Today we’ll be looking at D.R. Perry’s “A Change in Crime,” a Dragon Award Finalist for Alternate History. This lovely book is included on the winner’s Kindle! Here’s a look at the blurb:
In November of 1929, the last autumn leaves started a domino effect in Fall River. At a time when most give thanks, others lurk at society’s fringes, waiting for a shot at revenge. Power. Redemption.
A Mafia hit leaves Leo Riley homeless and at the mercy of Oguina, a powerful monster under an ancient curse. A hunter with skin in this game stalks the streets, playing cat-and-mouse with the creatures he’s sworn to eliminate. The capo di tutti capi with a secret gazes into a moral abyss, threatening to take his men with him if he falls. All struggle to hold on to humanity.
Unlikely allies join forces, fighting for their rights to Fall River’s streets and their very survival. Some will fall, some will rise, but can there ever be a winner when crime and change come to call?

This book really took me by surprise. By the title and the cover, I expected a murder mystery. The blurb seemed to enforce that sentiment. Then I got into the meat of the story and discovered it’s so much more! This is an alternate history novel set during the prohibition era, where the twist is that it’s a new take on vampire lore. The monsters aren’t what they seem and each twist of the plot took me by surprise. After reading it, I almost don’t even want to pin it to one genre. It had solid elements of a mystery, thriller, fantasy, alternate history, retelling–all rolled into a single tasty tale. Thoroughly enjoyed this one!
I highly recommend “A Change in Crime” for anyone looking for a fantasy that’ll have you genre-hopping with a smile!
