Publisher's Summary

New York has a problem few are aware of. Creatures of myth and darkness prowl the night-shrouded streets, preying on those who won’t be missed. At least, those are the rules. Bodies are turning up, and their deaths are far from natural. Our kind’s existence depends on remaining nothing more than folklore and fairy tales, but someone has decided to break the rules. Now, it’s my job to stop a conspiracy before it threatens to expose the truth about vampires and werewolves. My name is Leo Malone, and when things go bump in the night, I bump back. If the price is right.

Have to share the news!!

Well, I’ve not even finished this book, but can’t wait to tell the world about this find!!
I’m completely hooked!!
I was on the fence about listening to this book as it’s not my go-to genre, but boy is it my genre now!!
It’s like a noire, detective, vamp, witty story and I love it!
This is the first time I’ve come across the narrator, so I don’t yet know if it’s his usual voice, but he reads this book with a perfect detective noire voice which hooked me perfectly into the story!
I’m enthralled by this book and I’m devastated that there’s a wait for the next...!

Supernatural Private Eye

A snarky supernatural detective is not a particularly new premise, but the author does a very good job of making both him and the story an interesting one.

The story starts out as a relatively simple one with the PI in question, the vampire Leo Malone, being hired to investigate the disappearance of a werewolf, but matters escalate quite quickly as this turns out to only be one part of a larger plot that causes a lot of problems for our protagonist even if he is being paid by more than one interested party to investigate it.

The author did a very good job of quickly fleshing out the world and the rules for the supernatural inhabitants in it while also keeping the action moving along at a frantic pace without it seeming too rushed at any point either.

I have not listened to anything else that this narrator has done before, but I found his performance to be a nice enhancement of the story with him nicely bringing the sarcastic and somewhat disconnected from humanity hero to life, while also giving distinct voices to the supporting cast.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and will be looking out for subsequent ones in the series and others from the same author.
