When vampire hunter Laura Caxton is locked up in a maximum-security prison, the cop-turned-con finds herself surrounded by countless murderers and death-row inmates with nothing to lose and plenty of time to kill.

Caxton’s always been able to watch her own back—even when it’s against a cellblock wall. But soon she learns that an even greater threat has slithered behind the bars to join her. Justinia Malvern, the world’s oldest living vampire, has taken up residence, and her strength grows by the moment as she raids the inmate population like an all-you-can-drink open bar of fresh blood. The crafty old vampire knows just how to pull Caxton’s strings, too, and she's issued an ultimatum that Laura can’t refuse. Now Laura has just 23 hours to fight her way through a gauntlet of vampires, cons, and killers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Smooth…Wellington’s deadpan humor enlivens the satirical goth-gore proceedings as Laura battles the half-dead and their evil leader.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Strange as it may seem, the key to good supernatural fiction is realism. Readers have to believe in the world that has been created in order to suspend their disbelief of the creatures set loose in it, and Wellingtonexcels here…This could easily have dissolved into B-movie stereotype but instead seems intensely researched and utterly believable. The characters are likewise fully formed and consistent…Wellington’s voice continues to grow. Highly recommended for horror and vampire fiction fans.”

    " Another exciting entry in David Wellington's vampire series. I really love the way they are depicted as monsters and not romantic figures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Leigh | 1/5/2014

    " I've heard this is the weakest book in the series. We'll see. Update: excellent story, and a fantastic and totally surprising ending. "

    " Continuing on Wellington's vampire series. At the end of the last novel, the protagonist went to jail. In this novel, we see exactly why it's a bad idea to stick the world's most competent vampire hunter someplace where she can't hunt vampires..... "

    " This book was great! It is not the usual Edward I love you vamp book though. Vamps in this book are mean. So if ur looking for a love vamp romance novel, this isn't ur book. Great job David! "
