A smooth prose style and an authentic Big Easy vibe distinguish Tentler's debut. Dr. Rain Sommers, the host of Midnight Confessions, a New Orleans late-night radio talk show, was two years old in 1981 when Gavin Firth, Rain's British guitarist father, murdered her mother, Desiree Sommers, a popular goth singer, then killed himself. Special agent Trevor Rivette of the FBI's Violent Crimes Unit has been hunting a serial killer dubbed "the Vampire" (aka Dante), who's slain five women across the U.S. and is now in New Orleans. The sadistic Dante slashes his victims' throats and leaves a signature rosary just like one Rain's mother wore in some publicity photos. After killing three goth scene teens, Dante targets Rain. While thriller fans will find much that's familiar, from the vampire-like killings to the dependable FBI guy falling for the pretty woman in jeopardy, the shivers are worthy of a Lisa Jackson--Publishers Weekly.
