The worst book in the series yet. Not only was the plot kinda boring, Jack's sudden bad reaction to hypnosis, his woe is me whining, his reluctance to come clean to Escott and the way everybody and their uncle suddenly managed to get the drop on him made me actually dislike him a bit and that has never happened before. Jack is quite a likable, sweet guy so this... this was a real shock. The most interesting part was the introduction of Kyler. I'm curious where that storyline's headed.

Overall, qu
One of the best vampire stories I've read. There's a little romance (it's really hard to find a vampire story that doesn't), but it is 90% very entertaining story line. If you like this genre, I would not pass these novels up.

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.
Starting to lose interest in this series, I have the next one on hold at the library so I'll probably read it, but unless it's great I don't know if I'll read any more.

If I can get one person, who reads urban fantasy, to go back and read this series, I'll have done my job as a reader, reviewer and librarian.

Introducing some interesting characters. Curious about how they'll tie in later.
Kevin Connery
Not as much a serial this time, though it does end leaving the plot open.
