Sam hasn't seen his first love, Cat, for 10 years. But now she's back and is asking for help to kill a vampire. Sam doesn't believe in vampires, but he does believe the marks on Cat's body. Are they self-inflicted, or is there really a vampire?

What I got wasn't even a horror novel. This book is never scary. It also not about the supernatural or anything else that would qualify as fantastic.
The book presents us with several characters (both the good guys and the bad guys) that make dumb choices and then spend the rest of the book trying to deal with the repercussions. There were several places along the way where I just wished I could stop and smack one of the characters on the head and say "Wake up! Think about what you are doing."
After I finished the book, I donated it to the local library. I feel guilty about that now, because I may have exposed even more people to this drivel.
There is a knock on Sam's door one night, and there is the girl he has loved his whole life standing in the door in a robe asking for him to come with her. Sam quickly finds he has landed in his own version of "Blue Velvet," standing in a closet waiting for a vampire with the fearsome name of Elliot to show up. Elliot is staked reasonably quickly and our murderers now have to dispose of him. I say him because he's a vampire, and as we all know, vampires may not be dead even when you think they are. Sam and Cat make a mess of getting Elliot into Cat's car, spending a fair amount of time on the details of how messy they got and cleaning everything up. In a way, all this action is still background for the story.
Sam and Cat then take off into the desert to go find a place to get rid of Elliot. Coincidence number one happens when they have a blowout, which may have been a gunshot, and run into a big guy by the name of Snow White. White states that he was forced off the highway by a gunshot.Read more ›
