After exposing the secret source of blood for half of Manhattan’s Vampyres, private eye Joe Pitt is definitely a dead man walking. For a year, he’s sloshed around the subway tunnels and sewers, tapping the veins of the lost, while above ground, a Vampyre civil war threatens to drag the Clans into the sunlight once and for all. What’s it gonna take to dig him up? Just the search for a missing girl who’s carrying a baby that just might be the destiny of Vampyre-kind.

Not that Joe cares all that much about destiny and such. What he cares about is that his ex-girl Evie wants him to take the gig. What’s the risk? Another turn playing pigeon in a shooting gallery. What’s the reward? Maybe one shot of his own. What’s he aiming for? Nothing much—just all the evil at the heart of his world.

    " Oh Joe Pitt it was a great ride. May you and Evie ride off into the deep dark night. Sweet redemption with deaths of predo and bird. Hurley too but he was a decent vampyr. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mapman | 2/13/2014

    " Once again, really a good series for me. Love the character. Wish this could have continued. But on to the next book ... whatever that will be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Della | 2/8/2014

    " This whole series is amazing. Vampires meet the mob in a dark noir novel. One of the best books I've read in the last few years! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 1/30/2014

    " A satisfying conclusion to the series making sure to tie all books and major characters into the final storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lady of the Lake | 1/29/2014

    " A great finish to a really fun series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Topher | 1/26/2014

    " I believe this marks the end of the Joe Pitt casebook. While I'm sad to see such a great character reach the end of a series, it was truly a fitting ending for a character of the Sam Spade school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Niland | 1/24/2014

    " Bringing Charlie Huston's wonderful series of supernatural pulp to a conclusion with a rollicking finish, this book was a joy to read. Joe Pitt is a Vampyre (infected by the AIDS like Vyrus in the bathroom at the punk haven CBGB's) and after the events of the previous books he has been driven (literally) underground, living amongst the hobos and the castoffs in the New York City sewer system. Contacted by a former acquaintance to which Pitt feels a debt, he surfaces once again in order to find the man's missing daughter. Pregnant with a half-human, half-vampyre child, she is on the run as the various Vampyre factions slide toward total war, and wish to use her as a symbol of their struggle. If there is one thing the various factions of the Vampyre underground agree on, it is a dislike of Mr. Pitt. So with few allies and a lot of enemies, he sets off in search of the mother to be. It's a struggle every step of the way as Joe finds a brutal reception filled with monsters, torture and the enmity of past transgressions. Despite being brutally violent, the book maintains a sense of humor (albeit an appropriately pitch black one) and the cracking story builds to an unstoppable conclusion. If you've had you're fill of touchy-feely vampires by the likes of Stephenie Meyer and Charlaine Harris, give Joe Pitt a try. It's best to start at the beginning of the series, Already Dead, to get the complete Joe Pitt experience. He is one of the most interesting characters in genre fiction and he will be sorely missed. "

    " Good night Joe Pitt, it was a fun ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 12/15/2013

    " Another good entry in the Joe Pitt series of vampire noir books from Huston. Sorry to say this reads like the last, but who can say? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy Ann | 12/15/2013

    " I did not expect that ending. :D "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Noah | 10/10/2013

    " Gave up, this one's awful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom O'Connor | 6/1/2013

    " Another great read from Huston, I'm just worried that he may be wrapping up the Joe Pitt series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 11/23/2012

    " This series was so good, I actually bought the last book new because I had to find out what happened. Sure, at some point in the story I thought, Joe, if you lose any more body parts I don't know if I can keep going. Then he lost some more body parts, and it was okay. Great books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyliecallme | 11/22/2012

    " Didn't like this one as much as the other 4... Still good, but disappointed with the conclusion. :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 8/29/2012

    " I was rather disappointed. Charlie should have had an end game. This was NOT a satisfying end to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 8/12/2012

    " Charlie Huston didn't even kill the protagonist in this one. I mean, he's a multiple amputee with only one eye now... but he's not dead. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Mattar | 5/29/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 3/4/2012

    " Not quite as good as the first few in the series, but much better than the previous book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimmy Mcmichael | 10/11/2011

    " A perfect ending to an awesome series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack | 9/11/2011

    " A near-perfect ending to a near-perfect series of supernatural noir. I wish I could electroshock myself to forget this series, just so I could read it all again for the first time. Disturbing and great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jane | 5/20/2011

    " So stoopid. This series has disintegrated like a vampire in sunlight. "

    " Good night Joe Pitt, it was a fun ride. "

    " Neatly raps up the series (it could continue, but there's no need). Odd how the series shifted from standalone books to a connected narrative in the middle of its run. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 4/4/2011

    " SPOILER ALERT:

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 1/19/2011

    " Mr Huston never disappoints. He batters his poor protagonists beyond recognition until even I wondered if Joe could ever prevail! Super fun read. I'm in fangrrl Heaven whenever I read Charlie Huston. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/2/2011

    " Joe Pitt turned the vampyre world upside down in the last novel. This one he blows it wide open, all in his usual take a beating and barely survive snarky manner. "
