Hot talent Mulvany ventures into the vampire realm with this dangerous and gritty tale. The threat is palpable as these protagonists fight to outwit a deranged and vicious killer. In one word: intense!
Investigative reporter Regan Cluny has been trying for months to interview reclusive philanthropist Charles Cunningham Nash about his mysterious archeological dig. On her way to the remote camp, Regan runs afoul of a biker gang who attack and torture her.
Gang leader Harper has a vendetta against Nash, who rescues the barely alive Regan. Harper insinuates there's more to Nash than meets the eye, but Regan never dreams that he is a vampire and that their blood feud dates back to the Civil War. Killing indiscriminately is something that Harper excels at -- meaning Nash is running out of time if he hopes to finish his quest and keep Regan alive. (POCKET STAR, Aug., 384 pp., $6.99)
