Blood Game by Iris Johansen

I'm not quite sure how to categorize this book. It starts out with a serial murderer who drains his victims of blood but veers off into a fantasy with visions of spirits and people who have supernatural powers. It wasn't a great plot but was good for a quick read. Eve Duncan has been searching for her daughter's killer for many years, along with her husband Joe Quinn, a cop who she met when her daughter first disappeared. She has been haunted by the mystery, literally, for many years, having seen visions of her daughter during that time. Now Joe is seeing ghosts, spirits of those who were killed by a psychopath who thinks that drinking blood will help him become a vampire.
Wow, the plot sounds much worse when I write it out. Really, it was a rather entertaining book as long as you don't think too much about it, and it was pretty clean except for the violence of the murders and the creepiness of the killer drinking the blood. I would rate it PG-13 for some those things and some language.
