Description

The presidential campaign trail, 2012. A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: It's Nice to Be Back. And with that, a centuries-old horror returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the president's vampire. Turned into an inhuman predator 145 years ago and bound by blood oath to serve the president, Cade protects the United States from the supernatural enemies that lurk in the dark, waiting for their chance to extinguish humanity. In all that time, Cade has fought one particular evil over and over again: an undying murderer with origins deeply tangled in the occult; the source of urban legends and nightmares across the country; the patron saint of serial killers like Son of Sam, the Zodiac Killer, and Charles Manson. It has gone by many names and guises but is best known by the one that all children instinctively fear: the Boogeyman. Cade has faced the Boogeyman everywhere, from the alleys of nineteenth century New Orleans to Lake Havasu during spring break. Only one thing remains the same: no matter how Cade kills him, the Boogeyman always comes back. When the killer begins targeting the president's people on the campaign trail, Cade and his human handler, Zach Barrows, are tasked with cleaning up the mess before it spills over into the upcoming election. But as the bodies pile up, they find their quarry has evolved. Worse, he has help from new worshippers and an enemy thought dead: Helen Holt, the rogue intelligence operative who nearly killed Zach and Cade on their first case together. Against the backdrop of the 2012 presidential race, with the threat of constant exposure by the media, Cade and Zach must stop the one monster Cade has never been able to defeat completely. And they must do it before the Boogeyman adds another victim to his long and bloody list: the president of the United States himself.

Professional reviews

"While this is not a book for every listener, followers of the President's Vampire series, or the vampire genre in general, will find Bronson Pinchot's voice a treat. Demonstrating again the reasons he has won multiple awards for narration, Pinchot presides over a variety of characters-- male, female, human, and not human--with aplomb. His female voices are a joy, using just a slight lilt rather than straining. Timing, pacing, and subtlety all combine for an engaging listen; you can hear the pleading in the vice president's voice, the coldness in the protagonist's utterances, and the fear in the victims as the Boogeyman attacks. A well-deserved 2013 Audie Award in the Thriller/Suspense category gives credit to Pinchot's ability to mesmerize listeners. M.L.R. 2013 Audies Winner (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
