Because when a thug blasts several bullets through Jack's back Whiteman he does not dieand discovers that he is a vampire as well! First in an exciting new vampire adventure series Original Jack Fleming, a reporter in 1930's Chicago knew that he would become a vampire after he died, he just didn't think it would happen so quickly Unfortunately, after awakening undead, he doesn't remember who killed him or why and he'd really like to know He ends up becoming friends with a private agent who takes Jack on as a client If Jack can keep them both from being killed in the process of solving Jack's murder, it will definitely be a win for the good guys I'd read Elrod's Gentleman Vampire series which I really liked but hadn't wanted to read this series However, it turns out to be very appealing Jack isn't naive but he's a good man (they shouldn't have to be mutually exclusive) and it makes it easy to root for him At the same time, although short, this isn't a quick read I like her take on vampires the movie Dracula had just been released and gangland Chicago, after Capone, is also interesting She covered segregation and poverty and gets a lot to the fore in 200 pages. Another fun adventure with Jack, newspaperman turned vampire in 1930's Chicago It was well read by the same guy who still seems to think a Boston accent is the same as an English one, but that was the only rough part.The story has plenty of twists, turns, action in it The characters are likeable or not, as the case may be, but are pretty well drawn interesting The world seems quite authentic, although I'm no expert It's fun reading about the old cars such I'd listen to the 3d one, but my library doesn't have any , unfortunately The only other stuff by Elrod are urban/PNR short story books she's edited I can't handle anyPNR right now I'm burned out on the run of the mill vampires, so I'll let that be my recommendation for this series It's not.
Part of my 2020 Social Distancing Readathon3.5 starsAn interesting mix of the hardboiled detective genre and the vampire novel Think Chelsea Quinn Yarbro and the Saint Germain Chronicles, that kind of vampire Jack Fleming is basically a good guy and retains this MO even after his transformation.Elrod has some interesting ideas for using the vampire mythos, plus she has set it in an interesting time period Vampire vs gangsters Its difficult to avoid cliches when using either of these story lines, but Elrod doesn't go overboard.I have the next 2 books available during this time of physical isolation, so I'll be seeing what other adventures Jack gets up to soon. The main character, Jack Flemming, is a reporter in Chicago during the Depression Era He wakes up one morning with no memory of the past weekoh, and he is also a vampire I think the story was suposed to be a mobster mystery with a little dash of paranormal thrown in for good measure Unfortunately, it didn't work for me The characters all felt flat, and I couldn't bring myself to care about what happened to them The whole vampire angle didn't help the plot along at all, either Toward the end, the pace picked up ever so slightly, but still not enough to make it worthwhile In fact, theI think about it, the angrier I am that I wasted my time on this garbage Boo! Two thumbs down!
