Heather Graham's first paranormal vampire novel, set in post-Katrina New Orleans, starts off at a flying pace and doesn't let up.
As psychologist Jessica Fraser is about to go off to a conference in Romania, she has a strong premonition of evil. That becomes reality in Transylvania, when her friends are invited to a club run by a charismatic dominatrix, only to be attacked by vampires. Back in New Orleans, one of them ultimately dies and then goes missing from the morgue. Enter Bryan McAllister, a professor who believes the next gathering of a cult of vampires, led by the especially powerful vampire called the Master, will take place in America. He and Jessica are alternately drawn to and suspicious of each other -- he's got dark secrets, but so does she -- but the attraction prevails. As with Ghost Walk and other novels, Graham knows how to keep the atmosphere sufficiently spooky to give readers the shivers to the end. Ginger Curwen
