Monsters now whisper his name in fear. None live after crossing him. But being the most kick ass occult bounty hunter anywhere has a nightmare downside even he's not ready for...
Anticipating the worst keeps Deacon Chalk a step ahead. But he never expected that a badly-beaten werebat female victim would suddenly mutate and almost take him out. Or that the freak undead that infected her can't wait to turn all lycanthropes into uncontrollable killing machines... once he's gone. And that day is getting awfully close. Deacon may be outnumbered, outgunned, and cut off from help, but what the enemy doesn't know is that's exactly when the world's best bounty hunter lives up to his billing...

I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
This is listed as book 2.5 of the Dacon Chalk series. I used credit from a promotion to buy this and one other short story in this series. This one is pretty short (around an hour and a half). Like the authors other works it is very action driven and written in a tight, fast style that I enjoy reading.
The story was pretty creepy, which made it more fun. Mr. Tuck definitely packed a whole lot into a small package. The narrator did a good job but still has a limited range for characters other than Deacon. that being said his voice for Deacon is so dead on I couldn't imagine any one else doing it justice.
The only real down side is that $5 for less than 2 hours is not a great bargain. I really hope Mr. Ruck compiles all his stories into an anthology. Still if the price isn't prohibitive for you and you like the other books in the series you will enjoy this one as well but If you choose to skip this one it won't impact your enjoyment of the rest of the series.
