I just finished John Wooley's AWASH IN THE BLOOD, and I'm still feeling a tingling numbness from the power of this work. Televangelist Mo Johnson seems more interested in being the center of attention than in spreading the Word. And, as his ministry travels through Romania, he can't get his mind off his pretty producer. In a Transylvanian hotel, he is attacked by a creature that leaves him with a severe bite on the neck. Johnston, recognizing a great 'show' opportunity, orders his producer to start taping while he 'recreates' the struggle. He believes he has fought Satan and won! But he hasn't won. As the infection from the bite slowly turns him into a vampire, his little true faith is perverted into a belief in himself as the savior of the world. After all, he can give the gift of eternal life. All it takes is a little bite on the neck. Johnston journeys from minister to brutal vampire then ultimately to a struggle toward salvation for those he has hurt and perhaps for himself. Wooley's tale of the fight between good and evil takes mankind's nightmares and makes them terrifyingly believable. I wonder where I can get a cross made of garlic to wear at night...
