About Red, White, and Blood
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.
“Christopher Farnsworth’s premise—that the presidents of the U.S. have, starting with Andrew Johnson, had a vampire at their beck and call—is simply fun. And in Farnsworth’s strongest book yet in the Nathaniel Cade series, Cade encounters an old enemy he’s killed over and over in various guises…none other than the Boogeyman. The ingenious part of the book (using various notorious serial killers and their quotes to confirm the existence of such a creature) is—well, I’m envious. Cade continues to be one of modern literature’s most frightening vampires, and this is an excellent read.”—Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“[A] high-octane…supernatural thriller…Farnsworth keeps the twists and explosive violence coming, keeping readers in suspense until the very last page.”—Publishers Weekly
