From the author of My Best Friend's Exorcism comes a new supernatural horror-thriller that centers around a women's book club that must protect its suburban community from a mysterious and handsome stranger who turns out to be a blood-sucking fiend.
Patricia Campbell's book club isn't your normal book club. Instead of classic literature they binge on true-crime and suspenseful fiction, debating the fine points of FBI's siege of Waco and whether or not Ann Rule should have known her friend Ted Bundy was a killer. So when children start disappearing and mysteriously dying in a nearby neighborhood and all signs point to their suave and evasive neighbor, Patricia must convince her friends to help her do something. But no amount of true-crime reading could have prepared the group for what is really going on and soon they are the only people standing between the monster they've invited into their homes and their unsuspecting community.
Set in the early 90s in Charleston, South Carolina, The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix is a rollercoaster ride of unbelievable supernatural events as well as timely social commentary that will keep you turning pages long into the night. ~ Reviewed by Siobhan Egan, Reference Staff
