Audiobook sample

An acclaimed novelist and former 60 Minutes producer grandly reinvents the Dracula epic in the halls of a certain television newsmagazine.

In the annals of business trips gone horribly wrong, Evangeline Harker's journey to Romania on behalf of her employer, the popular television newsmagazine The Hour, deserves pride of place. Sent to Transylvania to scout out a possible story on a notorious Eastern European crime boss named Ion Torgu, she has found the true nature of Torgu's activities to be far more monstrous than anything her young journalist's mind could have imagined. The fact that her employer clearly won't get the segment it was hoping for is soon the very least of her concerns.

Written in the form of diary entries, e-mails, therapy journals, and other artifacts of early-21st-century American professional-class life, compiled as an informal inquest by a very interested party, Fangland manages both to be a genuinely - in fact triumphantly - frightening vampire novel in the grand tradition. And, yes, a biting commentary on the way we live and work now.
