And with that, a centuries-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the President¹s Vampire. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Farnsworth’s high-octane third supernatural thriller (after The President’s Vampire) starring Nathanial Cade, a vampire who’s served America’s presidents for centuries, pits him against a nigh-unstoppable adversary: the Boogeyman, a “spiritual parasite” whose physical forms Cade has confronted and destroyed in the past. This time the Boogeyman has teamed up with another of Cade’s enemies to target members of President Samuel Curtis’s staff and re-election campaign volunteers. Cade and his human assistant, Zach Barrows, aid the Secret Service as Curtis campaigns in the Midwest, facing additional dangers like internal conflicts and rabid anti-Curtis journalist Megan Roark. Curtis may lose the White House even if Cade can save his life. Farnsworth keeps the twists and explosive violence coming, keeping readers in suspense until the very last page. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, Linda Chester Literary Agency. (May)
Kirkus Reviews
Farnsworth's universe of vampires and otherworldly creatures comes alive for the third time in this latest installment of the Nathaniel Cade series. Blood gushes against a political backdrop in this aptly named testament to gore. Cade, a vampire who was caught and bound to the service of the president by a voodoo practitioner in another century, has sworn to protect the nation and its leader. Accompanied by Zach Barrows, who in another life worked on President Samuel Curtis' election campaign, Cade has spent the previous three years working to keep the underworld at bay. Although Americans don't realize it, in Cade's world the things that go bump in the night are as real as trees and grass, but the government has spent decades covering up, collecting and destroying proof they exist. Every once in a while, though, something breaks through to this side and Cade is called in to put it down. A creature that moves with lightening speed and astonishing strength, Cade has the power to mend his own wounds and is an unparalleled fighter. However, he has almost met his match in the Boogeyman, a legendary figure that draws its power and thirst for blood from the proliferation of killers and sadists that populate the planet. While the president is on the campaign trail, evidence surfaces that the Bogeyman is back in action and preparing to take out the nation's leader, and Cade and Zach are dispatched to stop him and his cohorts. Chock full of violence and disembowelment, the book follows Cade as he tracks the killer through Middle America. Farnsworth manages to slow down the pace by inserting ham-fisted political rhetoric into the story; he would have been better off sticking to the action. Instead, he chose to turn Curtis into a certain not-very-thinly-described incumbent and muddy what is essentially an action story with politics. More complicated and somewhat sillier than the previous Cade novels; fans of nonstop action can skim over the politicizing passages to get to the blood and guts, while ignoring the author's tendency to preach politics.

    Great characters, tight, fast-moving plot-- a bloody fun read!

    It's an election year. Once you hit the inevitable point in the near future when you just cannot face one more left-or-right-leaning piece of political commentary, THIS is the book to grab. I mean, who WOULDN'T enjoy reading about a monster who targets political hacks with... hacks?

    Generally I don't go for vampire genre books because they tend to be poorly written and too formulaic to be exciting. This series rocks it, though. (Red, White and Blood is book 3; the first two novels were excellent as well.) In vampire Nathaniel Cade and his handler Zach Barrows, Farnsworth has created characters as cool and well-matched as Holmes & Watson or Spock and Kirk.

    The WRITING is what I loved: the dialog was snappy and fun and the plot had nonstop hairpin turns that were beautifully crafted. And by overlaying this construct of a vampire who is bound by oath to serve and protect the president onto the 2012 campaign trail... well, it just WORKS. Really really well.

    Fast pace. Unique and well-formed characters. Fun and surprisingly twisty plot. Backstage on the campaign trail. AND WITH A VAMPIRE -- trust me, it works!

    (BTW, I have zero connection to the author. I simply think he is a talented guy and I had fun reading his books.)

    Get it soon. A great read!

    The very 1st page grabs you and the thrill ride
    continues from there. This book is one you don't
    want to put down until the last page!
    Scary enough that you might not want to read
    if you're home alone. Terrific characters.

