Frank Baron is a NYC Homicide detective...and a Nightwalker. He would
say that "Nightwalkers are something like Vampires, except we're the good
kind...and we're not dead."
When homeland security learns of the existence of Nightwalkers, they
decide that an army of them would be perfect for the war on terror. They
capture one and manipulate his DNA to make their own undefeatable
soldier. When their creation rebels and begins leaving bodies around, they
make a bargain with Frank to clean up their mess.
Frank completes the mission only to find out that he's of no use to them
I wiped my forehead with the back of my hand and let the lifeless body sink to the cold grass. His blood, warm and thick, slid down my throat, coating my insides. I dropped back onto the park bench and closed my eyes.

Tortorici wins the award for the most interesting protagonist. The thrills are fast and furious in this non-stop action/horror novel. I doubt there's a better writer in this genre.

Blood Bond by Richard Tortorici is a vampire story with a twist. Detective Frank Baron is one of the walking dead, aka a Nightwalker. He had specially made glasses, a ski mask and a fedora to protect him from the direct sunlight. Baron was one of the good guys. Stormy witnessed the death of her mentor Glenda; she feared they would come after her next.
Stormy was staying with Baron until the Society could find her a new mentor. There was more than one type of Vampire. There were those born to be a vampire and those that were created. Now there was a third, the most dangerous type of all...Erebus. For many years the Daywalkers, aka normal people, did not know about the Nightwalker. When Homeland Security found out, they came up with the bright idea of creating a group of super fighters. They messed with the DNA of a Nightwalker and turned him into a not so nice vampire, Erebus. Erebus believes he is God and vengeance is his.
Blood Bond is an entertaining read. It has all the elements I look for in a book: suspense, mystery, thrills, intrigue, danger, car chases, murder and a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Tortorici is a talented author whose characters are multifaceted. Stormy and Frank worked well together; she had an innocence that made her endearing, and Frank was a courageous hero. The plot has twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing to the very last word. This is not your typical vampire story. I believe this is the first book in a new series, and I look forward to the subsequent volumes.
