Synopsis:
A DYING MAN’S GREATEST TREASURE…

Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, avid collector, is losing his fight against cancer. With weeks to live, a package arrives at the door of his hillside mansion—an artifact he paid millions for…a hominoid skull with elongated teeth, discovered in a farmer’s field in the Romanian countryside. With Shanna, his beautiful research assistant looking on, he sinks the skull’s razor sharp fangs into his neck, and immediately goes into convulsions.

OPENS THE DOOR TO AN ANCIENT EVIL…

A rural hospital. A slow night in the ER. Until Moorecook arrives strapped to a gurney, where he promptly codes and dies.

WHERE DEATH IS JUST THE BEGINNING.

Four well-known horror authors pool their penchants for scares and thrills, and tackle one of the greatest of all legends, with each writer creating a unique character and following them through a vampire outbreak in a secluded hospital.

The goal was simple: write the most intense novel they possibly could.

Which they did.

A Word of Warning:

Within these pages, you will find no black capes, no satin-lined coffins, no brooding heartthrobs who want to talk about your feelings. Forget sunlight and stakes. Throw out your garlic and your crosses. This is the Anti-TWILIGHT.

REVIEW
When elderly, dying, Mortimer Moorecook, retired Wall Street raider, uses an ancient skull(the supposed Dracula Skull) to bite himself, hoping to cure the illness ravaging his body, to say all hell breaks loose would be putting it mildly! He is taken to the hospital, where he completes his transformation and goes on the rampage!

If you’re looking for handsome, romantic vampires, dewy heroines, have a weak stomach, or are in the mood for a nice “cozy”, this is not the book for you. If you’re looking for slam-bang, no holds barred, gory fun, or killer vampire clowns with claws and fangs, then you’re in for a treat!

The Vampire mythos gets a whole new treatment from four stellar talents, Jack Kilborn (J.A. Konrath), Black Crouch, F. Paul Wilson, and Jeff Strand. You’ll cringe and laugh your way through this great read! A very refreshing story just when the vampire genre started to get stale.
