This book kept me reading too long into the night. Bloodthirst in Babylon is a vampire novel, but not like anything I’ve ever read before. It’s got characters you really feel for and a plot that’s tightly constructed and well paced. There’s a horrific setup and great action and a lot of sudden frights but poignant and humorous moments too. Easily the best vampire book I’ve read since Salem’s Lot.
I haven't read a vampire novel since Bram Stoker's "Dracula" five or more years ago so thought that I'd see if any modern author could challenge "the master". After reading "Bloodthirst in Babylon" I now believe that were Stoker alive today, he'd definitely consider Mr. Searls a worthy contender for his crown. This addictive novel puts believable characters in frightening situations and I found myself really caring about them and rooting for them to escape their deadly peril. Suspense - shock - humor - it's all there and more. I read a lot of novels and can usually guess the outcome about two thirds of the way through; not this time! By the time I reached the last chapter I still didn't know how this gripping tale would end. Is anyone in Hollywood reading this? Don't pick up this book expecting the stereotypical "slash-n-splash" vampire schlock - you're in for an exciting and a believable read.
