Cursed by a witch in 1860, the vampire must kill five women in a one month period from
Black Friday to Christmas Eve each decade. With the murder of the final victim,
the curse will be lifted and the vampire will become human and live a normal
As that glorious day approaches, the vampire plays with the lives of a detective, Hiram Lasky; Police officers Mike McGinnis, who witnessed the first murder, and his partner Sara Jameison; Letter carrier Brian Miller and his new love Jessie Sterling.
The first killing reveals that a vampire is responsible, setting off a media
firestorm. Hysteria becomes the norm for every person searching for a creature
who mocks them from every corner.
On Christmas Eve, the vampire selects the final victim and takes her to the Star
of Bethlehem to finally end the curse. The battle of good versus evil ensues.
