Suppose there really were vampires. Dark. Stalking. Destroying. They’d have to be killed, wouldn’t they? Of course they would. But what kind of fools would try to make a living at it?

You don’t just kill vampires for the money—you do it for the satisfaction. You do it because somebody has to. You do it no matter what it does to you. And you drink—a lot. Some jobs just suck. This one bites.

But nobody does it better than Jack Crow, the leader of Vampire$ Inc. His crack team of hunters takes down the blood suckers with a lethal combination of cojones and crossbows.

After members of Jack’s team are ambushed and slaughtered, however, the survivors need to rethink their strategy. With a new recruit from the Vatican— a priest who’s not afraid to wield a stake—and a sharpshooter loaded up with silver bullets, it’s payback time. The only problem is that the vampires have no intention of going down easy. They have their own hit list—and Jack Crow’s name is scrawled in blood right at the top.

Bestselling author John Steakley’s vampire classic is an exciting blend of horror and western genres, a twenty-first-century Ghostbusters with an edge.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[The team’s] death-defying bravado and warm male friendships are as intense as those in any soldier-hero epic…Vampire$ is one gaudy, action-packed novel. The men are men, the women are vulnerable, and the vampires are mean, ugly monsters…you’ll love it.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • Vampire$ is an emotionally impactive audiobook that surprises.”


  • “This is exciting and surprising stuff…a real genre-bender that keeps the best elements of both.”


  • “Gives a closer, longer look at violent vampire-hunting than anything else to date, often at a breathtaking pace.”

    " It makes me sad. This reclusive author has hated everything that he has ever written. Disregard the film based on this book. They butchered it. The book is straightforward. Good story. Jack Crowe rocks! "

    " Okay, so this is the book that the Carpenter movie was based on (the one with James Woods and that Baldwin) - but "based" is probably too generous. The plots are drastically different and the book (as usual) is much, much better. "
