"An Entertaining Vampire Who-done-it"
Richard d'Orleans became a vampire during the medieval
times in Normandy. Richard knew almost from the start that
he is not an evil person, but actually over the centuries
loved (literally and figuratively) women.
In the present in Toronto, he goes by the name of Richard
Dun. He has vowed to keep safe many a mortal including his
godchildren but especially his beloved Stephanie married to
CEO Luis Trujillo. When the emergency e-mail from
Stephanie informs him that Alejandro found her, Richard
immediately stops everything, including sleep, to fly to
Texas to keep his beloved and her family safe. He is too
late as everyone except maybe Michael is dead. He will
track down the killer starting with Alejandro and enact
vengeance, vampire style.
HIS FATHER'S SON is an entertaining vampiric who-done-it
that is reminiscent of the Forever Knight TV show. The
story line is fast-paced and filled with action that is
interrupted at times with flashback to Richard's past.
These trips back through Richard's life provide insight
into the character. Thus, the reader who wants action to
the nth degree will feel a bit disoriented while those who
relish deeper understanding of the hero will find the past
enlightening. Nigel Bennett and P.N. Elrod have written an
entertaining tale regardless of how much blood the reader
desires to envision.
