Nearly five stars. From about page 50 on, this book reads like the vampire detective version of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" - this is a good thing - an intense, visceral mix of action and horror that doesn't let up until protagonist has burned pretty much every bridge he has. Author Charlie Huston is building up to one intense - and ultimately doomed - finale in the tragic story that is the love of Joe Pitt and Evie, and isn't that what all good noir is about, in the end?
