Leave it to Kitty Norville to take reality TV to a whole new gruesome level! Survival is the name of the game in Vaughn's fast-paced thriller, and the claustrophobic feel of this story is enhanced by Kitty's first-person viewpoint. It's nail-biting in the extreme.

When Kitty is first approached about participating in a reality TV show featuring a supernatural cast, she is dubious. But when two of her psychic friends, Tina and Jeffrey, get suckered in, she agrees to participate. As the cast and crew assemble at a remote Montana lodge, Kitty learns that, in addition to a couple of vampires, her friend, the very mysterious magician Odysseus Grant, has also signed on. The show's premise is that all the various supernatural entities are supposed to convince confirmed skeptic Conrad Garrett of their existence. But when the power goes out and the deaths start, the new storyline seems to be "And Then There Were None." (GRAND CENTRAL, Jan., 304 pp., $7.99)
