Internationally published horror novelist Edward Lee unleashes his 37th book and his very first vampire novel! When a new couple moves into a New York brownstone, they find their ultimate dream house...until they go into the basement. Suddenly, a macabre nun is seen lurking about, with an entourage of lewd and gibbering homeless women who seem to KNOW what evil secret lurks in the bowels of the old house. As the couples' dreams turn to lust-stained nightmares, and the bodies of missing persons are found impaled, the basement's secret is revealed at last: the remnants of Dracula himself...

Not as an audible book.
The first chapter was good despite the horrible narration. I just could not deal with the narrator long enough to finish the book.
A better narrator. Barry Campbell read this like he was reading a fairy tale to a room full of children.
Sometimes Edward Lee writes like a 13 year old boy. This was one of those stories. They're fun to read, light and silly, but I've discovered that they're not so fun to listen to unless you have a talented and experienced reader. This reader was so bad at interpreting the story and simply horrible at doing female character voices.
No. Lee isn't for everyone - he's sort of an acquired taste - and I don't have friends who would find his writing as enjoyable as I do.
He was simply dreadful at doing female voices. Bad to the point of irritation. It was so distracting that I had to listen to the book in stages. I was interested in the plot, but this reader just frustrated me so much that I couldn't get lost in the story.
I would probably netflix it.
Mr. Lee, you deserved a much better reader. Please do not use Barry Campbell for any of your stories again.
