Add your own review!

Overview

There's a bad vibe in the air. Every Vampyre in Manhattan feels it in their bones...and in their blood. The mother of all gang rumbles is brewing between the divided Clans of the city's undead. A battle royal for more turf that will tear the island from stem to stern. And just his luck, Joe Pitt is smack in the middle of it. A rogue Vampyre who shunned Clan life, Joe's his own man. Kind of. Thing is, there's certain people have a claim on his talents. When they need someone who's...expendable, they call on Joe Pitt. They're calling now. With war drums beating from the Hudson to the Harlem River, Joe's been dispatched into the uncharted territory of Brooklyn to seal an alliance with the Freaks - a Clan who more than live up to their name. But across the bridge, things go south with savage swiftness, as Joe gets swept into a murderous family feud between crazed Clans that will paint the borough scarlet from Gravesend to Coney Island.

Reviews

'[Huston's] action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous' Publishers Weekly (starred review) 'Violent, often ugly, Huston's series is not for the squeamish, but fans will find this third installment the best to date' Kirkus 'An irresistible and fiendishly original take on the vampire myth' Publishers Weekly 'Brutal, stylishly noir thriller [with] a contemporary edge' The Times 'Huston's third Joe Pitt vampire novel (after Already Dead and No Dominion) takes his Manhattan-based hard-boiled hero on a dangerous trip into the undead communities across the bridge in Brooklyn. The various vampire clans in New York are on the brink of conflict. Leadership has fallen apart, and to make things worse, a Van Helsing is running amok and has recently murdered a longtime supplier of contraband blood. Worst of all, Pitt's AIDS-stricken girlfriend, Evie, is in the hospital failing fast. Once again, he's faced with an almost classical dilemma: infecting her with the vampire virus will destroy the illness that's killing her, but she'll be a vampire. Sent to Brooklyn to meet with a rogue clan of carnival freak vampires, Pitt ends up battling a group of radical Jewish bloodsuckers called the lost tribe of Gibeah. As always, Huston's formidable writing chops are on full display: his action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous.' Publishers Weekly (starred review) 'The further, even gorier adventures of Joe Pitt, Vampyre extraordinaire (No Dominion, 2006, etc.). Unbeknownst to most, there are 4,000 undead sucking blood in Manhattan. Among them, the talented Joe Pitt has always been a sort of paradigm of Vampyre independence?until now. Suddenly, he's become an establishment figure, head of security for the powerful Society clan. There are obvious advantages to a regularized undead life. It's nice, for instance, to have a reliable blood stash. Even more importantly, Joe gets the time he needs to care for his beloved and seriously ailing girlfriend Evie. There's a price, of course. Joe has to go along to get along, and when he's assigned the onerous Brooklyn gig he grumbles but obeys. Something strange is stirring there, he's told: Go find out if we have to worry about a Vampyre Civil War. What Joe discovers is strange enough: a motley group of Chosen Vampyres, including a Rebbe out of Fiddler on the Roof, a Jewish mother out of a Henny Youngman sketch and a cadre of murderous warriors in battle yarmulkes. Readers whose world view is as bleak as Joe's won't be surprised when his mission comes to a bad end. Like there's any other kind, he says dourly. Violent, often ugly, Huston's series is not for the squeamish, but fans will find this third installment the best to date.' KIRKUS REVIEWS
