it was ok
bookshelves: mystery, urban-fantasy, horror
Read in September, 2010

While its protagonist is a vampire, it does not feel like part of the recent vampire trend, probably because it was written twenty years ago. Set in the 1930s, it is an interesting twist on the typical noir story in that the protagonist is an amnesiac vampire who has to investigate his own recent murder. The other male lead seems to be a British version of William Powell. I found myself mildly nauseated by the vampire sex scences, which when you think about it, is really how it ought to be. While lacking the charm of "Hecate's Eye" in "Strange Brew," the short story that convinced me to read the first of the Vampire files, it is still a good mystery with plenty of Chicago gangster flavor.

I later downgraded it two stars since I realized I had the rest of the books in my living room and there was no way I was going to read them.
