The Suicide Motor Club, by Christopher Buehlman

A group of vampires in sleek classic cars prowl the roadways for fun in Buehlman’s tale of revenge and trauma. The Suicide Motor Club hunts for prey to join in their twisted game of highway bumper cars. But when they have a chance encounter with Judith’s family that leaves her seriously injured, her husband dead, and her son kidnapped, the Club and Judith are set on a collision course, one neither party may survive. Buehlman’s depiction of the roadways in the mid-to-late ’60s presents a landscape that was treacherous enough before the roving band of hedonistic bloodsuckers showed up. If you’re just setting out, your best hope is to either be ready for the Club, or to trust they’ve already had all their fun for the evening.
