Publisher's Summary

Joe Pitt's life sucks. He hasn't had a case or a job in God knows how long, and his stashes are running on empty. What stashes? The only ones that count to a guy like Joe: blood and money. The money he uses to buy blood; the blood he drinks. Hey, it's that or your neck, buddy.

The only way for him to lay his hands on both is to take a gig with the local Vampyre Clan. See, something new is on the streets, a new high, a high so strong it can send a Vampyre spazzing through Joe's local watering hole - till Joe sends him through a plate-glass window, that is. It won't be long now before he's slapping stoolies, getting sapped, and being taken for a ride above 110th Street.

Someone's pulling Joe's strings, and he's gonna cut them when he finds them - the strings and the hands that hold them.

Dying for more? Listen to the first book, Already Dead.

What the Critics Say

"There are echoes of Raymond Chandler and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices of the 21st-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston is where it's at." (Washington Post Book World)
"The doomed love story at the heart of Huston's action-filled epic is what truly makes this a noir novel, and the undead microcosm of society he creates is both surprisingly relevant and entertaining." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Non stop excitement"

    I read this book before the first one on accident but it really didn’t affect the story. I loved the narrator. He did a great job and he never once slipped with his ascents. The story starts off exciting and really never stops. Pitt is an incredible character that so envelopes the reader that he is irresistible and should be on the silver screen too. I usually get distracted with first person point of view but the author did a great job in this case. I would suggest that you read this book if you like the supernatural mixed with a bit of a rebel without a cause.

    "What a terrific romp!"

    Pure, unabashed fun.
    I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and the narrator was flawless.
    Someone really did their job well in choosing the perfect voice for this book.
    The funny thing is, I'm more than fed up with all the Goth crap that's all the rage, including vampires and werewolves.
    This series should not be painted with the same brush, nor categorized in the same genre.
    Well done Charlie Huston and Scott Brick...well done indeed.

    "Down the rabbit hole"

    Joe Pitt has swagger. I could not think of another word to describe him. His edge that sets him apart. Sure he is witty but it is edgy. I don't smoke but if I did, give me a Lucky with a leather jacket that I can rock with it. Excellent book as usual by Huston and it has a dark side that will take you on a journey if you follow. A little but of "Apocalypse Now" type dark where I am fully entrenched and it takes a while to come out of it as a listener. All the main characters and pieces are still in play and by the end you will want another. Can't say enough about Scott Brick too. Excellent narrator. His range knows no end!!

    "Joe Pitt Is Much Fun!"

    The vampire protagonist is a little bit of Jack Reacher and a little bit of film noir and a little bit of vampire and a WHOLE lot of fun. Read them in order, because the story does tie together - but regardless of how you enjoy them, just do. Scott Brick is often not my favorite narrator, but his voice comes to life in Joe Pitt, and this is the best I've heard him. I am going to continue the series - it's compelling and a whole hell of a lot of fun.

    "Another Wild Ride with Joe Pitt"

    No Dominion is another wild ride with reluctant hero Joe Pitt. It is darker than the first, with a lot of action, but no less brilliant and intense. Joe Pitt is a one-of-a-kind original. Huston's gritty style has me hooked, and Brick's narraton has me craving more. I highly recommend this audiobook.

    "Better than the 1st"

    This book was great. I really enjoyed the plot as well as the narrator, who brings the book to life. Wish they had more books from the series.

    "Must read"

    If you love this genre but hate the typical vampire vs human series, this is a must for you. Unique storyline and fabulous character creation. This was written to make us think twice about who your standing next to and what is in the bad, really. Fun and scary

    Story
    "Vampires with no stakes (but high-stakes politics)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of No Dominion to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print edition, so I can't really say. However, Brick did a good job conveying the laid-back nature of a couple of the characters (esp. a hippie leader of one faction), which I wouldn't have picked up on quickly without his narration. He's obviously a talented performer, so bound to make the most of what the text has to offer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's a first-person story, so we of course identify with the main character, who is a nice mix of tough guy and worrywart.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I really liked all the character voices *other* than the main character, who, presumably by request of the author, has a sort of trite noir-detective New York twang. Every time the story returned from other groups (the downtown hippies, the way-uptown black toughs, the mysterious druidical sect) to our main character, I cringed a little again. But the story and overall narration were great, so I was pulled along.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It had fast and slow stretches, so there were some breaks when I didn't mind having to take my headphones off. But I did want to get back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Not at all typical of how vampires are handled, and honestly, the sort of detective story and political maneouvering are much more central to the story than is the vampire aspect, so it might appeal to plenty of people who are put off by all the romantic woes of the mainstream vampire cadre...
