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.… (més)

Still not sure how I feel about this series. I like the character but the story was still a little weak for me. I own the third one and that is going to be my last if it doesn't pick up. ( )

I've always loved the vampire as symbol for everything from excessive greed to amorality to marginalized humanity. And Huston uses a bit of all that in creating his hard-boiled rogue vampire who does free-lance investigation and a lot of rough stuff on the side. The style is pure noir that Huston uses handily to create some thrill-a-minute reading, excellent characters, and compelling anti-hero in Joe Pitt.

Excellent 2nd entry in the Joe Pitt story where the rogue vampyre is finding things a little tough. After his previous exploits Joe is finding work a little harder to come by these days. He's almost fresh out of blood and also a little behind on the rent. He can't very well go ask the Coalition for a job so he goes to see what's up with the Society. His luck's in when Terry Bird asks him to look into some new drug that's hit the scene specifically aimed at vampyres. A drug that affects his kind of people is unusual in and of itself as the Vyrus just won't cohabit with anything else. Initial investigations lead to The Hood but to get there he'll have to travel through Coalition territory and that's not going to be a piece of cake either. And if he manages that he's going to stick out like a sore thumb so trying to find out what's happening there isn't going to be easy either.

A very good follow up book and probably even better than the first but not quite enough to earn that extra ½ ( )

Another excellent Joe Pitt book. This is a series I am very glad I started. I like Joe, I think his flaws are realistic, even if he does have the vyrus. I like how he deals with situations, no matter how difficult they seem. I am so looking forward to reading the remaining books in this series, as well as all the other books by Charlie Huston. ( )

I really enjoyed this story - it's even better than the first one in the series {Already Dead}. Joe Pitt is cool and calm and very funny in a dead-pan way.

The plot is decent; the bad guys are bad, the good guys are flawed, and the main character is fully fleshed and consistent. It is gory and gross and has coarse language. And, best of all, no "morals" are stogged down your throat.

It's mature and non-romantic - basically a vampire novel written for adults rather than teens. I can't wait to get the next in the series. ( )
