Fast paced and fun, as we tag along with our Favorite Vampire Killer, Laura Caxton. This time she is going up against JUSTINIA MALVERN, the world's oldest living Vampire. And Laura has just 23 hours to close out this final chapter in this saga...but is it really over? ( )

23 Hours is the fourth book in the Laura Caxton series, about a State Trooper who becomes a vampire-hunter.

This story takes place in a prison, where Laura is an inmate.

The vampires are scary, and the action is good, but Laura is not a very sympathetic character - she's actually pretty socially retarded. She is a good kick-ass character, and the story moves quickly; if you are after a quick vampire action story this book is a good choice. ( )

Book is full of very good visual context. Overall Wellington was able to keep my attention with the story and make me not want put the book down. Cleaver premise to have a vampire take over a prison... ( )

When vampire hunter Laura Caxton is locked up in a maximum-security prison, the cop-turned-con finds herself surrounded by murderers and death-row inmates. But soon she learns that an even greater threat--Justinia Malvern, the world's oldest living vampire--has taken up residence, and her strength grows by the moment as she raids the inmate population like an open bar. The crafty old vampire knows just how to pull Caxton's strings, and she's issued an ultimatum that Laura can't refuse.… (more)
