45:120 Death's Rival by Faith Hunter

The 5th book in the Jane Yellowrock series.  Master vampires of other cities are being struck down by a strange illness and when one of them happens to be one that is loyal to Leo, he sends out Jane to start investigating.  As soon as she does tho, people start trying to kill her and these are not just ordinary thugs but well informed, well armed, and well trained.  When she returns, she starts to solve the mystery of who is gunning for her and how it's connected with the sick vampires and at first, all she can figure out it is that all goes back to Asheville.  Can she figure out what is going on in time to save her own hide?  And even if she can, what will it cost in the end?

Really, really love this world and was glad to be able to get back to it again.  Very fast paced but a lot of side-plots going on in addition to the main plot.  My only complaint is that the ending wrapped up too quickly and neatly when it came to the bad guys.  I was kind of hoping to see part of it resolved and then the main baddie be around causing more trouble for a few more books.  Thankfully I have the newest one here so I can find out where things do go from here very quickly.  Too bad I'll have to wait for probably another year for the one after that.
