Withrow Surrett has two big problems: a vigilante and a villain who keep getting in his way as he searches the small Southern city of Durham, North Carolina, for a vampire who shouldn't be there. Throw in Withrow's mad cousin Roderick, a coven of technopagans, neighborhood kids who stay up late to watch the bogeyman walk down their street, a quest for revenge, hidden history and an unexpected acquaintance from the past and Withrow's having a hell of a time as the self-proclaimed boss of all the vampires around.

Withrow finds himself chasing - and chased - down dark alleys, up suburban streets and across ivied campus quads in pursuit of hidden truths and flamboyant foes. Confronting feelings he hasn't experienced in decades, Withrow is forced to question the life he's made for himself. They say no man is an island but can a vampire spend forever alone? Is it possible Withrow has even less control over the world around him than he thought?

In DEAL WITH THE DEVIL, Withrow tackles all this with his signature dark humor and readiness to fight.
