1930s mob noir with a vampire twist
The concept of old time gangster vampires was like nothing I have heard before. Elaborate character and world building within the vampire mob was very interesting. The main character has a complex personality that doesn't immediately make him the hero of the book. Through the interaction s with the other characters and events he becomes more understandable and sympathetic. A take on the vampire genre I have not come across held my interest to the end. I would be interested in the evolution of Faolan in other books. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review
Drawing Dead by Brian McKinley was a good read. When Faolan O'Connor dies, he finds out that there is life after death. Faolan is a mobster who finds out that vampire's do exist after he died. I enjoyed reading this unique take on vampire stories.
