A regional author with a regionally-set book? Indeed:
The vampires of Asheville, North Carolina, want to establish their own clan, but since they owe loyalty to the Master Vampire of New Orleans they must work out the terms with him. To come up with an equitable solution, he sends an envoy with the best bodyguard blood money can buy: Jane Yellowrock.
But when a group of local campers are attacked by something fanged, Jane goes from escort to investigator. Unless she wants to face a very angry mast vampire, she will have to work overtime to find the killer. It's a good thing she's worth every penny.Out as a mass market paperback original from Roc, the book is also on various e-book platforms as well as in digital audiobook:
Narrated by Audible Frontiers, the audiobook runs a bit over 15 hours.
