Moonlight-dappled water, a luxurious boat and a handsome man in the next slip. Life at the South Seattle Marina is heavenly. Georgia Bellair and her four-year-old daughter Abby have been reunited after a tough couple of years and it's time for a few days' relaxation before moving into their new home together. Georgia would never have gone there though if she'd realized a cult was operating on the calm waters of Puget Sound and the leader thinks drinking Abby's innocent blood will make him a full chiang-shih, a Chinese vampire. Bounty hunter Yun MacCready is investigating a series of break-ins reportedly caused by a bail jumper at the marina. He doesn't expect to get involved with a beautiful blonde, much less work to rescue her kidnapped daughter from a vampire cult. Nor could he have expected this family's complicated past would come back to haunt them in the form of gang lord Oscar Nesell. Evil is storming the gates of heaven.
