Urban supernatural mystery thriller about a partially blind detective and a vampire romance author. It is a series which can be read as a s stand alone without t a lot of the repetitive background. Henry Fitzroy is the illegitimate son of Henry the VIII and Vicki is a former Toronto, Ontario police detective. She was great at her job and loved her job. If is was not for the retinosa pigmentosa. She is going blind; she has lost her night vision and most of her peripheral vision.
With her night vision disability and Henry's day light disability they make the perfect detective team. Supernatural creatures are not the norm in Toronto so there is a learning / teaching curve between the vampire and detective. There is romantic tension between Henry, Vicki and Mike Celluci; Vicki's former police partner and sometime lover.
When Henry friends (wearwolves) need some detective skills, Henry gets Vicki to help out. The Blood Trail series formula is a mystery (initiated by one of the main characters), introduction of a supernatural event / character and rivalry between the guys over Vicki and a sexual triss to add spice.

Having read all the series years ago I was excited for the audible version. I had to stop listening though- the narrator made all the voices breathy and shrill. She made Vicki sound like she alternated only between whiny or hysterical throughout the book. It was too much for me. I'm sad and disappointed- I've loved these books for the 20 years. I will have to re-read rather than listen.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book series I like the lead female character she is ballsy and I also like the other characters I must admit I watched the tv show first and loved that so have now started getting the books, and they haven't disappointed.
What did you like best about this story?
I like the characters, it also has great story lines and also love that it's set in Canada.
What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?
I thought she was very good she has a very good rhythm and inflections in her voice.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Can Victoria Nelson juggle being a private eye, losing her sight and dating two men watch and see.
Any additional comments?
Loved the tv show and would recommend even though they didn't do enough of them.
