Cool Blood Walk is the second novel from Red Rattle Book horror writer Jack Swift. His highly praised debut novel Undead Underneath told the tale of how the British Government created a zombie apocalypse. Jack added a never to be forgotten twist to the zombie genre. Cool Blood Walk is a vampire tale and, like Undead Underneath, has plenty of surprises and vampires but not as we know them. Cool Blood Walk has plenty of style and some surprises.
‘This has knocked the wind out of me.’
‘Don’t come up to Leeds as a vampire. I won’t let you in the house.’
Dot has three jobs, not enough money, a fragile daughter Sarah and a judgemental mother Binnie. Her ex-husband Tom is murdered, and Adam a colleague disappears mysteriously. This means more much needed money for Dot. But the police are interested in Dot and what happened to the two men. Dot meets Chris a handsome young man. Chris wants to know what has happened to Adam. Binnie notices that Chris is a little strange. She buys garlic and a crucifix. Dot, though, will need more than old superstitions to avoid destruction and dangerous seduction.
‘A marvellous slow burn and very different vampire tale.’
Cool Blood Walk is available to buy on Amazon and in all good bookshops.
