Detective Jimmy Black's life as an accidental crime lord and Vampire Master of Charlotte has him longing for the days when the bad guys had neon signs above their heads and a couple of well-placed bullets won the day. Now he spends more time balancing books than kicking butts, and that doesn't make for a happy vampire.
When a missing person case lands in the lap of Black Knight Investigations, Jimmy and his partner, Greg Knightwood, jump happily back into action—until their missing person rises as an uncontrollable vampire and all signs point to a supernatural coup orchestrated by an unknown vampire of immense power. With the case going sideways, more missing girls, and a new cop in town way too curious about Jimmy's perennial youth, life in Charlotte is about to get interesting again.

action-adventure, vampires, urban-fantasy, snark-fest I never read a Hartness book I didn't like and snicker my way through! This one is not a good starting place, but it's great for being intriguing and wanting to go back and read earlier ones. The characters certainly are and the plot is ingenious! Happy dance! I requested and received a free ebook copy from Bell Bridge Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
A solid urban fantasy. It is not his best work however it is a solid fun read in the series that you can sink your teeth into. If you are a fan of his enjoy. It is part of a series so their are a few references to earlier events. However not enough that you can not reason it out and read as a stand alone or first novel.
