"Genuinely horrifying." THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD Vampire bats: Evil. Clever. Deadly. Driven by blood-hunger across the American landscape, they bred and multiplied, unseen and unsuspected, each one a grisly messenger of death. No warm-blooded creature is safe from their thirst. Now, as darkness gathers, the sky is filled with the frantic motion, the maddening murmur of . . . Nightwing.

This novel was on the shortlist for the 1978 Edgar. Best known for his series about Arcady Renko, a Russian investigator, Martin Cruz Smith is a gifted novelist with awards and recognition outside his famous series that kicked off with Gorky Park. According to Wikipedia Nightwing was his breakthrough novel. This story set on the Hopi Nation land in Arizona features every bit as much of the stark beauty and native lore of the desert as Tony Hillerman. There is a big creepiness factor with the vampire bat playing a starring role. If you're looking for a solid example of Cruz Smith's writing outside of the Russian milieu, this is not a bad place to start.
