Melody Knight: A Vampire’s Tale, by Tony Lindsay
In this unique cross between a spy thriller and a vampire novel, Melody Knight has lived thirty-seven years as a vampire. Her involvement in a CIA assignment exposes a $51 billion human organ market, and the storyline climaxes when a weapon is developed that returns a vampire to being human. The reader experiences both the life of a CIA operative and life within a vampire family.
Melody’s vampire family is introduced in flashbacks, and each member has their own issues. The Knights are presented as a blended family with all the peculiarities that accompany those unions, and it is through her experiences with her vampire family that Melody develops an acceptance and respect for humanity.
Melody Knight: A Vampire’s Tale by author Tony Lindsay deals with the origin of American vampires, and a mystery/thriller edge develops when murdered children, human organ farming, and CIA corporate gains are uncovered. Melody’s growth from a depressed human bride (her fiancé was gunned on her wedding day) to a vampire that cares about humanity is shocking.
