Ah, what a crazy book to have read! It was fun, though. Not my typical pick to read but it takes place down the highway from my house so I had to read it.

Rocky Flats is gone now, there's just a highly contaminated site where the weapons plant once stood. This story takes place at the time of the decommissioning about a decade ago.

There's a vampire who is also a veteran and private investigator, aliens (!), nymphomaniacs (!), and evil Ukrainian vampire hunters. The story could have actually done without the nymphos but I suppose it was all part of the craziness. My serious nature being what it is, I could have read this book with just the vampire driving around in his 1962 Polara doing PI stuff and been quite happy. (It's hard to take this book seriously!)

Here's a few fun quotes from a local's perspective:

"I was driving my '62 Dodge Polara north on Highway 93. . . .Past the intersection with Highway 72, I turned right at the first traffic light. . . ." (Now there's a snap shot of my morning commute.)

"Jenny Calhoun lived in Arvada, a bedroom suburb right smack in the center of the radioactive smoke plume should Rocky Flats catch fire, like it has twice before." (I was planning on calling in sick when they did the controlled burn this summer on the former site, but due to negative public reaction, they've canceled it.)

Here's the old view of the site, now gone.



And here's 93 and 72 for all those interested.

Meh. A lot of telling me stuff, rather than showing me. ( )

Definitely not my usual genre, but I was interested b/c the protagonist is a Chicano war veteran. Pretty fun vampire novel. Mostly fluff. ( )

One of my favorite series.

Felix returns from the Iraq war with a disdain for daylight, and a thirst for blood. 9-5 jobs wouldn't work, but PI suited his vampirisum well.

The titles on this series are racy, but the content is pure paranormal, modern, mystery. With a fun streak running through it. ( )

I'm going to give it 3.3 stars. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. ( )

Para mi hermana Sylvia, por sus años de apoyo y fe
Many thanks to Diana Gill at HarperCollins, and to her diligent assistant, Will Hinton. A special note of gratitude to my agent, Scott Hoffman of PMA Literary and Film Management, Inc. for listening to my elevator pitch - while in an elevator - and then agreeing to give my manuscript a read. And to his colleague, Peter Miller, for his support. I couldn't have gotten this far without the wisdom and camaraderie offered by my friends in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. I owe much to my fellow critique members - many of whom have come and gone over the years with special thanks to Jeanne Stein, Tom and Margie Lawson, Sandy Meckstroth, Jeff Shelby, Heidi Kuhn, and Jim Cole. Mil gracias to Tanya Mote and Anthony García of El Centro Su Teatro for their encouragements and amistad. To my family who has always stood beside me: my Tía Angélica; siblings Sylvia (and her partner Janet), Armando; my late sister Laura; and my sons, Alex and Emil.
