on 1 reviews
It's a roller-coaster ride of espionage, murder for hire, grand theft and bloody revenge as an undead assassin-spy journeys from 1960s Saigon to the outer planets of the twenty-third century. Part hard boiled, part sci-fi, part dark comedy, "...it will appeal to anybody who enjoys vampire books. I’m gonna hate myself in the morning but I need to keep reading!" More
In the realm of vampire fiction, we meet dangerous, romantic, exotic beings – in a word, they’re extraordinary. But what if a perfectly ordinary person became a vampire? Would his undead existence be ... ordinary?
Hardly. THE VAMPIRE IN FREE FALL takes us on a roller-coaster ride of adventure as our “ordinary” night stalker finds himself caught up in espionage, murder for hire, grand theft and bloody revenge. The dangers of his tour as a soldier in Vietnam quickly pale against the car chases, street fights, burglaries and contract killings of his new life as a blood-drinking assassin-spy. Whether he can escape his human handlers and attain freedom, peace of mind and the love he craves is another matter. But never is this vampire’s life merely ordinary.
Jim Hull – author of "Are Humans Obsolete?" – brings a unique approach to the vampire thriller, taking us from Saigon to the outer planets, from the 1960s to the twenty-third century, from a war in the jungle to battles in space. It’s part hard-boiled, part sci-fi, part dark comedy and all excitement, a tale that’ll keep you in its grip.
"Passed my two tests for a good book: a) I had trouble putting it down and b) I did not want it to end."
“It will appeal to anybody who enjoys vampire books . . . I’m gonna hate myself in the morning but I need to keep reading!”
