The premise of this book had me hooked early on. A wealthy and famous author hires a couple private investigators to look into the legitimacy of a secret vampire culture, one that he has personally been researching for years. Great idea. Unfortunately, the rest of the book seemed rather predictable with a by-the-numbers hunt for the bad guys, complete with a gathering of allies, a sizable weapons purchase, and a target practice session for the main protagonists to bone up on.
Although the last 50 pages were full of action and enjoyable images of grotesque gore, I felt a little let down by this book. Some of the other problems I found were a few continuity errors along with portions of dialogue that seemed a bit cheesy. Most of the scenes moved so quickly there was not time to build any real atmosphere. This was not as good as Garton’s last book in the series, LIVE GIRLS. There were things, of course, I enjoyed about this book - likable characters, well written prose, and a few pleasantly unexpected moments. However, I can only give this a mild recommendation.
