Publisher's Summary

There’s only so much room on the Island, only so much blood, and Manhattan’s Vampyre Clans aren’t interested in sharing. So when the Vyrus-infected dregs of New York’s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges, the Clans want to know why. Bad luck for PI Joe Pitt. Joe used to be a Rogue, work off his own dime, pick his own gigs, but tight times and a terminally ill girlfriend pushed him to the renegade Society Clan.
Now he has all the cash and blood he needs, but at a steep price. The price tonight is crossing the bridge, finding the Freak Clan, and figuring out what’s driving the savages to scratch at the Society’s door. No need to look far. The answer lies around the corner in Gravesend. From uptown to the boardwalk, war drums are beating. Murderous family feuds and personal grudges are being drawn and brandished, along with the long knives.

Critic Reviews

“As always, Huston’s formidable writing chops are on full display: his action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Well written and fast-paced, this third installment in Houston’s Joe Pitt Casebooks noir series…features all the hard-boiled action of the previous titles.” (Library Journal)

another solid installment

If you are at this point in the series, you are probably already invested.

More of the same (in a good way) - solid writing, great voice work (hey, it's Brick)

One observation, not really a criticism -- the story in this installment is a little less self-contained. I think the episodic plot, the immediate issue or "mystery" that the protagonist deals with, takes a back seat to service the overall plot arc of the series. there is less about the immediate threat and more about complications in the recurring world and overall situations, and the story ends with issues maybe a little more open. It feels like a set-up for the next installments.
(much like Part II of abt any classic trilogy behaves)
It's not really a negative
while it would be a clever trick to be able to close the story AND keep momentum, that would just be a clever trick -- I think the change in pacing keeps the series from falling into a "set em up...knock em down" monotony and seems to be a common and natural place to open up a story to a larger arc (Dresden Files book 3 does this very clearly and the Harry Potter series also follows this rhythm for instance).


-the short term characters,situations nd themes are quite interesting
-the author is not afraid to make the threats a little more abstract and complex (protagonist having to juggle multiple elements)
- the long term characters are not too precious for change

If you are this far in, you'll enjoy it, I did

just prepare to immediately want book 4 (in production) to tie things up.
