Then it whacks you on the back of the head, takes you straight to your knees before you realize what hit you.

“They hired us over the Internet, mailed us half the cash and promised the other half after we nailed the vampire."

I lowered Grief until it pointed straight at Rudy's crotch. "You two wouldn't recognize the Internet if a server fell on your heads. So give it to me straight this time, Rudy, before I lose my temper and make sure Junior grows up an only child.”

“It's vampire Barbie" ……….. "get a load of this," I said, " perfect makeup, perfect nails, perfect figure --- it makes me want to shove her head-first into a steaming pile of horse crap. Why is it you can never find a mounted police when you need one?" ……
"your ….late….wife?" I whispered.
