Though the premise has been overused, Graham's latest certainly has its share
of thrills and chills. What really grates: Lauren's stubborn refusal to believe she's in danger and subsequent random stupid-heroine behavior.
Yet the only man on Lauren's horizon seems to be Mark Davidson, a self-proclaimed vampire hunter. Lauren suspects Mark's a little mad, but when strange things start to happen -- including a series of grisly murders -- she's forced to trust him.
