Ms. Rhonda Mackenzie wants vampire executioner Anita Blake to find the vampire that has bitten her daughter two times and kill it. If she is bitten three times she will become a vampire, which is what the daughter wants, because she will lose one leg, perhaps two if she doesn’t change over. Anita asks the Master of the City, Jean-Claude if he will help her find the vampire. After not seeing him for a long time because she was learning to control her powers, Anita realizes her feelings for him have not changed.
