From Library Journal:

Vampires have taken over much of the world but have only recently arrived on America's shores. In a small New Jersey town, Rabbi Zev Wolpin searches for his Catholic friend, Father Joe Cahill, hoping that together they can oust the vampires and strike a blow for humanity. Our heroes wonder why the undead seem exempt from the laws of physics (they cast no reflection in mirrors) and are harmed only by Christian holy objects (holy water). Unfortunately, by novel's end, there are no answers to these tantalizing questions. In 1990, Wilson, a well-known author in the horror field and creator of the "Repairman Jack" series, published the novella Midnight Mass, which forms the basis of this current work. While the novella has a well-written, tautly plotted story, the novel is replete with padding-repetitious dialog and numerous one-dimensional characters. Nevertheless, given the author's popularity, libraries with large sf/fantasy collections may want to consider.-Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Columbia, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
