The Ultimate Secret. The Ultimate Agent. Nathaniel Cade returns.
For 140 years, Nathaniel Cade has been the President's Vampire, sworn by a blood oath to protect the President and America from their supernatural enemies. Cade's existence is the most closely guarded of White House secrets: a superhuman covert agent who is the last line of defense against nightmare scenarios that ordinary citizens can only dream of.
When a new outbreak of an ancient evil - one that Cade has seen before - comes to light, he and his human handler, Zach Barrows, must track down its source. To 'protect and serve' often means settling old scores and confronting new betrayals . . . as only a century-old predator can.

Given the popularity of vampires, it is not surprising that they are appearing more frequently in crime and thriller titles, either as detectives or villains. The latest is Christopher Farnsworth's fast-moving thriller Blood Oath, which features vampire Nathaniel Cade, a Secret Service agent sworn to protect the American president from supernatural threats.