    Very Good, Good Read

    This series is not your normal vampire romances!. Actually there is no romance. It is a combination suspense spy thriller with a vampire as a character. I do have to say that I did wish for Cade, the vampire, to be more prominent in the book he is just one of many characters to me. I would have liked him to have had more depth, but I have read the whole series to now and will read any new books.

    couldn't recommend

    Read the first book in the public library. Had a good storyline. Good characters and plenty of action. Enjoyed it though it was quite different from what I usually read. Bought the second book as soon as it came out. I was a little disappointed in it. Didn't feel it was up to the first. Pre-ordered the third, and was sorely disappointed in it. Too much blood, gut, and sex and not enough of a good story to keep my interest. Read about 1/3 of the book and gave it away.

    I love this book as much as the first two in the series

    In this era of paranormal reads galore it is great to find a unique twist onthe vampire story. Cade is bound to the office of the Presidency and takes his "job" and commitment very seriously. Along with his human assistant who acts as a conduit with the President, Cade take on the job of cleaning up all that is odd and threatening to our way of life, The stories have enough political intrigue mirroring things past and present and issues abroad that also follow current events to make this entertaining and thought provoking. This book follows the President on the campaign re-election trail with horrible deaths of campaign workers in the wake of the entourage.

    Creepy and suspenseful, this is my favorite book in the series and I've really enjoyed all three. As scary as the paranormal "Other Side" bad guys are, the humans who choose evil (politicians, reporters, shadow government dudes!) are easily the most horrifying, and they outshine the monsters in this story. Which is pretty impressive when the actual villain is a demon from hell who carves up people for fun. Add in a seamless blending of historic record, conspiracy theories, and real people, and the world of Nathaniel Cade feels like our own. The shocking and ironic ending of this book reinforces that as well, and has lingered in my mind for days.
    This is top-notch storytelling.

    5 Star!!!!!!

    This is the 3rd in the seres about Nathaniel Cade. Way to go Christopher Farnsworth! I have been collecting Vampire books for years and have a collection of over 300. This book and the 2 before it are AWESOME! Farnsworth's plot about a vampire who answers to the President is so creative and fresh. The characters are wonderful and well developed. A throughly enjoyable read if you like books about vampires and the supernatural. I highly recommend you go buy it!

    I didn't have as many problems with this one as I did with the previous book in the series, but I still didn't like it as much as the first.

    I didn't have as many problems with this one as I did with the previous book in the series, but I still didn't like it as much as the first.

    Again we get a lot of cannon fodder, but it doesn't work against the story this time. The main supernatural threat of the book is a Jason Voorhees style killer. So as we go through the story, we occasionally get side tracked to briefly introduce a couple of new characters so that they can be killed off. Which is the same as what the author did in the last book (introducing minor characters to be killed), but it's handled better. It's not reliving the same moment of time over and over again from different perspectives just to increase the body count. It works because of the villain.

    My problem with it comes with an increase in the adult content. The series over all is definitely not for children, but this one goes further. The language is saltier, more characters are featured in compromising situations, and the descriptions of crime scenes are a bit gorier. Again, this is tied to the villain used. Instead of a supernatural thing that just kills at random, we have a superpowered guy with a big knife killing people that fit a specific modus operandi. Probably not a problem for most people, just not my cup of tea.

    Great Cliffhanger after a Fun Horror Adventure

    I'm not usually a big fan of monster books, but this series us really fun and weird. And, this one not only had a great adventure in Monster Hunting, it has a great cliff hanger ending. I'm looking forward to the next book, which could be CRAZY if the story goes the way I think it will. It really is a great adventure with some really fun Slasher Movie gripes and inside jokes. The next book will require you to have read this one, the other books don't need to be read in order, but the next one will.

    So this is the 3rd book in the Nathaniel Cade series, and it is

    So this is the 3rd book in the Nathaniel Cade series, and it is the best one so far. I have to say overall story was a little slow, but what really made the book was the ending. I never expect it!! But what really made the book for me was Cade back story. I loved reading about how he interacted with past Presidents, and the orders he was given. I know that it's going to be at least a year before the next book comes out, but when it does I will be at the book store to pick it up. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
