Summary

Summary

It's a routine assignment for the veteran correspondent and cameraman - a feature about the tourist boom in Transylvania, Dracula's old stamping grounds. But it's modern human vultures, not ancient vampires, that they run into in Romania. The real story is of murder and politics and of old communists becoming capitalist criminals. It's a tale of subtle horrors, suspense and black humor.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Former CBS news correspondent Bert Quint's second novel, the testosterone-heavy thriller Transylvania Red, has "less angst and more fun" than his Rough Cut from a Bygone War: it's the story of a network news team hitting the Romanian pavement for a story on a vampire theme park. But the reporting gets dirty not to mention dangerous as the team uncovers murder, avarice and unscrupulous political wheeling and dealing, and also learn that modern-day capitalists can be at least as scary as centuries-old bloodsuckers.
