|Plot Summary of The Hour of the Oxrun Dead|
A year has passed since Natalie Windsor's husband was mutilated and killed by a "catlike" creature while responding to a false police call. A murder very similar to that occuring to her husband's is committed. Natalie's in laws still keep close tabs on her and when she sees a ring very similar to that of her late husband's on her brother in law's finger, she begins to notice more of the social uppercrust of Oxrun Station wearing them as well. When Marc, a newspaper reporter and close friend invites her to a party at the Toal (prominent politician) Mansion, she overhears a possible threat on her life being made by the Toal women. Natalie is chased by a "monster" resembling a cat on more than one occasion. With Marc by her side, she races to find out the truth about the Oxrun elite before she becomes this year's sacrifice!
