This is the 10th book in the series and I haven't read any of the previous, so I had no idea what to expect. After a relatively slow start reminescent of some of the TV series where the main character solves a small case at the beginning and then moves on to the major case of the episodes it quite quickly turns into a fast paced, intense, witty story of classic gangster Chicago of the 1930s. With vampires. Loved it. (I should definitely get a hold of the rest, at least the next one, especially i ...more

These books get better with each book. Lots of fun. It left one plot string not completely resolved, so I'm looking forward to the next book (now on order). I also figured out P. N. Elrod is writing two other series as well, so I may sample them.

I broke a rule and read this book out of sequence. It was the only one my library had! Shameless of me but I'd heard such good things about the books that I was compelled to try it anyway! If it was easier to find the earlier books, I would read them all in order because this book was well worth the effort to understand everything that had happened before. The vampire myth is very old-school but that is understandable given that the series isn't part of this "new wave" of paranormal.

Absolutely awesome. It's not even about the plot - which admittedly wasn't as twisty or mysterious as usual - but all about Jack's character development. The story was so intense that by the time the end came around, I honestly had no idea what he was going to do that hadn't already been done. Cold Streets did not fail to deliver another tense ending, with serious repercussions that aren't so easily dismissed. Very excited to see what this means for the next book!

1930s noir and a vampire with a heart who interacts with the mob.

P. N. Elrod is amazing in her depiction of the time period. You can see, smell, feel, and hear it as you read.

Nothing especially wonderful about this book to make it stand out in my mind, but nothing especially awful either. Just a good solid middle-of-the-road read.

It's been awhile since I read one of these. It was nice to get back to Jack Fleming's world. You'd like these, Cynthia.

A really different vampire book. I wasn't emotionally invested in it, but it was an interesting read.
