I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review.

Perry combined classical Nosferatu lore with contemporary versions to create a completely suspenseful and original supernatural novel with an air of mystery about it. What lends to this mystery are the characters. The focus of the plot seems to be on Leo, but there are hints about the histories of the other characters; however, the bulk of their pasts are not revealed in this installment of the series. I was a bit di

This book really took me by surprise. By the title and the cover, I expected a murder mystery. The blurb seemed to enforce that sentiment. Then I got into the meat of the story and discovered it's so much more! This is an alternate history novel set during the prohibition era, where the twist is that it's a new take on vampire lore. The monsters aren't what they seem and each twist of the plot took me by surprise. After reading it, I almost don't even want to pin it to one genre. It had solid el ...more

A Change in Crime is set in New England, in Fall River MA during the prohibition era. At first glance it is a tale about a boy and the mobsters who killed his family. Upon closer examination it is so much more.

Leo comes home from trying to enlist in the army and finds his house in flames, mobsters outside it discussing the hit and all that he knows is gone. Though he must run for his own life because he hears them talking about finding him and finishing the job, it isn’t long before he comes up

Prohibition Era gangsters turn Dracula! I know. What could be cooler? The fact that I’m familiar with Fall Rivah (river spelled phonetically here for non-New Englanders to pronounce correctly). My boss grew up in that town and I love his stories of working in old textile mills and of the rough streets. I cover the area in my daytime travels, too, so it’s nice to get some local history. I know the vampire stuff isn’t real…

It’s nice to meet some blood suckers that aren’t into trying to meet and ki

Change in Crime By D.R Perry
What can I say about this book except it keeps you on the seat of your pants the whole time.
It is set in the 1020’s when probation was enforced and rumrunners were the norm for gangster and the mafia, there is crime everywhere and then you have the changed. What are they well you must read the novel to find out.
The changed are not your normal everyday monster, though they are referred to as monster. There are your good ones and your evil canning one and a few as old

1920s Italy and supernatural creatures. What more could a girl want?
...Apparently, a lot.
I don't know what it was about this book, but I just did not get into it at all. I had no connection to any of the characters and absolutely zero emotion towards any of the events happening in the plot. If I'm being totally honest, I probably half-assed skimming through 75% of this book, kinda like if I had to read a chapter in a textboo

Taking a break from their more light-hearted paranormal series, the author provides their take on vampires in this thoroughly captivating story set during the Prohibition era. In this case vampires are referred to as Changed or monsters. They're motivated by a sense of family and a thirst for revenge. The book delves initially into the story of Leo, a young man who wants revenge on the local Mob boss who killed his family and feels becoming one of the Changed is the key to this. From there we me ...more

A Change In Crime is an excellent period piece in that the author peppered this prohibition-era story with authentic slang and phrases. It is a preternatural-creature story that is told in a film-noir style. Ms. Perry has entwined classic supernatural lore and 1920’s style organized crime.

Set in Fall River, MA, the story is about a boy named Leo, the mobsters who killed his family, and his plan for revenge. In this tale the monsters are the good guys, and they’re all too happy to help Leo take o

Really wanted to get into this book because the idea sounded great. However as soon as the patriarch was introduced of the "monster" family, I didn't care anymore. I really wanted to like this more, but the monsters were not as interesting as I think they could have been. ...more

D.R. Perry lives in Rhode Island, where all her books are set. Although she's not a native New Englander, once up north she got so inspired she couldn't leave. A wild Northern Muse attacked. D.R. used Typing; it was Super Effective.

D.R. writes all kinds of things. Mostly, they have strange and unusual elements. Not strange isotopes or Strontium or anything like that, but creatures who are people o
