A vampire has a number of handy skills - he can walk through walls, shrug off bullets, and hypnotize mortals. But one thing this particular vampire cannot do is trace his mother - until now. His trail leads him to a 200-year-old gigolo with a taste for blood, who claims not to know where she is - but who would trust a vampire?

Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.
Seems like I've been waiting forever for the next book in this series. I was somewhat hesitant when I saw that Barrett Whitener was not the narrator for this book but Johnny Heller does a respectable job. The book itself caught my interest right away and kept it for the entire book. I was afraid it had been so long since I'd listened to the others that I wouldn't remember what was going on but the book did a good job of refreshing my memory without overdoing it. I hope Audible is going to release the rest of the books in the series now that they've done this one and that the wait for the next will be much shorter!
Nice 1930's hardboiled detective story with a vampire twist. Different narrator that the first two stories though. Although he may even have a better voice for the period I hate when narrators change mid-series.
The first two books were read by someone else. This reader can't do an English accent. His voice sounds middle age and the main character was in his 30's and then essentially in his early 20's once he died. I love the series, having read all the books and listened to the first two on tape repeatedly. I don't have the time or the eyesight to read the books so I will be getting the entire series, but I would prefer a better reader. I don't know how they choose readers when one of the main characters is English and the reader can't do the accent. I accept the reader as Richard Castle, but he is using the same cadence for this book.
