The author's first novel. Vampires.

''the best first novel I've read in a long time: an audacious and heady mixture of vampires, ghosts, goddesses and psychopaths'' (Neil Gaiman). ''Atkins's background as a writer of artistic splatter movies - he worked on the first Wishmaster film and three Hellraiser films--is obvious in this fast-paced horror-suspense novel, first published in the U.K. in 1992. A serial killer who signs the word Morningstar in the blood of his decapitated victims is stalking the streets of San Francisco. Donovan Moon, a flat-broke freelance journalist, gets a tip from a friend that Morningstar's crimes are marked by one other notable detail: his victims are all staked through the heart, killed as legend says vampires must be slain. A fortuitous phone call takes Moon to the penthouse apartment of Jonathan Frost, highly respected real estate developer--who also claims to be Morningstar, aka Matador (the Spanish for ''slayer''). Frost dreams of a hunter on his trail, and fears he will not survive their meeting. He offers Moon $50,000 to write his life story if he dies'' (Publishers Weekly).
