This was the first horror book I ever read, back when I was in high school. It's basically like an action-horror story, with a Hollywood homicide detective battling the forces of darkness.

Interesting characters, suspenseful set pieces, great pace and offers a neat twist on the typical vampire story. Also feels very cinematic. ...more

This one really drags. The characters are all stereotypes moving through a milieu of Los Angeles street life that reads as if it were lifted straight from movies about Los Angeles street life. All of this could be forgiven if it moved quickly and was done with style. However, there was too much uninteresting characterization and hardly any action at all.
The best part of this book was Jake Hull. He was my favorite :P

It was a 'sucking good read'. I loved the suspense. But, I love vampire anything.
