Imagine a vampire capable of traveling through time. Now imagine he's ticked off Dracula. Who,it appears, is helping a couple of 'special' private investigators figure out what's going on. And all of this takes place at and in the Grand Canyon.
Without a doubt the most unusual and effective of Saberhagen's novels of vampirism theme. The mystery and palpable menace begun in the first few pages are sustained and building to the final resolution. The trapped, isolated and claustrophobic atmosphere is conveyed so well that its quiet desperation and resulting panic are comparable to that evoked by Kobo Abbe's "The Woman in the Dunes." Both surreal and nightmarish.
