Now 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. It ain't easy going his own way, refusing to ally with the Clans that run the undead underside of Manhattan.
But it's worse once he gets mixed up with the Coalition and finds himself searching for a little rich girl who's gone missing. Now anarchist Vampyres are pushing him around, a crazy cult is stalking him, and Joe's got to find that girl and kill that shambler before the sun comes up.

"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)
I REALLY did not like the narrator. I could not focus on the story because his voice was so distracting and annoying. I tried several times to get "used" to him, but never could.
This one I almost liked a lot. It has a little bit of originality compared to most of the vampire genre. 1. The main character is not steeped in sex - in fact he doesn't have any past one historical recount and 2. the author gets into the politics of the vampire community in kind of a unique way HOWEVER his language is foul and he does frequently stoop to some gratuitous shock-value stuff which always derails me and doesn't add much to the story. Too many F words, too much startling sexuality, too much gore.
