Alex Bledsoe brings us a thrilling tale of vampires and vengeance in Girls with Games of Blood.

The old song warned of the beautiful Bolade sisters, Patience and Prudence, whose undying rivalry was said to stretch even beyond the grave. But Count Rudolfo Zginski has never heard this song. A suave Continental vampire, staked to death more than sixty years ago, he has only recently risen again to stalk the nights of Memphis, Tennessee, circa 1975. Although new to the modern world, he has quickly developed a taste for its luxuries—in particular, high-speed automobiles.

Yet the seventies are not without their perils, even for so cunning a predator. Zginski’s pursuit of a cherry 1973 Ford Mustang brings him into conflict with a legendary redneck sheriff with a short temper and a big baseball bat. His fascination with an enticing undead chanteuse and her equally seductive sister threatens not only his own ageless existence, but that of the small coven of modern-day vampires he has grudgingly taken under his wing. Zginski has escaped limbo once, but can he free himself from the tangled web of the girls who play games of blood?

Praise for The Girls with Games of Blood

Praise for Alex Bledsoe

“Hot and sticky and tangy as a slab of Memphis ribs. A trippy vamp-noir seventies feed-fest, complete with the requisite sex, drugs, and vintage rock.”
—E. E. Knight, bestselling author of Vampire Earth on Blood Groove

“Bledsoe effortlessly draws readers into his created world and manages to stay true to both fantasy and mystery traditions.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review on Burn Me Deadly

“Bledsoe’s clever combination of noir and myth makes for an engaging story, and placing investigator Eddy at the center offers a fresh twist…. Fans of Bledsoe’s other blends of fantasy and noir will love his latest, and new readers will be able to jump right in.”
Booklist, starred review on Dark Jenny

“A perfect blend of Arthurian legend and hard-boiled detecting… Bledsoe skillfully combines humor, action, deduction, and emotion to make the material fresh and engaging for fans of both fantasy and noir.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review on Dark Jenny
