       Additional Information  
      Linda Grant says that her latest Catherine Sayler mystery began when her real-life daughter Megan announced one night, "I'm going to Cal to play the vampire game. I might be late." Thanks to Grant's parental instincts (and her sharply-honed writing skills), Vampire Bytes is such a perfect Polaroid snapshot of how affluent teenagers spend their time that future scholars might well wind up studying it for clues the way researchers today dig into Chandler and Hammett for insights into 1930s and '40s lifestyles. LARP--live action role-playing--seems like lots of fun, and its young fans certainly get more exercise than they would sitting in front of a computer screen as they act out various fantasy games. But when the games turn deadly, Sayler has to use her patented combination of pragmatic detection and feisty determination to protect the role-players. Other Sayler sorties in paperback include Blind Trust, Lethal Genes, Love Nor Money, and A Woman's Place.
