Dark Passages is a deliciously wicked witches’ brew — a sly look at the swinging Sixties, a private glimpse behind the scenes of the New York Playboy Club, and, to top it all off, a supernatural tale of love and personal empowerment on the set of a hit TV show suspiciously similar to “Dark Shadows” — in which the author once starred! It’s a wild ride, and when I wasn’t getting goose bumps (did I mention that the heroine is a vampire?) I was smiling at the backstage intrigues, the perfect pitch for the tone of the times, and the sheer story-telling zest. Kathryn Leigh Scott has written a book that no one else in the world could have dreamed of, much less carried off with such an insider’s conviction and style. It’s a Halloween treat that’s equally tasty any time of the year!
– Robert Masello, author of The Medusa Amulet
Dark Passages is hot fudge sundae, with a dollop of â€˜60s New York, drenched in a back-door peek into the Playboy Club, star-crossed love and the travails of a young actress trying to make it without using her vampiric gifts, topped off with a whipped-cream battle against a rivalrous witch with unusual supernatural powers. Yum, yum… I love it!
– Susan Sullivan, “Castle” (ABC-TV)
Dark Passages is an enjoyable, swiftly paced novel with eerie undertones and terrific flashes of humor, set in the world of 1960s daytime television. Kathryn Leigh Scott has come up with both a suspenseful page-turner and a savvy insider’s look at show-biz competitiveness.

Reading Dark Passages was like being back on the sets of “Dark Shadows,” except with real vampires behind the scenes!
