Publisher's Summary

While fleeing a flood in Mississippi, Rockford Peadlebody dies in a train wreck.
His brother Gerald, his wife Ginger, and son Raymond (a rather dysfunctional lot of half-blood vampires) reach grandpa's estate in Ohio and are surprised that granddaddy Benjamin Peadlebody has also died. They are now heirs to the infamous Peadlebody manor and all its peculiarities including the butler, a reserved, tattooed muscle-man named Richard Cottlebone.
It seems fishy to Gerald that two untimely deaths in the family happened within a week. Yes, Rockford's demise was of his own doing, but Benjamin's? Perhaps the butler knows more than he's letting on?
To prove himself worthy, since he failed to live up to his father's standards while the old vampire was alive, Gerald goes about to unravel the thread of Papa's death. No help comes from Ginger. She's too busy trying to un-vampire herself. And Raymond is in love, but not with his relatives. Gerald soon discovers solving a murder mystery meets with a stone-cold reception.

An Unconventional story

This audiobook is light and fun book and imaginative. I found myself drawn into the story as the characters, each with their own quirks and eccentricities, make their way through their journeys in this novel.
