Murder Mystery Thriller as a book genre has its fair share of the target audience. The narratives may have changed in the past decades, but the elements remain largely the same, save for some crossovers between subgenres. Classic works such as Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie, The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, and American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis continue to gain popularity among young readers because of their thrilling storylines. Today, we are going to feature a modern mystery crime novel in the tradition of those mentioned. ReadersMagnet presents The NYC Vampire Murders by Glen C. Carrington.
The NYC Vampire Murders
The NYC Vampire Murders is a 2016 mystery thriller by Glen C. Carrington and is Carrington’s fifth published book. It is a stand-alone novel, just like his previous four mystery/crime thrillers. In its paperback version, The NYC Murders has 444 pages. It is also available in Hardcover and Kindle editions.
The NYC Vampire Murder begins with a series of eerie and strange homicides discovered in New York City. Police find that the bodies of the victims bore neck bite marks, resembling a vampire attack. What is more heinous is that blood from each of the victims has been sucked. In six months, six corpses have been recovered with the same identical features. In a city as big as New York, this will not stay hidden for a long time.
Despite the mayor and the local police’s efforts to keep these murders away from the public eye, time is not on their side. With a body count of one corpse per month, the New York City Mayor decides that outside help is needed if they are to put an end to these gruesome murders. Fearing for a public panic and repercussions on his job security, the mayor brings in someone out of retirement.
Enter Detective William Monroe Lincoln, a retired detective whose experience in high-profile cases is something they could really use at this hour of desperate need. With the help of an expert psychic also coming out of retirement, Detective Lincoln must piece together the clues and confront the “vampire” before he gets to kill another person.
The NYC Vampire Murders is a fast-paced mystery crime narrative without the unnecessary monotonous build up. From the prologue to its few chapters, Carrington immediately introduces us to the main characters at work. It is a story with interesting subplots, all contributing to a fantastic build-up and plot twist. Glen C. Carrington’s The NYC Vampire Murders promises to be an enjoyable read for all mystery crime novels fans.
