The Shake

Selected for their "Best of 2011" list, here's what Kirkus Reviews had to say:

• "...contemplative but lean and stylish..."

• "...this intriguing narrative blend of philosophy and crime fiction."

• "...succeeds on numerous levels ... simultaneously thought-provoking and relentlessly entertaining."

• "An utterly readable fusion of vampire fiction and labyrinthine whodunit powered by a highly intelligent narrative containing deep existential speculation and numerous philosophical references; Anne Rice meets Dashiell Hammett at a Zen Buddhist monastery."
