New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live - and die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybody - he has spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting the routine he now enjoys: womanizing in punk clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, and sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city's sidewalks.

Tired of sparkly vampires?
The Lesser Dead is a relatively refreshing take on the genre. Dipping into just enough established lore and adding just enough new to make them interesting. And I can guarantee this book is worth multiple listens. The writing is sharp and witty.
As per the performance of the author, he has a great voice for the craft but drops his accents on a few occasions. Nothing horribly noticeable for most of the characters but his Irish accent could use a touch up. This does not detract from the experience as a whole. I enjoyed it.
