Alpha Jet Gorman might once have been a reluctant leader, but when he discovers someone is willing to murder in order to hide the origins of the newest members of the pack, his protective instincts are out in full force. To prevent further injury to the younger wolves, he works to uncover the truth of his deceased lover’s past—but the real answers he seeks may remain elusive as ever.
As an ancient vampire and former executioner for the Vampire Council, Nico Sanzio da Urbino takes a longer view when it comes to telling the truth—all is fair if you get there eventually—but the conflict between duty and heart have never been so personal. The price may be more than he is willing to pay as he attempts to keep his own secrets intact while helping Jet uncover the previous Alpha’s mysterious past.
With the New Orleans preternatural population continuing to increase at an unnatural rate, the local Alpha and the Odd Squad’s chief enforcer should have their attention focused on maintaining the human-to-super status quo, but with things between them heating up, their mutual distraction could prove deadly.

This third installment to the Ace of Diamonds installment of Pulp Friction has revealed answers totally unexpected and painfully discovered by Jet.
After they stumbled into the grisly tale of human women artificially inseminated with shifter genes, Jet realizes there is one progeny in his pack who is different. The difference points back to the former alpha, the lover Jet is beginning to realize had a lot of dark secrets. He and vampire Nico Sanzio da Urbino attempt to discover more answers and they kind of get them from a deadly ancient. As the pieces to the puzzle begin to click and the real image takes place, Jet realizes the more answers he gains, the more mystery is unfolding and it is getting deadlier for everyone.
Things are really getting heated in this installment and not all of it involves pleasure.
