Inhaltsangabe zu „Late Bite: TV Talk Show Star or Killer? (The Toronto Chronicles Book 1)“ von John Matsui

Lawyer Al Hamblyn's career and personal life hit rock bottom when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity lands on his lap – the criminal defence of a real, live, blood sucking vampire. Facing off against him is a crack team of prosecutors armed with a mountain of evidence from nine separate attacks. Hamblyn's greatest challenge, however, is harnessing his own fears in the face of a client who is the thing of nightmares.

    Late Bite: TV Talk Show Star or Killer? (The Toronto Chronicles Book 1)

    Each time I think the vampire genre is dead, a new author comes along to prove me wrong with a revival. Late Bite is a suspenseful mixture of thriller and horror, but also with pinch of humor. The first half presents the reader with a well-crafted legal thriller, albeit with a very unusual accused. After all charges are withdrawn, Dragul Mangorian starts his career as a late night talk show host. This short episode is the lightest part of the book and partly resembles a comedy. But shortly after the story turns into a very dark and action-packed horror scenario, with lots of blood and a rising body count. The end came as a big surprise with a very clever and completely unsuspected twist, questioning everything and everyone you read about before. At first, I was unsure what to make of this wild puzzle, but in the end everything fit together perfectly.The writing was excellent, conveying the varying moods along the story-line and doing an exceptionally good job at characterization. Dragul Mangorion unquestioningly was the most fascinating character with lots of secrets, and I could never quite figure out his motives. On the opposite, his lawyer/partner Al Hamblyn was a typical anti-hero, both in physical appearance and his modest demeanor, so it was easy to sympathize with him.If you like a clever plot with a twist, give this one a try. Highly recommended!(I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
