In this comedy of errors, a young lawyer, Bradley Harrington Chester III, is not living his dream. He has married a gorgeous woman against his parents’ wishes, and his less than stellar performance at law school has earned him a job in the New Orleans district attorney’s office, instead of at his father’s prestigious firm. On his first day there he meets up with Richard Bleddon, the self-confessed golden boy of that office, and a man who will go to any lengths to keep his position. Which is proven true when Brad usurps him by stealing his big case away, and Bleddon arranges to have him murdered.
Brad has gotten through life because of a winning smile, surfer-blonde hair, blue eyes, high cheekbones, and a body sculpted by Michelangelo. But when a monster car runs him down in the street, and leaves him hanging out in a throng of gray figures shuffling into a bright light, it seems that his winning days are over, until Count Dracula approaches him. The Count tells Brad he’s given up his evil ways, and now plays violin in a band called the Techno Zombies. But more importantly he’s looking for a lawyer, and he offers to save Brad’s life with a transfusion of his own immortal blood.
Julia Harrington Chester III is supermodel gorgeous, but she isn’t stupid. She knows that the fairytale is swiftly disappearing from her young marriage, and she isn’t going to take it. So when Richard Bleddon invites Brad and her to a swanky restaurant for a fancy meal that he pays for, she resolves to tell Brad that she wants a divorce, and she does, just before he is cruelly run down in the street, crushed, and mashed to death. She cannot forgive herself for being so insensitive, but this is only the beginning of her ordeal, an ordeal that will test the bonds of love, into death and beyond.
Everybody wants something. Something they will go to any lengths to get. It could be love, it could be money, it could be honor, or it could be just to preserve one’s good name in the face of ruin. What lengths would you go to, to get what you desire, and if it meant crossing the line and committing a crime; would you do it?
