Mike McNichols, a master at storytelling, weaves a fast moving and suspenseful tale involving normal everyday families and vampires. You’re not quite sure what to believe as the story moves, but keeps you needing to know what’s going to happen next. If you enjoy thrillers and a good story, you’ll enjoy this book. Can’t wait to see if there’s a sequel…

This book was great. I could not put it down. The whole way through the book you do not know where the story is going to go and it has your heart pounding as you get into the book. Really well written and lots of twists and turns in it, good Christmas present!

I read the print version. I was so drawn into the story that I found it impossible to put the book down, read it in one sitting. The characters are all well developed, the story has twists and turns that make you want to find out what happens next. I like the connection with the past being worked in to the present day thriller.
