In all honesty, I really got tired of the ongoing story (carried over from the two preceeding books in the series). Every time I thought some resolution might happen, yet another person gets beat up or somebody gets shot or there's more running and hiding. I just wanted the plot to actually move forward; it really wasn't that all complex once you got through the violence and posturing. It also got frustrating how the hero just kept taking damage. Part of what I've liked about this series is the ...more

I had only read short stories featuring Fleming; and I am pleased that a full length novel held up.

Fleming makes reading about vampires fun again - yes, he does have the aversion to killing humans that is so common in literature anymore (but PN Elrod has been doing this for awhile now), but he has a solid flair that fits in nicely as a club owner in the the slightly-shady sides of depression-era Chicago.

I love all of the Vampire Files books that I have read so far. They are sort of the hard-boiled detective in the 30s tale, except the detective is a vampire. This gives him a lot of abilities to help his friends and him self in sticky situations. He still gets the hell beaten out of him regularly.

I suck these books down like candy and can't wait for more. For fun, gangs, and nightclubs, these cannot be beat!

Would have been better if books 6 & 7 had been packaged together since they constitute a single long story. But book 6 was in Volume 2 and this was still a good read.
