Publisher's Summary

A legend is born. In 1972, Jeff Rice's novel The Night Stalker introduced Carl Kolchak to the world. This spine-tingling novel of supernatural terror became a best seller and served as the basis for the film of the same name, starring Darren McGavin and adapted by legendary Twilight Zone screenwriter Richard Matheson. After The Night Stalker became one of the highest-rated television movies of all time, a sequel, The Night Strangler, was released the following year to great acclaim.
Carl Kolchak, as the world's first paranormal investigator, would prove to be an irresistible draw for viewers and inspire a weekly dramatic television series which debuted in 1974.
A legend returns. Now, after more than three decades out of print, Kolchak's creator Jeff Rice has released the original novels which sparked the television phenomenon! At last, The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler are together in one volume: The Kolchak Papers!
Twenty-one years before Kolchak inspired Chris Carter to create The X-Files, there was only one paranormal investigator. Now fans everywhere can relive the adventures of Carl Kolchak in this single, remarkable volume!

Johnny Heller starts reading and just carries the listener away. For those who saw the 1970s televised series this audio version will carry you right back to Darrin McGavin's tough reporter Carl Kolchak. I'm not a vampire fan but I enjoyed the story and the abridged history of vampires I did not find the 2nd attached book nearly as good :-(

Love that Kolchak

This is great fun. It captures the tone of the original series and Johnny Heller is the perfect narrator for it.
