Lawson, an elite Fixer faces his oldest enemy Cosgrove, in Boston to resurrect an ancient vampire god. Aided by the mysterious Talya, Lawson has one chance to stop Cosgrove.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

Meet Lawson: vampire by birth, Fixer by trade. His mission: preserve the secret existence of vampires by any means necessary. There’s just one problem - his oldest enemy Cosgrove is back, killing humans and threatening to unleash an ancient unholy evil. Can Lawson stop Cosgrove and still adhere to the very laws he protects by not falling in love with a beautiful human assassin named Talya?

LAWSON.

A cynical, wise-cracking vampire charged with protecting the Balance - the secret existence of a race of LIVING vampires that have evolved alongside humanity for thousands of years.

A FIXER.

Part-spy, and part-commando — James Bond with fangs. Lawson mixes shrewd cunning with unmatched lethality to get his job done. He tries his best to dismantle conspiracies, dispatch bad guys, and live long enough to get home.

COSGROVE.

The name’s enough to make Lawson go ballistic. The last time they tangled, Cosgrove butchered fifty people. Now he’s back in Boston and the Council wants him dead. But Cosgrove has other plans.

TALYA.

An ex-KGB assassin with secrets of her own, and skills to match Lawson, she wants revenge and doesn’t care who knows it.

THE SARGOTH.

An ancient legend. A whispered myth. And if Cosgrove has his way…an inevitable reality.

This is the first book in the Lawson Vampire series, originally published back in 2002. This book also contains an excerpt from THE INVOKER (A Lawson Vampire Novel #2) and runs approximately 81,000 words. The author’s website is http://www.jonfmerz.net

Praise for Jon F. Merz:

“Lawson is more like Jason Bourne than Dracula, making this a vampire mystery with broad appeal.” —Booklist

“A powerful novel by a man who knows the turf already.” -NYT Bestselling author Robert. B. Parker

“Jon F. Merz’s novels move at a break-neck pace, twisting through a landscape of thrills and terror.” — Douglas Clegg, author of The Infinite and The Priest of Blood

“…a fine stalking session in vampire-noir land…a series and talented writer I’ll be sticking with all the way.” — Mort Castle, author of The Strangers and On Writing Horror

Praise for Jon F. Merz’s THE KENSEI (A Lawson vampire Novel #5):

“If James Bond, True Blood and Kill Bill created a mutant hybrid of a book, it would be The Kensei. A bullet train slice ‘em, dice ‘em mixture of action, suspense, and vampire ninjas. Did I mention vampire ninjas?”—Jason Pinter, bestselling author of The Fury and The Darkness

“The Kensei is an action novel with real bite. Vampires, Yakuza killers, crooks and animal-monster hyrbids. Jon F. Merz brings his A-game and then ratchets it up to a whole new level of supernatural action. Highly recommended!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The Dragon Factory and Patient Zero

“In The Kensei, Jon F. Merz seamlessly welds gritty detail with myth and legend to create a thrill ride into the shadow-world lurking beneath modern Japan. Lawson’s fight against evil has bone-crunching authenticity. Plus, it has vampires, ninjas, and vampire ninjas. What more could anyone ask?”—Christopher Farnsworth, author or Blood Oath
