Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013
The presidential campaign trail, 2012: A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while caught in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK.
And with that, a centuries-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the president's vampire. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely. And they must do it before the Boogeyman adds another victim to his long and bloody list: the President of the United States himself.

Wow he does it again!

Would you listen to Red, White, and Blood again? Why?

I already have two times. It's just that great!


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot of this book seems really linear at the start but after 20 mins or so you enter a rollercoaster of plot twists and red herrings that leave you guessing about with will happen next.


Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes but only in the first two of The president's vampire books. I feel he does a great job at catching the character of each person in the book and passes this on to the listener in the nuances he uses.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

To Be Continued.


Any additional comments?

If you liked the first or second book even a little you will love this one.

Fave Audible book - bloody great fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm recommending this widely because I enjoyed it so much. Bronson Pinchot's a WONDERFULLY talented narrator; one of the best. He brings Farnsworth's characters vividly to life -- and the writing, the dialog, is FUN. The plot is fast-moving and extremely well-written. You'll be surprised by the sturdy and strong craftsmanship of the novel -- plot twists galore; surprises, page-turning tension, nicely drawn characters... I just loved it.


What other book might you compare Red, White, and Blood to and why?

I've read all three of Chris Farnsworth's Nathaniel Cade books. He's got a goldmine of a series here -- the characters are fresh and the concept innovative. It's sort of like finding the best new fusion cuisine before the rest of the crowd. In terms of surprises and pace and just plain reading (and listening) delight, I'd compare it to Mira Grant's FEED series. (FYI, those are AWESOME on Audible.) Not the same subject matter, but honestly nothing can wreck a great book like a bad narrator -- like with Grant's books, the President's Vampire series has secured a top-notch narrator who "gets it" -- who understands the sheer listening pleasure of a voice that can bring characters to life.


Which scene was your favorite?

Oh, man! The LAST SCENE was such a twist, I was stunned -- and now I'm cursing the publishing gods that make new books take for-ev-er to be released. That's all I'm sayin' -- just get to the end. Wow. (And don't you DARE flip to the back - no peeking.) No Spoiler Alert -- just... wow. I totally didn't see THAT coming!


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

They've already nailed it -- thanks Putnam. Check the YouTube trailer.


Any additional comments?

This is the author's third book. I'm rooting for this guy! He is a TALENTED writer -- and I'm a really picky reader and listener. When you're reviewing for an Audible.com title, you're considering a partnership: does the narrator bring the book to life, or does he just slog through it? I HATE when books I enjoy are destroyed by bad narration. Pinchot rocks it, and makes Farnsworth's work play beautifully on the giant screen in your mind.

This is Cinematic with a Capital C. It will make a fabulous film. I generally don't "gush" about books, but this one -- actually this whole series -- just hit me with sheer delight. Even if you'd never think of reading a "vampire book" -- at least check out the promo bit for this; you'll be surprised. It's such a neat tweak to interweave vampire lore with modern-day politics, and it just plain works. But overall, it's just plain and simply great writing. This is fun, fast-paced craftsmanship.
