Anne Rice has written whole series of Vampire novels. Her undead have been philosophers, rock stars and everything in between. But in her latest oeuvre, the blood sucking child of the night is the US of A's Secretary of State. Ms Rice outs her sister of blood or soul or both as the vampiric queen of the US blood letting foreign policy.
The gothic novel has Condoleezza, Queen of the Night preying on a world of innocent victims from Baghdad to Islamabad. And bad she is, as she sucks the blood of every man woman or child to whom her dark master, the shadow, "W", sends her.
In the final episode, Condoleezza realizes that her evil master's powers are fading. The vampira is seen in the last pages of the novel feverishly rewriting her resume to feature her prominent volunteer work for the Red Cross blood donation program throughout the world.
