Publisher: Vamptasy Publishing
Series: Book One
Detective Danny Mancini is on a case, following a murder suspect. When he catches him, he finds out that the perp isn't even human: he's a 200 year old rogue vampire!
The department doesn't believe him, and puts him on early retirement, despite his many years of service to the Chicago Police Department, which sends him into a downward spiral.
Two years later, Danny gets an invitation from the beautiful, young and very attractive Detective Angelica Cross to join a secret branch of the FBI to help her track down Vincent, the wayward vamp.
But renegade werewolves, meddling immortal witches and Danny's strange visions of a life lived a century ago with Angelica make things more difficult than it should be.
The only people who'd believe him are the PID (Paranormal Investigative Devision) which is where he meets Angelica Cross. It wasn't hard to figure her out, and I thought the last name was funny in an ironic way. But then, I was a fan of the Alex Cross series and then there's the fact that they're fighting vampires. Lily had a few sneaky things like that in the book which were entertaining to come across.
The pacing felt a bit rushed and I had a hard time latching onto the characters, but the action and gore was always a treat. Marcini is a hot-head alcoholic and a shut-in with a wicked gag reflex. When the author tossed him into a group setting at the PID, I thought he'd lose his mind. He did pretty good and with Angelica at his side they made a great butt-kicking duo.
There were a few coveted deaths that I found to be a bit anti-climatic, but Vincent's taunting proved him to be the most suitable bad-guy.
