And Markus, whose life as an albino has lead him into the bizarre desire for status as one of the city's vampire types. And, a young Asian scientist whose unusual blood type makes her a target these same wanna be-vampire types.
I was impressed with how the author managed to connect these wildly divergent characters into one intersection. There are no heroes here... eveyone is flawed.. This was a VERY satisfying read
This incredibly researched novel smacks of the kind of detail one finds in the character development and page-turning excitement of John Grisham. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this book and found myself going back several times to some of the more esoteric "nuggets" about nano-science, stem-cell research and paramedic studies. But wait...there's more! Wyoming cowboys. Vampire cults. Tattooed pole dancers. Russian mobsters dealing in illegal body parts. A love story. Tidbits of Chinese, Tibetan and Indian culture.
Kamm weaves together a story intersecting a young and idealistic paramedic, a wanna be sociopathic vampire, a Chinese exchange student and Russian mobsters. As strange as that might sound it works, and captures your attention and imagination. From the Pacific Coast Highway to UCLA to Hollywood I smiled with recognition at the collision of the vastly different worlds ably described by Kamm. Code Blood is fun
