She has been banished from the city to a remote area and a murdered girl lands on her doorstep...

Danielle has always been 'linked' to others so when her links were cut and she was banished from the city it was a shock in more ways than one. She no longer had fast access to information, food, friends... anything. Now she will fend for herself and she is notorious for having been part of an experimental type of linking with 3 others. They are either dead or dead to Danielle anyway. Then, soon after moving in, an injured young girl turns up on her doorstep. The girl soon dies and Danielle cannot let go of the mystery of her death. With Neil, who lives in a neighbouring commune, she begins to make enquiries at places all over the countryside and starts suspecting that someone is making illegal modifications to humans. Could it be that vampirism is becoming a trait in some humans from this illegal activity. And, if so, how far has it gone? Can Danielle find the source before they are all dead.

An exciting, fast-paced read from one of Australia's premier storytellers for young adults.
