Dire Straits Summary

Bo Blackman is a rookie private investigator working for the London based firm of Dire Straits. She doesn't often get triber-based assignments, which is just as well. Vampires and daemons don't interest her as much as humans do. However, when she has to serve a summons on a dodgy daemon called Devlin O'Shea and she ends up saving his life instead of being framed for his murder, her life takes a shocking turn for the worse. And when the vampire Families start involving themselves too, Bo no longer knows where to turn.

    With the dust still settling from the brutal attack on the Agathos court and Rogue's school, Bo Blackman is forced to live with her new-found status as a celebrity. She's still determined, however, to track down those responsible - and to solve the mystery of Tobias Renfrew, the daemon billionaire who disappeared over fifty years ago. Her investigations will lead her to places as far removed as a military base and the sinister Black Market. One thing is for sure - once Bo's done, nothing will ever be the same again.

    It's no more Miss Nice Vampire. Bo has turned her back on everything that's familiar and is now working for X, the dangerous Kakos daemon who demands that his identity be kept a secret. She's prepared to do just about anything to clean the streets of London of its crime, and she's no longer sure if she cares who gets hurt in the process. However, the vampire Families aren't going to be that easy to ignore. Lord Medici is continuing with his cold-blooded power bid while Michael is determined not to let Bo forget him.

    Smoke is still rising from the brutal and unnecessary destruction of the five vampire families...and Bo is in hiding. She won't be able to keep herself away for long, however.

And then there's the small matter of bitter revenge to consider, too.
