Three years ago, high school student Veronica Fortune witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. Now armed and dangerous, she sets out to hunt down the very thing that destroyed her life.

That is, until she disappears.

Spinoza is a private investigator who specializes in finding the missing. He's good at what he does. Damn good. But he's also a recovering alcoholic and a royal mess. Hired to find Veronica, Spinoza won't let his personal demons — or demons of any kind — get in the way of finding the truth about the missing girl.

Now following a bizarre set of clues that leads him into stranger and stranger territory, Spinoza is about to come face-to-face with something legendary...and something hungry for blood.
My Thoughts

I absolutely loved this books of course I love anything to do with Vampires. J.R. Rain has done it again with this book. His style of writing detailing the people in the book so you can close your eyes and picture them like you are right there watching everything unfold. The humor and wit he puts into his characters is awesome. I even like how he mentions characters from another book really great.

This is a great story a Private Investigator in search for a womans adopted granddaughter who has been missing longer than normal for her. The twist the girl believes she is a true vampire slayer. Veronica as she is known was on the hunt for one particular man "vampire" believed to have killed her parents and Spinoza was going to find her come hell or high water. He was the best in the business and that was why Detective Hammond of the LAPD referred the grandmother to him.

I enjoyed how during the search for Veronica you learn about Spinoza's life, the trials he has gone through to get him where he is now. The loss of his wife and son the alcohol issues and the reoccurring nightmares he has. He shares this with his buddy Detective Hammond and his girlfriend so its really great really brings you into the story more.

I just have really fallen for J.R. Rains style of writing and just downloaded 6 more books of his. Great job.
