The Bashful Vampire Murder begins where most vampire tales end: The defense attempts to prove that vampires exist and the homicide was justified. Only the resourcefulness and savvy of the tough cynical detective stand between justice and the killer being allowed to walk.

In the Comic Book Murders, the two flatfoots run the gamut of superhero and villain suspects, from Captain America and the Caped Crusader to the Joker and Firebug until outstanding police work and dogged persistence lead them to the unlikely killer. On the way, we get to visit a kinetic comic book convention, the backstreets of Hollywood, and a firebombing in Westwood on Halloween eve. How does The Bashful Vampire Murder differ from other novels about vampires?
Where did you get the idea for The Bashful Vampire Murder? What would people think? Would there be a trial, etc.? And I just took it from there.

That would have to be, the original Dracula. I just loved Bela Lugosi and his campy accent. He set the standard for vampires. Frey spins this in a thoroughly humorous way through witty language and a series of mindboggling characters. For instance, the book opens up with the descendant of Van Helsing--a dentist--killing a civilian because he believes that the civilian is a blood-sucking vampire who has attacked innocent bystanders. Essentially, the barebones of the plot juxtaposes a jury that feels that the series of killings of supposed vampires are not homicides, but rather justifiable homicides.
Professor Von Klotz states, an academic well versed in the vampire world, states, "When a person commits a justifiable homicide, they are not guilty of a criminal offense. Featuring a slew of superheroes and villains, including but not limited to the Joker, Mr.
All in all, this is a must read. Bob Frey's narrative is one-of-a-kind and entertains on many different levels. As the characters are bombarded by constant chaos, readers will laugh their way through Frank Callahan's encounters. The two stories in this double book, The Bashful Vampire Murder and the Comic book Murders are thoroughly entertaining. Frey does a great job of grabbing the reader's attention and keeping it until the very last word.
The stories, while dealing with murder most horrible, are also at times very funny, and Frey's wit and humour lift his writing to a level rarely found in detective novels. The murder stories themselves are also refreshingly different, dealing with, in the first tale, the popular subject of vampires, and in the second, with comic book heroes and villains. The protagonist, Detective Frank Callahan is an intriguing and likable character. Unusually, perhaps, for the hero of a murder story, Frank is gay, which adds an interesting twist, although I would like to see a little more development of the character, his personal life with his partner and his history which would add more depth and increase the reader's involvement with the man behind the detective.
That said, the character is well drawn as far as it goes, certainly enough to engage the reader and to enlist our empathy. If you are looking for a really entertaining, light read for this summer holidays, this two for one package will make the ideal beach companion. The Bashful Vampire Murder was entertaining and a totally different take on a fan favorite - the vampire murder!
Only this time, the vampires are listened to and the reader learns from them, almost going so far as to have sympathy for the vampire. Frey comes dangerously close to convincing his reader that vampire killings are a necessity and not something to be feared or grossed out by! The Comic Book Murders, Frey's second story, is a great detective whodunit that does not disappoint! Each clue that Frey provides, finally ending with an unlikely killer, is unique and page turning all at the same time!
