Walking Shadows 2012 single work novel fantasy crime

'Lissa Wilson's world turned upside-down a year ago.

'People she cared about - one she could have loved - were murdered. By vampires. They tried to kill her, too.

'On the plus side, she made a new friend. Gary Hooper might be Melbourne's (or maybe the world's) least impressive vampire, but he may be her best friend, ever.

'Without meaning to, he changed her and he taught her the value of her life. Knowing Lissa has changed Gary, too, even though he's not really sure what it means. It doesn't mean that Gary doesn't have secrets, though. Secrets that might end their friendship, if Lissa ever learned about the services he provides the undead community.

'And what's an ordinary geekgirl librarian to do when hardcore vampire killers begin killing off Melbourne's vampire population, and her undead bestie is on the hit list? Should she throw herself in mortal danger, despite having no battle skills, let alone supernatural strength?

'Lissa risks everything to protect someone who should be perfectly capable of protecting himself. And Gary finds that the ways he's changing might make him more human - if they don't get him killed.

'Everyone has secrets; everyone gets trapped by their history. How many can learn how to change? How many will live long enough to try?'
