Bloodless by Preston & Child

Agent Pendergast is a fictional character appearing in novels by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

He’s a brilliant FBI agent who’s maintained his southern manners and accent.

Stoically aloof and eccentric. Polite and charming.

A master of disguise. Speaking many languages.

All in all a fascinating character.

I’d not read any of the 20 novels before trying this 2021 book. I ASSuMEd it was a murder mystery. But should have guessed by the title that it was some kind of horror story.

In the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins—sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire.


But Pendergast’s sidekick in this one — agent Coldmoon — is an unappealing bungler. No Watson.

I doubt I’ll read any more Bloodless by Preston & Child.
