Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Best Thriller/Suspense Category, 2013

The presidential campaign trail, 2012: A political operative and a volunteer are brutally murdered while caught in a compromising position. Written in their blood on the wall of the crime scene: IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK.

And with that, a centuries-old horror known only as the Boogeyman returns to taunt Nathaniel Cade, the president's vampire. 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.

Wow he does it again!

Would you listen to Red, White, and Blood again? Why?

I already have two times. It's just that great!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot of this book seems really linear at the start but after 20 mins or so you enter a rollercoaster of plot twists and red herrings that leave you guessing about with will happen next.

Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes but only in the first two of The president's vampire books. I feel he does a great job at catching the character of each person in the book and passes this on to the listener in the nuances he uses.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

To Be Continued.

Any additional comments?

If you liked the first or second book even a little you will love this one.

Fave Audible book - bloody great fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm recommending this widely because I enjoyed it so much. Bronson Pinchot's a WONDERFULLY talented narrator; one of the best. He brings Farnsworth's characters vividly to life -- and the writing, the dialog, is FUN. The plot is fast-moving and extremely well-written. You'll be surprised by the sturdy and strong craftsmanship of the novel -- plot twists galore; surprises, page-turning tension, nicely drawn characters... I just loved it.

What other book might you compare Red, White, and Blood to and why?

I've read all three of Chris Farnsworth's Nathaniel Cade books. He's got a goldmine of a series here -- the characters are fresh and the concept innovative. It's sort of like finding the best new fusion cuisine before the rest of the crowd. In terms of surprises and pace and just plain reading (and listening) delight, I'd compare it to Mira Grant's FEED series. (FYI, those are AWESOME on Audible.) Not the same subject matter, but honestly nothing can wreck a great book like a bad narrator -- like with Grant's books, the President's Vampire series has secured a top-notch narrator who "gets it" -- who understands the sheer listening pleasure of a voice that can bring characters to life.

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh, man! The LAST SCENE was such a twist, I was stunned -- and now I'm cursing the publishing gods that make new books take for-ev-er to be released. That's all I'm sayin' -- just get to the end. Wow. (And don't you DARE flip to the back - no peeking.) No Spoiler Alert -- just... wow. I totally didn't see THAT coming!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

They've already nailed it -- thanks Putnam. Check the YouTube trailer.

Any additional comments?

This is the author's third book. I'm rooting for this guy! He is a TALENTED writer -- and I'm a really picky reader and listener. When you're reviewing for an Audible.com title, you're considering a partnership: does the narrator bring the book to life, or does he just slog through it? I HATE when books I enjoy are destroyed by bad narration. Pinchot rocks it, and makes Farnsworth's work play beautifully on the giant screen in your mind. <br/><br/> This is Cinematic with a Capital C. It will make a fabulous film. I generally don't "gush" about books, but this one -- actually this whole series -- just hit me with sheer delight. Even if you'd never think of reading a "vampire book" -- at least check out the promo bit for this; you'll be surprised. It's such a neat tweak to interweave vampire lore with modern-day politics, and it just plain works. But overall, it's just plain and simply great writing. This is fun, fast-paced craftsmanship.

Makes politics fun

What did you love best about Red, White, and Blood?

What a great series. Makes the day of sewing go by quickly, but makes interruptions really, really annoying!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Listened at work, in the car, at the grocery store, went home and listened to it instead of watching tv.

Any additional comments?

When they make the movie, Jim Caviezel should play Cade!

I want more!!

This is a vampire series (3 books). You don???t have a doe-eyed female saying bite my neck or a Clan of vampires trying to integrate into society or take over the vamp world. What you do have is a reluctant vampire; he made one mistake and has to attone for it for the rest of eternality
Cane is bounded by a pledged but also believes in fighting for the values of Unites States of America. Cane goes out (with his sidekick Zach) to fight the monsters so you and I can sleep monster free. As a matter of fact, he is sooo good we don???t even know there are monsters. So we have got espionage, vamps, politics, the values of ???Red, White and Blue??? (our flag) and a vampire who does not understand 21st century colloquialisms.

You get the usual Cane stuff, machinations within the oval office to get rid of Cane. Just like the Joker always comes back to get his revenge upon Batman. Cane has his own nemesis who is stabbing at his heart with a pointy stick.

Can't Wait for Book Number Four

I'm selective about my vampire reading because I don't like the new stuff that's popular today, so I was thrilled to find this series.

Blood Oath and The President's Vampire were very good, but Christopher Farnsworth really outdid himself with Red, White, and Blood.

I never talk to my books, but I found myself talking to Cade a couple of times, "yes, you can ... what's wrong with you ... do it".

The first thing out of my mouth when I heard the ending was, WHAT?! and I proceeded to scan the internet to see if there is any sign when book number four will be released.

I'm loving this series!

A great series, the "Dexter" of Vampires

Would you consider the audio edition of Red, White, and Blood to be better than the print version?

The narration by Bronson Pinchot is outstanding, I had to go back and look if it was THAT Bronson Pinchot. He makes an already mesmerizing story Ultra-mesmerizing

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nathaniel Cade, he is a GOOD vampire, what else do you need to know?

What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His pacing is perfect, he distinguishes each character without tricks, he is the voice that anyone would want for their own internal narrator if they were reading it themselves

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending, in the epilogue (not giving that away)

Any additional comments?

Bronson Pinchot should narrate of every other audible book, okay, maybe that is overdoing it, but he should take turns with John Lee, Pete Bradbury and Ron Perlman. The Nathaniel Cade series is not the typical "Twilight" spawned romantic vampire drivel being churned out for pubescent goth girls. This is a story with intelligence that you can sink your teeth into.

Great combination Bronson Pinchot & Nathaniel Cade

What made the experience of listening to Red, White, and Blood the most enjoyable?

This is the third book in the series and I can't remember many that I like better. Great characters, performance and stories. Please write faster Mr. Farnsworth. You've done the near impossible, ended a great book and set us up for an even better one!!!

Bloody good combo of Horror, Humor and History

This is my favorite series when compared to those starring Mitch Rapp, Court Gentry, Longmire, and Dave Robicheaux, so that says a lot. I love the tongue in cheek humor Zack brings the the stories and intense action sequences interspersing the suspense. I do all my running to audio books and these three books have made me run extra miles. Do yourself a favor and listen to them all.
