Publisher's Summary

Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant, returns with his manic lawyer Topper and his faithful secretary in this prequel to How to Succeed in Evil. Edwin is approached by a vampire, who offers him the prospect of eternal life if Edwin will help him with the troubles the modern world has presented his kind. It's Edwin versus Nosferatu in this insightful satire of the highly exploited vampire genre.

    "best storyteller since Robin Williams"
    Any additional comments?

    Nowhere else have I found such a broad range of voices (except for maybe full audio productions and Robin Williams on a lovely rant).

    After reading the reviews for this one, it’s obvious that the best way to enjoy Patrick McLean is to hear Patrick McLean.

    For all those critical reviews begging for more, it’s a novella, guys. It’s a short, entertaining prequel. It’s supposed to be that way.

    Even though I truly loved the story and want more myself, I do not want to read the story. I want Mr. McLean to tell me the story. So I'll have to wait for more How to Succeed in Evil.

    I haven’t experienced any other book in this series. But apparently, others think the rest of them are even better than this little slice. Alas, I’ll just have to wait. I’ll have to adopt the patience of a vampire. (Wait, maybe I should kidnap Mr. McLean’s lawyer to get what I want. Hmmmm.)

    I love the completely opposite take on vampires here. I mean, the idea of the vampire was a story that was supposed to scare the bejesus out of us, right? Then comes the twentieth century and the vision of the sexy, undeniable vampire. Then comes the twenty- first century where vampires love and sparkle.

    Dark Shadows, the tv show is a bit before my time, but Johnny Depp’s version caught me because, well, Johnny Depp. And all I could see when hearing Barnabas was Johnny’s over the top make up and outdated assumptions of the world.

    Part of me wondered, really sat and wondered, would a vampire have such a hard time adjusting? I mean, even though he’s lived a long time, how hard is it really to roll with the times, especially when you have the time to learn all kinds of things. OK, I’m still rolling that one over in my head.

    At the end of the day, all I have to say is, just listen to Mr. McLean. That’s amazing in itself.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to all my friends. This book is a cure for the current juvenile vampire fetish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Consultation with a Vampire?

    Every time the protagonist and his sidekicks interact with the vampires.


    Which character – as performed by Patrick E. McLean – was your favorite?

    His secretary and the former nanny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed many times and wished I could be as eloquent as Mr. McLean.


    Any additional comments?

    Please, please record the next book in this series. Mr. McLean's writing style and performance are memorable and leave you wanting more.

    "Exceptional! Hopefully more to come soon!"

    I very much enjoyed this story of this consultant of evil. As a buisness consultant myself, I was hooked. I look forward to listening to many more consultations between Edward and the evils of this world.

    "Cruelly Delicious!"

    Be patient, the excellent story will surprise you with its logic and coldness. Kudos to the author. I can't wait Until the next evil consultant story. Maybe this one will be a werewolf. (If there will be a next story of course...hint hint!)

    "Funny"

    I liked the side kicks a lot. The old nanny and the midget lawyer were very funny. The main character... Not so much.

    I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would. Great storytelling, unforgettable characters, and a nice twist at the end.
