on ice."

"'On ice'?"  I said scornfully, "You mean you haven't broken up with her, but you're now on the prowl?"

"That's partly correct."

"What part?"

"When I said 'She's on ice', I meant that literally.  Right now she's hanging upside down and naked, inside a freezer, with the lights off."

I laughed.  "If that's what dating you leads to, forget it.  I don't mind a little bit kinky, but risking death..."

"That wasn't a joke Vick."

"Yeah.  Right."

"You see, our employer doesn't take any lip, from any of their employees."

"Don't you think that's kind of excessive?  Every now and then, I have to give somebody a good talking to, and that's enough."

"I said I wasn’t joking.  We are employed by the Legal Department of Vidamort Corp.  Our employer enforces Company rules, in a way that we employees never forget."

I said, "Legal Department?  You don't look like a lawyer to me; and Roxanna just doesn't seem like someone who could pass any kind of a bar exam."

"Roxy and I aren't lawyers."  He told me, "She and I enforce company policy, in a way that our clients never forget."

I said, "Enforcers?"

He said, "Vidamort Corp. wants me to explain Company policy to you Ms. Milford, in a way you'll never forget."

I looked at Jake's face.  That night he looked more than mean.  He looked dangerous.

I told him, "You get out of here right now, or I'll call the police."

"Go ahead."  He told me, "I'm sure they'll be interested to learn about the time, when you pretended to be pregnant by a married man, who you had a fling with.  You then got him to pay for a fake abortion, along with hush money.  The law calls that fraud and blackmail, for which you can do an unhealthy amount of jail time."

I told him, "You can't prove that."

"Vidamort Corp. can, along with providing evidence of your involvement in a murder."

"Murder?"

"Maybe more than one."

"What's this all about?"

"We know for a fact, that you allow gambling and drug dealing inside this club, with you getting a percentage of every transaction."

"Oh I see." I said, "And your employer wants a percentage too."

"Meet me outside, in the parking lot, in 15 minutes," he said, "and be sure you come alone."

15 minutes later I was out in the parking lot, with a loaded pistol in my handbag.  Jake stood beside a car, at the dark end of the parking lot, furthest from the street.  I came over to him.

He opened the front door on the passenger side, and told me, "Get in."

"Forget it Mr. Tough Guy.  I'm not getting in a car with you."

"All right cautious lady."  He shut the door. "Stand there."

"Good enough."  I told him.  "Now tell me, what's the deal?"

"You're a very bad girl Victoria."  He said, "I come from Sangreville, which is full of very bad girls."

"Sangreville?  Vampire Town?"

"Now you’ve probably heard the saying, ‘If you’re a bad girl, the ‘something’ will eat you’; and do you know what happens to very bad girls in Sangreville?"

"I've heard that the ‘something’ that kills and eats them is vampires."

He said, "Exactly."

Suddenly his arms were around me.  He pulled me up against himself, and put his cold mouth against my neck.  He had a pair of sharp, heavy fangs, which he stabbed inside my neck.

Then my mind vanished.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

salma elsamy: it's really awesome , and I really like the whole idea of the story . I also love how simple the vocabularies because English is my second language and the simplicity of the story is great for me . And I will definitely buy it if it's published.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

miriamf: I loved this novel. It defies classification as it is at once a romance story and gothic thriller. We meet Sachiko, a young Japanese woman who has lost her British husband and child to the tsunami which struck her village in 2011. Sachiko cannot find them and seeks out a new existence for herse...

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

Dina Husseini: This story is wonderful. It made me quiver and shake and always turn around and see if there is anything behind me. I have enjoyed reading this story. It is marvelously written and you can feel the fear in the story. This one is unique in itself that it does not need any sequel. A...MA...ZING!!

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

Pilleip: It is one of the most unique stories I have recently read. Kind of a mix of vampires and Dan Brown. Hours of first class entertsinment. A must read. I hope it will get a sequel and that jappens soon.
