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, buddy, it’s that or your neck–you want to choose?... show more
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, buddy, it’s that or your neck–you want to choose? The only way 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. So it’s time for Joe to gut up and swallow that pride and follow the leads wherever they go. It won’t be long before he’s slapping stoolies, getting sapped, and being taken for a ride above 110th Street. Someone’s pulling Joe’s strings, and now he’s riding the A train, looking to find who it is. He’s gonna cut them when he finds them–the strings and the hands that hold them.

2/5; 2 stars; CThis started out really good. Edgey with a film noir feel. Kind of like The Maltese Falcon with vampyres and thugs instead of Bogart and dames. Then it dragged and there were big detours to fill in back story and then the really tough guys came into the scene and I just about keele...
Joe Pitt gets mixed up in a nasty double-cross and, as usual, he's on the losing end of it...There is a new drug going around the Island of Manhattan and it's causing havoc among the newly converted. Seems that this drug is the only way for a Vampyre to get high, or at least feel the high they did b...
Charlie Huston has become one of my go-to authors. I love the Hank THompson series, and now have been reading the Joe Pitts. The dialogue is superb, the story complicated and cohesive enough to draw you in.As a vampire with no alliance, Joe Pitt has to maintain a freindly status quo with the various...
If I ever get reincarnated as a fictional character, I do not want to end up in a Charlie Huston novel. Joe Pitt is a good example. In this second installment of the Joe Pitt Casebook, much like the first, Joe goes to a New York hell and back; gets beat up, burned up, tortured, passed around evil va...
