Since President Andrew Johnson in 1867 pardoned Nathanial Cade the vampire, he loyally has served American presidents in the war against horror (see Blood Oath). However, the Boogeyman has returned; Cade partially defeated this evil centuries ago, but knows how close he came to permanently dying. This “spiritual parasite” has a sinister malevolent teammate as they plan to get to Cade through President Samuel Curtis, his staff and his re-election committee.

Cade and his human liaison Zach Barrows work closely with Secret Service as Curtis campaigns in the Midwest. At the same time, zealot anti Curtis reporter Megan Roark begins to uncover some weird things that could expose Cade. However, Cade knows his prime missions are to destroy his invincible foes and keep Curtis safe even as the incumbent may lose his reelection bid.

The third paranormal Cade thriller (see The President’s Vampire) is an exhilarating taut twisting tale with a stunning great finish. Fast-paced readers observe the 2012 election from a different perspective of an individual who might have problems with voter ID and illegal immigration laws. Gory, this is an entertaining thriller from start to finish.
