It should have been the end of Commander John Reese's connection to vampires once he left the military. But, he's teaching a class based on a book he wrote on myths and legends with an emphasis on vampires -- something he knows all about, especially how they can be used as a weapon by their controllers. Reese was influential in the building of a prison to incarcerate the four vampires captured in Kosovo and found a way to control them by forcing them to wear collars containing an elixir that can be remotely detonated by their handlers. The U.S. military uses them to kill the enemy, for the vampires know the explosion of their collar would kill them. From official release/information:
From back of book: Commander John Reese struggles with the decision he made to free the vampires, code name Team of Darkness. Unbeknownst to Reese, his efforts to stop the operation was undermined by the action of General Stone who secretly secured the bodies of two young girls who have now turned into full fledged vampires ready to be trained to become killers for the General's personal ambitions. However, General Stone is suddenly murdered in his home. His assassin is a vampire who has been controlled and used by a U.S. secret government organization known as the Agency, to murder selected targets since her arrival in the United States over sixty years ago. Meanwhile, the vampires form the Team of Darkness operation discover the existence of the two young vampire girls being held captive in their own former prison and set out to free them while eluding both the military and the Agency.
