When a bullet is shot into the coffin containing a corpse lying in state at a funeral home from a mysterious cloaked perpetrator, the odd circumstances alerted NYPD’s homicide detectives to take notice. The obvious question of who would want to shoot someone who was already dead prevails; as other details emerge alluding to the rituals and beliefs of something out of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Using silver through the heart, wood stakes to the chest, garlic in the mouth and even a silver crucifix in the coffin, the detectives find these techniques used to keep a vampire rising from the dead as they exhume bodies linked to the trail of finding the serial killer. With twists and turns like a Boa constrictor, the venomous plot unfolds and transports the reader from a modern day high-tech crime fighting novel into the dark side of cult practices within the mind of a serial murderer fixated on revenge.
Author Theodore J. Cohen reaches into the depth of surrealism and disbelief with certain aspects of the book. “There’
Dect. Louis Martelli is continued to be developed as a character, but Cohen takes a consorted effort to bring his partner Sean O’Keeffe to life. “One of the greatest things about being a novelist is being able to create characters out of whole cloth, and once created, breathe life into them,” said the author. “In some ways, he’s Martelli’s alter ego, but in other ways, the two have much in common. It’s clear that they care about each other and, importantly, work well as a team. They’re both reckless to some extent, but in different ways.”
