HER LARYNX ROTTED AWAY YEARS AGO
THE POLICEMAN'S HEAD CAME WITH IT.
This is a vampire masterpiece, a sleeper, a character driven classic. This book was published in 2007 and took some reviewer hits because the main character is a lesbian. The recording was made in 2010. That was only six years ago, but it seems gayness was more disturbing to some, more than heads being cut off, humans being eaten alive, half deads killing people and vampires. IF YOUR DONE PISSING ON MY SHOES.
SHE WAS GETTING USED TO BEING SCARED
The story starts right off with the action, with one of the best beginnings to any book I have ever read. It gave me PROUD FLESH. These are not good looking ripped or beautiful vampires. These are bald headed, shark teethed vampires. There is a lot of action, but also character building. I thought the whole thing was smartly done.
PSYCHIC SELF DEFENSE
There is about a two to three hour lag in the late middle. There is some paranormal activity. There is a sort of dreamy scene. I could have done without some of that, but it is a small part of the whole. I used to live in Pennsylvania and part of the country where this takes place, but I had never heard of PennsylTucky before, but I know what the author is talking about.
HE'S STILL IN MY HEAD
Wellington does a great job of showing how vampires manipulate people and how they get into your head. WE WANT YOU TO KILL YOURSELF. Don't let the cover hold you back. I almost did that and I almost did that with Patient Zero, which turned out to be one of my favorite books. Zombie fans should enjoy this book.

Early season X-Files kills Twilight!
This is an unstoppable Horror Thriller! If you loved the investigation of early season X-files get ready to ramp it up to 11 with unspeakably violent vampires. They don't want to kiss you, they want to eat you.
This is the first book in a five book series by David Wellington. Wellington tears away all the "beautiful" from the vampire mythos and keeps the savagery. It's honest and refreshing. All the vampires are terrible blood junkies and weren't much better in life.
I love this book the most of the five because Caxton, the lead, is so raw and new here. The relationship between her and the US Marshal define the book. He is just as unlikeable as a vampire.
One more thought... The narrorator for this audiobook is ACES!!! She has excitement in her voice and great nuance between the characters. Give it your best ear!
