I have to say, I liked this book even more than its predecessor, BLIND SHADOWS. There was really no place to pause during the action, and a certain character from many of Jim Moore's other books, also got several mentions. :) The storyline was fairly straight on this one, with a few minor side stories added in. The characters of Wade Griffin and Sheriff Carl Price are a great combination. Their supernatural encounters somehow manage to differ from every other story that you've read out there, ch ...more

Congregations of the Dead is a fast-paced crime thriller with both real-world and supernatural criminals being pursued by small-town sheriff Carl Price and his best friend, private investigator Wade Griffin. The supernaturals are vampires: evangelical vampires, a whole church-full of them, and they believe their form of “eternal life” is a gift from God. This is an action-packed novel that works well as both crime fiction and as horror literature. I’m looking forward to the next novel in this se ...more

The authors, in their 2nd book, have taken the protagonists featured in the 1st book, and have dropped them in the midst of another horrific adventure (with a side-role for the adversaries featured in the previous book, as well). The story is more fast-paced, the dialogues are more enriched with the southern drawl and laconic humour, and the characters remain true to their images that we, the readers of the first book, have juxtaposed upon them. The in-jokes referring to the works of the giants ...more

Really, really cool good ol' boys detective/cop team of Georgian tough guys taking on a group of vampires. REAL vampires, too, not these stupid sparkly things so common in teenage romance novels.
HIGHLY recommended.

Outstanding sequel that adds to the original and cries out for more to come.

Congregations of the Dead is the second novel by James A. Moore and Charles R. Rutledge featuring the duo of sheriff Carl Price and private investigator Wade Griffin.

Price and Griffin are investigating real world issues – missing girls, forced prostitution and other dark, unsavory elements of humanity. Tangentially, they clip the world of the supernatural and find themselves facing a vampire and his congregation, as well as real world criminal organizations.

Add to that an ex-wife (for Price,) wa

This book is great! There is not only a good twist the the vampire premise, but the book is full of action. I highly recommend it and can't wait to read what these guys do next.

Another good tale of Carl and Griffin, only this time it's fighting against a holy roller and his vampire followers.

Not as good as the first novel in the series, but still a fast paced fun read. My biggest complaint is that they need a better editor - lots of errors throughout the entire book.

A pot-boiler of a horror story, with unambiguous characters who have a penchant for dispatching monsters.
