Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn't all that impressive in a world where they've come out to mortals.
Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station's store. This gets him fangs - deep in a plot of vampire hunters, supernatural revolutionaries, and a millennium-old French knight determined to wipe out the supernatural.
Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to get out of the coffin.

Another Great Phipps Book!
Definitely. It was hilarious!
Peter was an easy guy to root for so he was definitely my favourite but he was backed by a good cast of fun secondary characters.
I felt like Hite gave a good performance of all of the major characters. He did have a couple of bad accents for a few very minor characters but on the whole I thought he was excellent. He got the tone of the story right at all times which was important as this was a dark comedy that balanced the hilarious moments and witty banter with some pretty dark moments.
Yes. I liked the characters and the story was definitely engaging.
The whole story was a lot of fun. The banter between Peter, David, and Melissa was hilarious and I do love the fact that Phipps packed the story full of fun pop culture references and jokes. The story turned out to be pretty dark as the vamps were definitely not the fluffy Twilight type but the humour and the witty banter helped keep the story from being to bleak.
I think I own all of Phipps books in audio and outside of his Supervillainy Saga books I think this is his most enjoyable world yet. The world is interesting and I loved how a lot of the stuff in the story was a clever analogy for everyday bigotry in modern society.
