Where Old Gods meet New… a Legend is Born…
After a death-defying fall, Detective Samantha “Sam” Karolyi hopes to use her leave from work to heal her body, and care for her aging grandfather, Ivan. But a series of strange incidents intrudes on her rehabilitation – a drug addict gutted in an alley; a young thief’s suicide by bus; bodies disappearing from the City Mortuary – and Sam realizes that something is terribly wrong in New York City.
When her grandfather is attacked by a vicious animal and left for dead, Sam begins an investigation that places her directly in the path of one of these animals, an encounter that leaves Sam wounded… And infected with Lycanthropic Virus.
Werewolves, creatures of legend, now roam the streets of New York City.
As she struggles through the physical and emotional transformation process, Sam – along with her partner, Lenny; her childhood friend, Ben; and a mysterious “Man in Black” – begins to uncover the truth about these werewolves, and the truth about the BLOODLINE.
For New Scotland Yard detectives Hagen and Pierce, the finger of motive points to the rowdy bunch trying to stop construction on the site… at least until a second body enters the equation.

Follow the Patterns…

When forensic photographer Kate Gardener steps in for her injured supervisor, the brash American ex-pat finds herself at the scene of a truly brutal murder. The naked, castrated body of a young pharmacist has been found at the edge of Regent's Park.
Gifted with acute sensitivity and a "photographic" memory, Kate is uniquely suited to capturing the details of crime scenes and seeing what others do not see. Something about this crime scene haunts her, though, and her frustration grows as the investigation proceeds.
After the victim is linked to the sensational decade-old murder of a young woman, and a second equally-brutal crime scene is discovered, Kate has to agree with New Scotland Yard's Murder Squad detectives that there is a definite link between the cases. Then crime scene photos go missing -- and a coworker's strange behavior takes center stage -- and Kate begins to fear that the murderer may be close to the case... and about to strike again.
Kate's instincts for solving crimes have always been spot-on... but finding the truth this time may be more dangerous than she could ever have imagined.
