Wichita, 1920s - Bootleggers, speakeasies, vampires - oh my! Jake Mathisen survived the Great War only to return home to find there's little work for a pilot and, worse, the vampires of Europe have been emigrating to the States. Working for bootlegger Toliver Cain means good money, access to a sterling airplane, and enough free hooch that he doesn't have to think too much about the past. Until Cain dispatches him to drive Miss Vera Avery to a vampire house. The one job that Jake regrets, and the one that Cain uses to keep him close, involved the death of Vera Avery's father. And while Vera plays the wide-eyed ingenue, there's something hard inside of her. Could the blonde with the bright smile be as lethal as the vampires Jake's taking her to face and, if so, what's going to happen when she finds out what Jake's done?
