Christopher Farnsworth’s Blood Oath introduced the world to Nathaniel Cade - a covert operative, ruthlessly cunning fighter, tireless avenger, and vampire. Now Farnsworth’s creation returns the new Cade novel The President’s Vampire – arriving on April 28th from in G. P. Putnam’s Sons.
For nearly 150 years Cade has been bound to serve and protect the President of the United State at all costs. He has also been assigned “handler” Zach Barrows, appointed by the president himself to assist Cade whenever and however necessary.
Administration after administration, Cade has done the bidding of the president and kept the country safe from every manner of supernatural threat imaginable. As a supernatural being himself, Cade thought he knew everything about the occult world and what it could throw at him. He was wrong.
The President’s Vampire begins in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, a tragedy that Cade feels he should have been able to prevent. Itching for revenge, he attempts to kill Osama Bin Laden, only to discover that the terrorist is something other than human. Unfortunately, it’s not the first time Cade has seen something like this. And it won’t be the last.
Cade is about to face the greatest challenge of his unlife: an outbreak of twisted, human-reptilian hybrids who multiply and spread like an epidemic. Insanely fast and voraciously hungry, they will wipe out humanity if unchecked — and some of the most powerful people on the planet seem happy to let them succeed.
Cade and his human handler Zach Barrows must work side by side with a man named Graves and his black-ops team of mercenaries who operate far outside the law. In everything Graves and his team do, they are merciless, barbaric, and completely untrustworthy.
However they are the only means by which Cade and Barrows can hope to gain enough information to have a hope of stopping the bizarre threat to the United States and the world.
Embroiled in a worldwide conspiracy and unable to reach the president, Cade and Barrows are forced to work separately to try to stop the threat… But without each other to rely on, neither one may survive.
