Someone has kidnapped the vampire’s son. And they’d better pray Shade finds Dimitri before daddy finds out he's missing… After barely surviving Halloween—physically and emotionally—Shade is ready for a distraction. She gets her wish when Dimitri Winters, son of vampiric crime lord, Anton Winters, hires her to look into a disappearance— His own. And she's got to do it without his father finding out. According to a cryptic audio file sent to her by Dimitri himself, and information delivered to Shade by her technology-savvy ally, Silence, while investigating a top secret security breach, Dimitri followed a potential suspect to a motel room—and was taken prisoner. Now Dimitri is gone. And his suspect is dead. Evidence suggests Dimitri was held captive by the victim before he escaped, but there’s no clue to what happened to him after the murder, and Shade is forced to call on unusual allies to help her in her search—allies as chaotic as they are helpful. Piece by piece, they start to put together a picture of what happened. Unfortunately, the first murder isn’t the last, and keeping secrets from Cleveland’s most notorious vampire is as dangerous as it is difficult. To make matters worse, Shade begins to realize that someone is working against her behind the scenes… The line between friend and enemy blurs, and Shade suddenly understands that a choice between two evils is no choice at all…

‘Shroud will not be easily surpassed for its combination of wit, moral complexity and compassion. It is hard to see what more a novel could do’ Irish Times Dark secrets and reality unravel in Shroud, the second of John Banville's three novels to feature Cass Cleave, alongside Eclipse and Ancient Light. Axel Vander, distinguished intellectual and elderly academic, is not the man he seems. When a letter arrives out of the blue, threatening to unveil his secrets – and carefully concealed identity – Vander travels to Turin to meet its author. There, muddled by age and alcohol, unable always to distinguish fact from fiction, Vander comes face to face with the woman who has the knowledge to unmask him, Cass Cleave. However, her sense of reality is as unreliable as his, and the two are quickly drawn together, their relationship dark, disturbed and doomed to disaster from its very start.
