NOBODY LIVES FOREVER. NOT EVEN A VAMPYRE.Just ask Joe Pitt. After exposing the secret source of blood for half of Manhattan’s Vampyres, he’s definitely a dead man walking. He’s been a punching bag and a bullet magnet for every Vampyre Clan in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, not to mention a private eye, an enforcer, an exile, and a vigilante, but now he’s just a target with legs.For a year he’s sloshed around the subway tunnels and sewers, tapping the veins of the lost, while above ground a Vampyre civil war threatens to drag the Clans into the sunlight once and for all. What’s it gonna take to dig him up? Just the search for a missing girl who’s carrying a baby that just might be the destiny of Vampyre-kind. Not that Joe cares all that much about destiny and such. What he cares about is that his ex-girl Evie wants him to take the gig. What’s the risk? Another turn playing pigeon in a shooting gallery. What’s the reward? Maybe one shot of his own. What’s he aiming for? Nothing much. Just all the evil at the heart of his world.

I'm re-reading this book, and have decided this series--and particularly this book--has a carol-simile.Once, in the early witching hours of the morning when absolutely nothing good happens, I got called out of bed to respond to a roll-over car accident out by Highway N. My partner and I jumped in th...
A somewhat fitting ending to a series that held me captive for all five books. I am not quite sure what to think about this one... I don't think I understood what happened to Joe and to Evie. And there were so many loose ends but I think that was part of what had to happen. Yeah, yeah, I know, this ...
The reason that I am not a fan of book series is because most authors simply don't have the ability to draw out a plot to several books. They either run out of ideas and coast or they blatantly continue with the only real motivation being the money it brings in. Charlie Huston is not one of those wr...
