In the wake of pretty-boy Vampires & sweet Southern faerie vamp lovers, comes Alan Ryker, trailing behind him the real thing. Vampires...ugly, animal-like, smelly, and mean...and one (one town dealer) who has a semblance of intelligence left....just enough to spawn cruel vengeance. Add in a "hero" who isn't, whom you love to hate (or at least I did), and you have a real, modern-day Vampire thriller.
It takes place in the farmlands of Kansas, where something has been slaughtering cattle. The local sheriff calls in an expert, but no one can figure out quite what is going on. No one, that is, but Keith Harris, our hero (sort of), who discovers & figures out the mystery and takes the solution into his own hands. Keith has his own struggles to contend with, and soon we begin to wonder who the true monster really is.
This is an excellent novella for those who pine for mean, ruthless, vampires who stalk their prey and ruthlessly devour them. The only negative I could say about it, is that it wasn't long enough! I want more!
