Publisher's Summary

It's the thrill of a lifetime when Sophie and Natalie, single mothers living in a trailer park in North Carolina, meet their idol, the mysterious musician known only as 'the Whistler.' Morning finds them covered with dried blood, their clothing shredded and their memories hazy. Things soon become horrifyingly clear: the Whistler is a vampire and Natalie and Sophie are his latest victims. The young women leave their babies with Natalie's mother and hit the road, determined not to give in to their unnatural desires. Hunger and desire make a powerful couple. So do the Whistler and his Mother, who are searching for Sophie and Natalie with the help of Twitter and the musician's many fans. The violent, emotionally moving showdown will leave readers gasping in fear and delight.

Critic Reviews

Starred review. "Award-winning author Hirshberg takes readers on a grisly yet darkly comedic road trip in this outstanding southern horror tale..." ( Booklist)
"Glen Hirshberg is an amazing writer who makes the materials of horror into what they were supposed to be all along - grandly sweeping, capable of tremendous reach, and open to all aspects of human experience. Motherless Child shows him at the peak of his form." (Peter Straub, New York Times best-selling author.
"Motherless Child is as heartbreaking as it is horrific. Natalie and Sophie, two single mothers who are lifelong friends living in a trailer park in North Carolina, are turned into vampires during a rare night out. The two young women are forced to leave behind their infants in order to protect them from the changes occurring. Think Thelma and Louise with vampires." (Ellen Datlow, winner of three Hugo Awards, and many other honors).
