“Takers” Wins 2012 Global Ebooks Award!
We are very proud of Chris for this well-deserved win! We’re also celebrating it as a very good omen for the future of Plotfish Press, since “Takers” was also the first book out of the gate for our publishing company!
“Takers” is the story of LAPD Police Detective Kel Langston, a loner who specializes in hunting serial killers until one night he becomes a victim himself. He survives – only to find out he’s been turned into a monster, stuck halfway between the living and the dead. And now Kel’s hunting Takers, a kind of vampire humans don’t even know exist – and don’t know how to kill. Because with Takers, your blood is only the beginning…
