I enjoyed Hunter’s first book, which combined two vastly different worlds—the world of undead vampires and world financial markets. He’s back with NIGHT TRANSFER, the second book in the series. Here’s the pitch:
In this follow-up to “Night Market” the Russian East meets the Wild West when Andrew Kirkland and his friends engage their Undead enemy Graf von Borbek not once, but twice.
After Andrew, Arkady and Veronica unravel Borbek’s plot to use the monk Rasputin to destabilize Russia and take her out of the war in 1916, Borbek reverts to his fallback plan: secretly financing the revolution of Lenin. But when he loses control of the situation and a civil war breaks out, he turns to Andrew and Arkady for help.
Their task: steal half of Russia’s gold reserves, the largest in the world.
If they fail, the stakes are unthinkably high. Borbek will set off a pandemic of Transformation among the nearly 70,000 members of the Czech Legion, who control the Trans-Siberian Railway and guard the gold, unleashing them on humans as an Undead army.
To keep hundreds of millions of rubles in gold out of Borbek’s hands and save the Czechs, Andrew strikes out on his own, deceiving both friend and enemy alike in a dangerous game that turns the careful investor and trader into a gambler and confidence man straight out of the Old West.
