Fangland: A Novel

In the annals of business trips gone horribly wrong, Evangeline Harker's journey to Romania on behalf of her employer, the popular television newsmagazine The Hour, deserves pride of place. Sent to Transylvania to scout out a possible story on a notorious Eastern European crime boss named Ion Torgu, she has found the true nature of Torgu's activities to be far more monstrous than anything her young journalist's mind could have imagined.

Publisher's Summary

An acclaimed novelist and former 60 Minutes producer grandly reinvents the Dracula epic in the halls of a certain television newsmagazine.

In the annals of business trips gone horribly wrong, Evangeline Harker's journey to Romania on behalf of her employer, the popular television newsmagazine The Hour, deserves pride of place. Sent to Transylvania to scout out a possible story on a notorious Eastern European crime boss named Ion Torgu, she has found the true nature of Torgu's activities to be far more monstrous than anything her young journalist's mind could have imagined. The fact that her employer clearly won't get the segment it was hoping for is soon the very least of her concerns.

Written in the form of diary entries, e-mails, therapy journals, and other artifacts of early-21st-century American professional-class life, compiled as an informal inquest by a very interested party, Fangland manages both to be a genuinely - in fact triumphantly - frightening vampire novel in the grand tradition. And, yes, a biting commentary on the way we live and work now.

Love in vein: listen to more vampire fiction.

    "I've listened to worse..."

    but not my much. Really good narration and the writer has a gift for description. Unfortunately, the writer also has a talent for dragging-out a plot premise.

    "bad weird"

    This book was weird and not good weird. I tried to get into it but the story line was just so strange and hard to wrap my brain around. I kept finding myself turning it off.

    "unusual subject matter"

    Fangland was not as I exspected. I feel it was a little long but the story being told is worth the dead spots. I have read many "vampire" novels and this is the most unusual I have read. The story itself is engrossing and at the same time there is a whole NEW spin on vampires, so the length can be forgiven.

    "Boring"

    I finally had to give up half way thru. This was truly boring.
