Publisher's Summary

I've always had a weak spot for strange ladies. One very beautiful girl had even warned me that she was, get this, a vampire. But did I listen? No. Before you know it, I'm being chased by an ugly thug with a gun, and a bullet blasts its way through my back, and, believe it or not, nothing happened. I survived! How? You guessed it. I, Jack Fleming, ace reporter, have been transformed into a vampire, which has its advantages. You never die, you never grow old, you sleep all day, and, best of all, you can hunt down your own murderer.
Bloodlist is the first novel in an exciting vampire adventure series.

A unique perspective on vampire novels.

I first got hooked on Elrod's adventures about Jack Flemming, an average decent guy who becomes a vampire, in my late teens. My aunt had them on the bookshelf, it seemed a short read for a time killer, but ended up being so entertaining that I added all of Elrod's books to my collection and am finally to the point where any newly released novels I end up getting in hardback.

The setting of the books is in the 1920's-30's, in the height of the mob's power. The series is written in first person, which is refreshing in itself, but Elrod takes a story with the standard "dime novel" detective cliche's and dresses them up into something that's really interesting and doesn't feel rehashed at all.

Give this one a shot, I doubt you'll regret it, and more than likely you'll end up picking up the rest of them before they can pump out the audio books.

Fun Read

While I was totally new to this series, I decided hey, what the heck; and I'm glad I did. What a fun little ride. Is it a great work of literature, no. Will this be a timeless vampire story, again sadly no, but it is worth a read. It's fun, unique, and totally different than anything in this genre, it is much more a film noir sort of story than a vampire tale, but it is enjoyable. I wasn't thrilled with the ending, but then I find that the ending of a book, no matter how good, is still the end, and if you like a book, then you hate to see it coming. It was a little trite, but still enjoyable enough for me to go on and read the rest of the series. Wonder why audible doesn't have at least one or two of the others in this series?!
