With Teeth

Driving from Denver, CO to Lake Kiowa, TX, I listened to Brian Keene’s WITH TEETH, narrated by Time Winters, about a group of desperate West Virginians who venture into a hollow to scout an excellent place to cook meth and inadvertently stir up a nest of half-starved vampires. Keen draws his characters with depth and compassion, and they continue to unfold in surprising ways to the nail-biting climax. I won’t ruin just how it climaxes, gentle reader, but WITH TEETH is a must-read if you like your vampire yarns with more splatter than sparkle.
