Flavoring the hard-boiled detective story with a taste of the supernatural, this is the first book in the highly entertaining Vampire Files series.
"I've always had a weak spot for strange ladies. One very beautiful girl had even warned me that she was—get this—a vampire. But did I listen? No.
"Before you know it, I'm being chased by an ugly thug with a gun, and a bullet blasts its way through my back, and—believe it or not—nothing happened. I survived! How? You guessed it. I, Jack Fleming, ace reporter, have been transformed into a vampire.
"Which has its advantages. You never die, you never grow old, you sleep all day...and best of all, you can hunt down your own murderer."
Being turned into a vampire takes some getting used to, and when an astute private investigator spots Jack during his transition period, he arranges a meeting and recruits him. Working together, they take on the criminal world and set out to catch Jack's killer.
