The third installment of David and Aimée Thurlo's Lee Nez mystery saga (Second Sunrise and Blood Retribution) pits FBI Special Agent Diane Lopez and half-vampire Lee Nez (a.k.a. New Mexico State police officer Leo Hawk) against their most dangerous foe yet -- a vampire who has been driven insane after being the guinea pig in a series of torturous secret government experiments.
After three people are found brutally murdered near a remote government facility, Hawk and Lopez soon discover that the alleged research center is actually a high-tech torture chamber where a group of sadistic scientists are trying to forcefully figure out how Stewart Tanner can heal himself of wounds so quickly. But when a thunderstorm causes a temporary electrical outage, Tanner breaks free from his prison and begins a bloody killing spree across New Mexico. As Hawk and Lopez give chase, Leo must be doubly careful to disguise his vampiric abilities. After all, if Tanner is captured and killed, the government will need another test subject!
With all the nonstop action of E. E. Knight's Vampire Earth saga and the dark humor of Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire mysteries, the Thurlos' Lee Nez novels will appeal to mystery, horror, and dark fantasy fans alike. The seamless blend of mystery and horror will keep readers guessing -- and shaking -- until the very end. Paul Goat Allen
