A body on a golf course . . . A casket in a cellar . . . A creepy castle on a hill . . . Is there a “vampire killer” running loose in Transylvania?
Nick Caden is a normal teen with a “supernatural” knack for finding trouble and solving paranormal mysteries. After solving the mysterious disappearance of Billy the Kid’s “ghost” in Deadwood, Nick lands a job as a roving reporter for The Cool Ghoul Gazette, a website on paranormal or supernatural disturbances. Now Nick wonders: Is there a “vampire killer” running loose in Transylvania?
When the editor sends Nick to investigate a murder in Transylvania, North Carolina, the young super sleuth finds a corpse with fangs, bite marks and a stake driven through the heart. If Nick proves vampires are real, his job as an investigative journalist is set for life. Except Nick isn’t convinced vampires are real.
But once he begins to peel back the clues surrounding the murder Nick finds his new job is not only dangerous but could suck the life out of him.

The Caden Chronicles are appropriate for mature sixth grade readers. Other parents may choose seventh or eighth grade, due to the fact that Nick IS solving a murder.
