Spiked with "a flavor of the supernatural" (Science Fiction Chronicle), P. N. Elrod's series The Vampire Files goes one step beyond detective noir. Its hero is Jack Fleming, a private detective on the right side of the law - but on the wrong side of the living - in post-prohibition Chicago.

I think that this series has greatly improved the genre that is vampire urban fantasy. With upstart authors or wanna be authors pumping out vampire novel trash like House of Night, Chicago land vampires, and Vampire Academy it is enough for you to give up completely on the genre all together. Finally there is the Vampire Files to sneak in and show us that there is hope for the genre. Romance takes a passenger if not back seat to the plot which is refreshing . It won't be in the top three urban fantasy books you've ever read but should be in the top ten.
