Vampires On The Run: A Quinnie Boyd Mystery

By C.M Surrisi

Two suspicious writers from New York City arrive in Quinnie Boyd’s Maine town of Maiden Rock. They claim to be the confidants of a vampire count, sharing his stories with the world. But after some local animals meet untimely ends, Quinnie wonders if the

Quinnie’s investigation reveals that the writers aren’t supernatural creatures, but they are hiding out from a pair of bank robbers – after stealing the robbers’ idea for a heist and using it in one of their books. When Quinnie learns that the robbers are in town too, she takes steps to save Maiden Rock’s new residents (even enlisting the nuns for help).

  • Thoughtfully explores middle-grade themes (conflicts with parents, early crushes) within a compelling mystery plot, featuring a strong voice and clever, resourceful female lead.
  • Hilarious peek at life in a small vacation town and a totally unique riff on the vampire book trend of the previous several years.
