James Scott Byrnsideabout this book: The Strange Case of the Barrington Hills Vampire is a murder-mystery lovers delight, particularly fans of Golden Age Detective novels.
Vampiric murders are happening in the cursed town of Barrington Hills. Detective Rowan Manory and his assistant investigate. As they attempt to solve the case, the reader is encouraged to follow the same clues along the path to the solution.
I'm a lover of impossible crimes, and the ones I include here will not disappoint. The murderer walks through walls, it leaves no footprints in the snow, and (YES!) it bites its victims on the neck. How could it not be a vampire?
In researching weird, wild, early Americana, I was fascinated with vampire scares and their origins. A lot of that research ended up in the book.
The book has many easter eggs for fans of John Dickson Carr and some of the other big names from early detective novels. In using equal parts horror and humor, this novel is guaranteed to entertain.
