CODE 61: maintain radio silence. someone may be listening.
Investigating the apparent suicide of a colleague’s niece, Iowa Deputy Sheriff Carl Houseman is startled to uncover a group that transforms the dark fantasies of vampire legend into grisly reality: they ritualistically drink small amounts of one another’s blood. As Carl is drawn deeper into this unnerving world, it becomes clear that the dead woman may have been the victim of a twenty-first-century Dracula.
The prime suspect, Dan Peale, is a sinister presence within the group--a man some say drinks blood and never, ever dies. It’s an outlandish, heinous theory, but then suspicions are bolstered by rumors of a card-carrying vampire hunter who is also pursuing Peale. All too soon, Houseman finds himself scrambling to track a vampire--before he kills again.

I guess I could say it started for us on Thursday, October 5, 2000. I can say that now. I sure couldn't at the time.
It was exactly 23:33 hours, and I was just leaving the scene of a minor fender bender, and was en route home when the communications center called.
"Comm, Three?" came crackling over the radio, from the familiar voice of my favorite dispatcher, Sally Wells.
I picked up my mike, suspicious already. "This is Three. Go ahead."
"Three, we have a 911 intruder call, 606 Main, Freiberg. Female subject needs immediate assistance. Freiberg officer has been dispatched and is requesting backup."
I sighed audibly. "Ten-four, Comm." I took stock of my current location. "I'll be ten-seventy-six to the scene from about seven miles out on County Four Victor Six."
"Three, ten-seventy-six. Three, not sure if this is completely ten-thirty-three, but you might be aware that the female subject indicated that there was a man trying to come in her window."
I reached down and turned on my red and blue top lights. "Three is en route. Can she ID the suspect?"
"Contact was broken by the caller, Three. Auto callback rings through, no answer. Female subject was very excited, but described the intruder as a white male with . . ."

"Ten-four, Three. Teeth."
"Ah, okay, ten-four. Still en route
