Publisher's summary

The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo: Three years ago, high school student Veronica Fortune witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. Now armed and dangerous, she sets out to hunt down the very thing that destroyed her life. That is, until she disappears. Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He's good at what he does. Damn good. But he's also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Hired to find Veronica, Spinoza won't let his personal demons - or demons of any kind - get in the way of finding the truth about the missing girl. Now following a bizarre set of clues that leads him into stranger and stranger territory, Spinoza is about to come face-to-face with something legendary... and something hungry for blood.

The Vampire Who Played Dead: Two years ago, a woman is murdered in cold blood. Now a son she'd given up for adoption returns to claim his inheritance. To verify his claim, a DNA test is ordered. Except there's one problem. Her grave is empty. Now hired to find the missing body, Spinoza will follow a set of clues that leads him to the unthinkable, a world of nightmares and dreamscapes. A world inhabited by the living and the dead.

The Vampire in the Iron Mask: Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He's good at what he does. Damn good. But he's also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Now determined to redeem his troubled soul, Spinoza won't let his personal demons - or demons of any kind - stop him from finding the missing. In this third and final Spinoza mystery, a worker at a popular medieval dinner theater hires Spinoza to find out the identity of one of his co-workers, a co-worker who's never been seen without an iron mask... and who just might be a real prisoner.

Interesting Trilogy

Not sure what to say about this one. I will do a quick review and each and then my overall thoughts.

The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo was a good introduction to Spinoza and his tormented psyche. You got a good sense of what makes him tick not to mention you got to see just much he is willing to help this little old lady find a lost girl. The introduction of the vampire aspect was interesting as Spinoza was never really sure what he saw. I also really liked the ending.

The Vampire who Played Dead felt like exactly what it was a middle story in a trilogy that wasn’t good or bad but for me this one didn’t really push the story forward any. It felt very random especially after listening to the last story in the trilogy.

The Vampire in the Iron Mask was really good and brought the first book full circle. It had plenty of action and gave a full sense of closure to the whole story. The story started with a bang and ended well.

The trilogy was good but I actually wish the stories were longer. I liked the Spinoza character and he fit well into J.R. Rain’s world. I guess my biggest issues is that it felt like the vampire mythology J.R. Rain built in the Samantha Moon stories is very different from this one even
