Great book, you can tell this guy has made some good movies. I love apocalyptic novels and this one takes the scientist's view of how an "outbreak" of vampires happens in NYC. He provides just the right amount of back story to feed a historical appreciation of vampire lore and adds in some science & gore to keep you interested. I just started the second novel in the series and I can already tell that Fet the rat exterminator is my favorite character although Gus the gang-banger is a close second. I definitely recommend this book but just don't read it while you're eating . . .
