|Plot Summary of Blood Retribution|
Forge, Sept 2004, 23.95, 272 pp.
He is a nightwalker, a Navaho half vampire. He is also a New Mexico state police officer who is often teamed up with beautiful FBI agent Diane Lopez. Right now they are trying to infiltrate a smuggling ring made up of skinwalkers (Navaho witches) who can shape shift at night and still retain their ability to think like a human.
These smugglers known as the Silver Eagles go to Mexico in animal form, meet with their suppliers, and return with silver and turquoise for jewelry suppliers who get their products at black market prices. The two cops seek to arrest humans who are part of the smuggling ring and kill the shapeshifters so they no longer can carry out their evil plans. While Diane and Lee stalk the Silver Eagles, they are hunted by a vampire who wants to kill them because they murdered her nest including her husband and brother. They remain on guard at all times because beside each other they don't know who they can trust.
The authors portay Lee as one who can stay in sunlight provided he uses sun block while his speed, strength and night vision make him a tougher police officer. In the Thurlos world, skinwalkers are evil creatures who must be killed; a variation on the werewolf legend.
