Special Investigative Services agents John Benchley and his lover and partner Evan Garrett from "And Hell Itself Breathes Out" are back with another case from the files of the otherworldly and unexplained. In "Now I Could Drink Hot Blood", they join forces with a psychic assigned to the FBI, Dr. Gabrielle Dichenz, in order to track a killer. Their latest case finds them with bodies piling up and all the clues defying everyday logic. The victims in their case have had their throats ripped out by something toothy, and all of the bloody samples left behind catch fire in sunlight. Any other investigators would be baffled, but John, Evan and their team are far from normal. Can they solve the case before the death toll sky-rockets? Meanwhile, their new team member, Dr. Dichenz, has problems of her own in the guise of an abusive lover, a situation that John finds untenable. He insists on doing something about it. Will his efforts help or hinder Gabrielle sort out her personal demons? And can John protect Gabrielle from a psychopath and a monster without losing his lover Evan?
