There’s only so much room on the Island—only so much blood—and Manhattan’s Vampyre Clans aren’t interested in sharing. So when the Vyrus-infected dregs of New York’s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges, the Clans want to know why. Bad luck for PI Joe Pitt. Joe used to be a Rogue, working off his own dime, picking his own gigs, but tight times and a terminally ill girlfriend pushed him to the renegade Society Clan. Now he has all the cash and blood he needs, but at a steep price. The price tonight is crossing the bridge, finding the Freak Clan, and figuring out what’s driving the savages to scratch at the Society’s door. No need to look far—the answer lies around the corner in Gravesend. From uptown to the boardwalk, war drums are beating. Murderous family feuds and personal grudges are being drawn and brandished, along with the long knives.

    Library Journal

  • “More entertaining and creative than most contemporary PI tales.”

    Booklist

    " vamp noir. oh yea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ryon | 2/12/2014

    " Probably the low point of the series. The idea of the Jewish vampire sect was great, but the dialogue rambled on a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tom | 2/10/2014

    " I love the Joe Pitt books. Charlie Huston offers a novel twist on the vampire genre - that they are created by a virus (or in this case, The Vyrus) that devours blood, which creates the thirst and need for more blood. Joe Pitt is not the brightest bulb, but the books are always exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jamil | 2/6/2014

    " this one started off kinda slow, but then, 100 pages in, it got good, then it went weird, and then the whole formula set up in this and the previous books kinda got burned to the ground. it was pretty awesome. "
