A Mass Murder. A Disappearance. A Cemetery Ransacked.
It looked like another ordinary day in Los Angeles. Then night came...Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angels - it comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determination - and the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.
High above glitter city a deadly contest begins. In the decaying castle of a long-dead screen idol, the few remaining human survivors prepare to face the Prince of Evil and his satanic disciples. Whilst the very forces of nature are called into play, isolating the city from the rest of the world and leaving it at the mercy of the blood-hungry vultures of the night...They Thirst

The Strain + Zodiac + Salem's Lot = They Thirst
Up there with the best! I loved McCammon as an impressionable teen and its great to have a chance to revisit his older books on Audible. This book as all the elements of a traditional vampire novel. A mysterious master figure,a haunted house, a willing mass murderer supplying victims as well as stake wielding, cross bearing, holy water splashing good guys!
Andy Palatazin, the homicide detective, who knows what is happening in Los Angeles but can't get the authorities to believe him.
Palatazin the Hungarian emigre cop. Porter kept up the accent well. This book as a huge cast and they all stood out. From 14 year old boys to eighty year old women, this is a great performance.
Its a slow build up because there are so many characters but when it shifts a gear, its an edge of the seat, white knuckle ride!
For my money, McCammon along with Stephen King and Dean R Koontz were America's horror triumvirate in the 80's and 90's. I couldn't recommend his books They Thirst, Swan Song, Stinger, Wolf's Hour and Boy's Life strongly enough. I'll look forward to listening to these books again. As well as trying McCammon's, Matthew Corbett series.
Need more Garlic!!!
