Overview

Those stories you hear? The ones about things that only come out at night? Things that feed on blood, feed on us? Got news for you: they're true. Only it's not like the movies or old man Stoker's storybook. It's worse. Especially if you happen to be one of them. Just ask Joe Pitt. There's a shambler on the loose. Some fool who got himself infected with a flesh-eating bacteria is lurching around, trying to munch on folks' brains. Joe hates shamblers, but he's still the one who has to deal with them. That's just the kind of life he has. Except afterlife might be a better word. From the Battery to the Bronx, and from river to river, Manhattan is crawling with Vampyres. Joe is one of them, and he's not happy about it. Yeah, he gets to be stronger and faster than you, and he's tough as nails and hard to kill. But spending his nights trying to score a pint of blood to feed the Vyrus that's eating at him isn't his idea of a good time. And Joe doesn't make it any easier on himself. Going his own way, refusing to ally with the Clans that run the undead underside of Manhattan--it ain't easy. It's worse once he gets mixed up with the Coalition--the city's most powerful Clan--and finds himself searching for a poor little rich girl who's gone missing in Alphabet City. Now the Coalition and the girl's high-society parents are breathing down his neck, anarchist Vampyres are pushing him around, and a crazy Vampyre cult is stalking him. No time to complain, though. Got to find that girl and kill that shambler before the whip comes down...and before the sun comes up.

Scott Brick...brings dimension to the story...[His] portrayal of Joe in the throws of the Vyrus is tremendous. The agony and the struggle are palpable...[Brick] delivers a 'Wow' performance with his interpretation of Already Dead. -- SFSite.com The narrative fairly blazes alive the second one hears the world-weary Joe Pitt voiced by Scott Brick. Highly recommended. -- SFFAudio.com [The] noir-style dialogue...sends thrills through the listener...the narrative fairly blazes alive the second one hears the world-weary Joe Pitt voiced by Scott Brick...I'm now a fan, not only of author Charlie Huston, but also of Scott Brick. Highly recommended. -- SFFAudio.com Huston's intricate, fast-paced, Chandleresque vampire-crime story has plenty of action, violence, and raw language. An excellent story. -- Library Journal An irresistible and fiendishly original take on the vampire myth...Huston has fun playing with the conventions of the genre, creating his own hip update that will appeal to fans of Quentin Tarantino and Buffy the Vampire Slayer alike. -- Publishers Weekly Huston portrays a noirish, gritty, alter-Manhattan world...The terse, hard-boiled prose and characters contain shades of Raymond Chandler, Hunter S. Thompson, and Quentin Tarantino, but are wholly original. -- Bookmarks Magazine It's probably true that this book's core audience is among the young, the cool, the hip and the unshockable. Of course, it's also suitable for those of any age who have the wit to appreciate clever, hard-edged writing...there are echoes of Raymond Chandler in Huston's work and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices in 21st-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston, as much as anyone I can think of, is where it's at. -- Washington Post There are echoes of Raymond Chandlerin Huston's work and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices in 21st-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston, as much as anyone I can think of, is where it's at. -- Washington Post
