Publisher's Summary

Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy. The only way for him to lay his hands on both is to take a gig with the local Vampyre Clan. See, something new is on the streets, a new high, a high so strong it can send a Vampyre spazzing through Joe's local watering hole - till Joe sends him through a plate-glass window, that is. It won't be long now before he's slapping stoolies, getting sapped, and being taken for a ride above 110th Street.
Someone's pulling Joe's strings, and he's gonna cut them when he finds them - the strings and the hands that hold them.
Dying for more? Listen to the first book, Already Dead.

Critic Reviews

"There are echoes of Raymond Chandler and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices of the 21st-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston is where it's at." ( Washington Post Book World)
"The doomed love story at the heart of Huston's action-filled epic is what truly makes this a noir novel, and the undead microcosm of society he creates is both surprisingly relevant and entertaining." ( Publishers Weekly)

Joe Pitt Sucks

This was an impulse buy, it was offered cheap and had a good rating. Audible lists it as book 1, but it is really book 2. I got about half way through it and had give up due to lack of interest. I don't know how you make vampires boring, but Huston found a way. The characters are drug dealers and gangsters and would not be interesting as humans, vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc. It is a snoozer, save your money.

Non stop excitement

I read this book before the first one on accident but it really didn’t affect the story. I loved the narrator. He did a great job and he never once slipped with his ascents. The story starts off exciting and really never stops. Pitt is an incredible character that so envelopes the reader that he is irresistible and should be on the silver screen too. I usually get distracted with first person point of view but the author did a great job in this case. I would suggest that you read this book if you like the supernatural mixed with a bit of a rebel without a cause.
