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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There are echoes of Raymond Chandler and of Hunter S. Thompson, too. Among the new voices of the twenty-first-century crime fiction, Charlie Huston is where it’s at.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Huston’s stylish sophomore outing for hard-boiled vampire detective Joe Pitt maintains the high quality of its predecessor, Already Dead…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

  • “[Huston] creates a world that is at once supernatural and totally familiar, imaginative, and utterly convincing.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DJ TweakyClean | 2/19/2014

    " The second book in the series proves why Huston is a master storyteller. Huston goes beyond the hyper- sexual, violent and romantic angst of modern vampire tales, blurring the lines of classic detective pulp noir, NYC "Mean Streets" political realism, and vampire-human love story to create a series that beats with an emotionally raw,fiercely intelligent and passionate heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cory Parish | 2/11/2014

    " Ostensibly just a brutal crime book set in a vampire infested New York but under the surface an intricate web of political machinations that honestly just fill me with joy. Joe is not what you would call a criminal with a heart of gold. Joe'll straight murder a fucker. He is a black, tar filled, cancer ridden lung and damn if I don't love him for it. Think of Richard Stark's (okay, Donald Westlake's) Porter with fangs and you get an idea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Zeigert | 2/9/2014

    " Another excellent volume in the Joe Pitt Casebook series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Mattar | 1/21/2014

    " Charlie Huston hasn't let me down yet, he is a true noir writer!! No Dominion was a great follow-up to his first Joe Pitt "Casebook", it was a fun, fast-paced, gory as hell page turner. I love his references to real bars and shops in and around downtown NYC and I can't wait to see what comes of Joe's and Evie's relationship. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/16/2014

    " Fast paced. Easy read. Vampire noir-ish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Camille | 12/23/2013

    " My favorite of the three Joe Pitt books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 12/4/2013

    " Nobody writes popcorn fiction like Charlie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon | 11/21/2013

    " Outstanding follow up to already dead. I love the vision of Manhattan as a vampire haven. Truly one of the most original series in quite some time. A must read for vampire fans or fans of brutal pulp fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JDW Williams | 10/29/2013

    " With less exposition, this could've been a short story or novella. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 7/20/2013

    " I still can't figure out how the Vampyres manage to stay hidden from the rest of Manhattan. Are they a metaphor for the homeless, a segment of society that we see but don't see? Maybe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thacher Cleveland | 7/13/2013

    " A bit all over the place with the twists and turns but still consistently fun and satisfying. Knowing Huston, this book is the top of Joe's rollercoaster, and it's all downhill terribly from here on out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 6/7/2013

    " This one didn't do much for me. I'll read the next one in the series to see if I'm gonna continue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer | 4/8/2013

    " Sequels usually suck. This one don't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iffy | 4/3/2013

    " the second of Already Dead... AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C.S. | 3/20/2013

    " Still not sure how I feel about this series. I like the character but the story was still a little weak for me. I own the third one and that is going to be my last if it doesn't pick up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 1/9/2013

    " Second in the Joe Pitt series. More tales of a modern day vampire written in a noir style which once you get used to is actually cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 8/8/2012

    " Quick and violent read. Not as good as the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shonda Jefferis | 8/3/2012

    " Very good, quick, and entertaining read!! I liked it just as much as the first Joe Pitt novel and I'm ready to go on to the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mapman | 7/31/2012

    " This is the 2nd in the Joe Pitt series. Not as good as the first (Already Dead), but close! On to the 3rd book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 11/14/2011

    " I liked it even better than the first book. It was over all too soon and I'm jonesing for the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 8/26/2011

    " More of the same: competent, occasionally funny, braincandy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenj | 8/12/2011

    " Make sure you read the first book first. Other than that, if you are looking for a hard-boiled noir/urban vampire detective fantasy then it doesn't get any better than Joe Pitt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shonda | 6/16/2011

    " Very good, quick, and entertaining read!! I liked it just as much as the first Joe Pitt novel and I'm ready to go on to the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 5/27/2011

    " Hitting his stride with the sardonic, dark humor. Full of american noir anti-hero goodness. Action sequences are well done, if bloody, and good cultural relevance in the wake of dogfighting's heightened awareness since Michael Vick's conviction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rcharbon | 3/26/2011

    " Nothing wrong with generic genre work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 2/26/2011

    " If anything is better than Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt series, I don't know what it is. Charlie Huston is a master storyteller and Joe Pitt is the perfect noir character. I dearly love this series and believe everyone should read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thacher | 1/3/2011

    " A bit all over the place with the twists and turns but still consistently fun and satisfying. Knowing Huston, this book is the top of Joe's rollercoaster, and it's all downhill terribly from here on out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kat | 11/18/2010

    " Der erste Teil hat mir viel besser gefallen. Dieses Buch war mir zu blutig und vor allem zu kompliziert / konstruiert. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 10/8/2010

    " Good , if not better than the 1st Joe Pitt book. The thing I love about this series is , sure its pulp, its fast and to the point too. I love that it entertains without talking down to its audience. Its good, no make that great trash. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 8/7/2010

    " I really enjoy Huston's writing. I never really thought that I was a pulp fiction kind of gal but that all changed when I picked up my first Huston novel. This series is gritty and violent but very entertaining too "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/9/2010

    " Loved it! Already into the next one "
