Vampir by John Reinhard Dizon

Vampir by John Reinhard Dizon

This book is nothing like I expected! Vampir by is a cross between a crime drama like Law and Order and a cheesy black and white horror film, minus the cheesy parts. The story begins with a news report about Celeste Maher, a prominent NYC lawyer, being arrested as a suspect in the murder of […]
