Vampire Zero - David Wellington

Laura Caxton's mentor Jameson had himself made into a vampire so he could clean out the small Civil War vampire army that had invaded. He then said he'd let Laura shoot him.

He lied.

So now Caxton has an even more dangerous enemy - her old mentor. Now capable of creating more vampires, and possessing the three hundred year old rotting corpose Malven, he is going around with his version of Let's Make A Deal.

To all his family he offers - join me in vampire-ness, or die. 24 hours you have.

One Special Deputy Marshal, hamstrung by a by-the-book anal-retentive bureaucrat boss can't save them all. Plus killing her old boss, who is smart enough to wear body armour to protect his one vulnerable spot, and even use weapons if he feels like it - might just be impossible.

Unless they throws him into some sort of inferno.
