Praise for Jon F. Merz:
"Lawson is more like Jason Bourne than Dracula, making this a vampire mystery with broad appeal." – Booklist
"A powerful novel by a man who knows the turf already." -NYT Bestselling author Robert. B. Parker
"Jon F. Merz's novels move at a break-neck pace, twisting through a landscape of thrills and terror." – Douglas Clegg, author of The Infinite and The Priest of Blood
"...a fine stalking session in vampire-noir land...a series and talented writer I'll be sticking with all the way." – Mort Castle, author of The Strangers and On Writing Horror
Praise for Jon F. Merz's THE KENSEI (A Lawson vampire Novel #5):
"If James Bond, True Blood and Kill Bill created a mutant hybrid of a book, it would be The Kensei. A bullet train slice 'em, dice 'em mixture of action, suspense, and vampire ninjas. Did I mention vampire ninjas?" – Jason Pinter, bestselling author of The Fury and The Darkness
"The Kensei is an action novel with real bite. Vampires, Yakuza killers, crooks and animal-monster hyrbids. Jon F. Merz brings his A-game and then ratchets it up to a whole new level of supernatural action. Highly recommended!" – Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The Dragon Factory and Patient Zero
"In The Kensei, Jon F. Merz seamlessly welds gritty detail with myth and legend to create a thrill ride into the shadow-world lurking beneath modern Japan. Lawson's fight against evil has bone-crunching authenticity. Plus, it has vampires, ninjas, and vampire ninjas. What more could anyone ask?" – Christopher Farnsworth, author or Blood Oath
