In 1867, two men went missing on a whaling vessel out of Boston Harbor. According to published reports, the ship’s captain found another sailor standing over their corpses, drinking their blood. Tried for murder, the sailor was pardoned by President Andrew Johnson and died in an asylum for the criminally insane.

At least, that’s the cover story. In fact, nineteen-year-old sailor Nathaniel Cade was turned into a vampire. His life was only spared to defend the United States against other “unnatural” threats. Bound in a blood oath by voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, Cade has spent over 140 years in service to the president. He is the ultimate secret agent—battling nightmares before they can break into the daylight world of the American dream.

Zach Barrows is an ambitious twenty-six-year-old White House staffer when his career takes an unexpected turn: he’s assigned to be Cade’s new handler and presidential liaison. Before Zach can get over the shock, he and Cade are sent to investigate a cargo shipment filled with the severed limbs of US soldiers. Zach learns that the world is far stranger—and far more dangerous—than he ever imagined. Their mission reveals the truth about the real Dr. Frankenstein, a shadowy conspiracy within the government, and a plot to attack the US with a gruesome biological weapon: an army of undying, unstoppable killers.

Incredibly clever and compulsively readable, this political thriller is packed with enough action to out-Bourne Jason Bourne.

    " Loved this book. Be warned, there is some language. This book imagines that a vampire serves the office of the president of the USA. While the story is fine, my favorite bits were the beginning of each chapter that either 1) explain parts of hidden US history that the vampire was involved with (ever wonder what's on the missing minutes of the Nixon Watergate tapes?) or 2) gives us parts of an gov't book about the president's vampire including the various tests done on him and how the real thing measures up to various myths. A very creative and engaging book, a vampire book with a monster designed as an apex predator, not a romanticized & softened version of vampires. "

    " I am loving this book. I was a history geek growing up and love when genres blend. The history novel, mixed with a spy novel with a dash of Angel has got me into this book. I am about 29 percent done and I can't wait to get to the end and start reading the next novel. Finished this book and going to download the President's Vampire soon. I think this book would be awesome as a comic book. I think it would fit nicely with Dark Horses horror books like the Goon, BPRD and Hellboy. "

    " I liked this one more than i thought I would at the beginning. The characters draw you in, and it goes cooly supernatural in a nice suspense novel. Plus, who can argue when zombies and Frankenstein get added to a vampire story? Not me! "
