Overview

Joe Pitt is back in this explosive sequel to Charlie Hutson's stunning UK debut, ALREADY DEAD New York's favourite rogue detective, Joe Pitt, is about to find himself caught in a nasty power struggle between competing Vampyre clans. Down to his last few bags of blood and behind on rent, Joe takes on a decidedly dirty job: finding the source of a powerful drug that's hit the street, one strong enough to affect Vampyres and make its users do unpredictable things, things that could bring unwelcome exposure to New York's Vampyre community. Unfortunately, that entails crossing the mid-Manhattan turf of the Coalition into the equally fearsome territory of the Hood in Harlem. One thing about Vampyres: they have plenty of time on their bloodstained hands to engage in complex, violent feuds. Worse, Joe might be some powerful player's idea of a sacrificial pawn...

Reviews

'Huston does an irresistible and fiendishly original take on the vampire myth' Publishers Weekly 'The terse, hard-boiled prose and characters contain shades of Raymond Chandler, Hunter S. Thompson, and Quentin Tarantino, but are wholly original' Washington Post


In p.i. Joe Pitt's second adventure (Already Dead, 2005), turf-warring Vampyres are out for blood.Not many people know that lower Manhattan is home to more than 4,000 Vampyres. Most of them are attached to clans with names like Coalition (the top of the heap, ruthlessly dedicated to the status quo) and Society (smaller, but equally ferocious). In addition, there's a smattering of independent Rogues like Pitt, a quintessential loner who stubbornly refuses to wear any clan's livery. With his blood stash and funds uncomfortably diminished, Joe needs a gig in order to replenish both. So he calls on Society boss Terry Bird. His history with Terry is checkered, but he prefers him to the Coalition alternative. Terry has work for him, all right, but Joe doesn't like a thing he hears about the assignment. To begin with, it means a subway ride uptown, where the blood-sucking scene is less familiar, more dangerous and full of people like the venomous, murderous Mrs. Vandewater and DJ Grave Digga, who kills as easily as he breathes. Uptown Vampyres are fiercely territorial, chieftains to steer clear of. But Joe's plummeting blood supply, flat wallet and bleak guiding principle- I'm already as sick as a man can get -persuade him to take the A train.Warning to the squeamish: Huston, a gifted storyteller, relishes moments when things get ugly. (Kirkus Reviews)
