On the ivy-covered Princeton campus, no one suspects that Vincent DeVilbiss is anything more than an unusually charming charlatan. But technology has done a lot to assimilate the modern vampire. Tinted contact lenses hide his amber eyes, sunscreen lets him walk in the daylight, and a mysterious elixir keeps him vital and handsome.

But when Devilbiss draws beautiful Frederika Vanderveen into the erotic and brutal world of the undead, he makes an enemy of Simon Penn, a young rare-books curator who loves the troubled girl from afar. As Simon contronts a seemingly unstoppable foe, he finds the stakes are much higher than one woman's soul. For DeVilbiss has been sent to destroy an ancient document, before its powers can be turned against him and all the evil he has planned for the world.

Vampires, demons, incredibly rare manuscripts, university library, an heiress with a troubled past, and (of course!) a librarian with too much curiosity for his own good. Satisfying read.
