Publisher's Summary

Jack Fleming was an investigative journalist in Prohibition-era Chicago until he got shot by an unknown assassin, bitten by his vampire girlfriend, and then became one of the undead. Now, this nice-guy nosferatu has a bunch of crazy vampire hunters on his trail, armed with crosses, silver bullets, and sharp wooden stakes.He doesn't know how they found out about him or why they are "out for his blood," but it's not a problem for this street-wise gumshoe, until someone starts shooting. Jack himself may be bulletproof, but his friends are not. And Jack is determined to get some answers, even if it kills him - again. It's a case of the living versus the undead. But who's hunting whom?

Not as good as the first, but still pretty good

The title says it all. The novel is good and entertaining but just lacks a bit of the grittiness of the first novel. We do get to learn more about the main character and some of the past of the woman who made him a vampire. This one is a lot less dark and a lot more predictable than the previous book, hence the lower rating .

You could read this one as a stand alone but it will be more enjoyable if read following the first novel. Once again, the main character is pretty much the only supernatural element of the story. That's not a bad thing, just how it is. The main character does come off a bit more sappy and weak than in the first one but still makes a good main character. I hope the author toughens him up a bit in later stories.

Alll in all, it is still a very good book and definitely worth a listen. Just be aware there are about 12 novels in this series so if you get hooked you may be buying a lot of books. ;)

Awesome detective story

I love vampires and I love suspense, P N Elrod does a wonderful job of combining both. Terrific book and I can't wait until you get more of the Vampire Files on the site.
