Synopsis

Spiked with "a flavor of the supernatural" (Science Fiction Chronicle), P. N. Elrod's series, The Vampire Files, goes one step beyond detective noir. Its hero is Jack Fleming, a private detective on the right side of the law-but on the wrong side of the living-in post-prohibition Chicago. This vampire-turned-gumshoe will take on mobsters, monsters, and everything in between. Now, in Lady Crymsyn, Fleming tries to find a good-time girl gone bad, who may have been the victim of a premature burial...

Praise for The Vampire Files series:

"Elrod's treatment of the practical aspects of vampirism is clever and refreshing."-Booklist

"Echoes of Hammett and Chandler abound...an entertaining exercise in supernatural noir."-Publishers Weekly

"Plenty of action, full of twists and betrayals, and the quirky characters and many touches of period flavor keep things amusing."-Locus

"Snappy vampire-with-a-conscience yarn, laced with blackish humor."-Kirkus Reviews
