Book Review – The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

Cover image for The Southern Book Club's guide to slaying vampires : a novel / Grady Hendrix.

By Grady Hendrix.

A true crime – obsessed, bored housewife realises her neighbour is a vampire preying on local children. When the police won’t do anything she recruits her friends from book club to take the monster down. This book is magnificent – it’s like Buffy Summer’s mum was the vampire slayer. And it even captures all the campy horror and gore of 80s and 90s vampire movies.
