Kitty Norville is trying to balance her wants and need with that of the Supernatural world - a balance that is often hard to keep. She entered the world not by her own choice but by that of a Werewolf out on the prowl. She was in her college years and with a man who took advantage of her; by raping her and then leaving her in a secluded dark park.
Now adapting to her pack, she finds that she is the bottom of the pack - something she doesn't mind too much as long as she can keep her pride and joy - her radio show. They say all good things must come to an end, and our Kitty does not agree to that saying. A local Vampire leader comes to her alpha and demands that she stop her radio show - for it might bring attention to the supernatural world. Wold you let something go that you've worked so hard to create? I did not think so.
Kitty whines and begs for Carl (the alpha pack leader) to let her keep the show after it becomes syndicated, after all she'll be giving Carl a nice fee to let her keep the show. That does not bode well with the Vampires and other pack members especially her best friend TJ. He agrees with Carl (naturally so, since he is the Beta male) and tells Kitty to shut the show down.
One night while doing the show she gets a rather interesting call.
"Hello Kitty I'm in the lobby and I'm here to kill you."
Quickly thinking Kitty knows the only way to save her life is to keep the guy on the line, and then make him her friend. Cormac (the hitman) tells her the rules set forth - he must kill her on air. However, our Kitty is smart and a fast thinker - and comes to the conclusion that both she and Carmac have been set up. She quickly explains this to Cormac who then makes a deal with Kitty.
The death threat on Kitty is only one of many. She now begins to play detective, and finds that all that glitters is not gold within her pack. The police begin to call on her as a retainer to help them solve a slew of murders that have yet to be solved. Can Kitty find out who has been orders the hits - is it the Vampire leader or someone within the pack? Who has been slaughtering helpless victims in the city? Kitty has to solve the riddles while fighting for a place in the world.
