Jack Fleming was an investigative journalist in Prohibition-era Chicago until he got shot by an unknown assassin, bitten by his vampire girlfriend, and became one of the undead. Now, this nice-guy nosferatu has a bunch of crazy vampire hunters on his trail armed with crosses, silver bullets, and sharp wooden stakes. He doesn't know how they found out about him or why they are ?out for his blood,? but it's not a problem for this street-wise gumshoe, until someone starts shooting. Jack himself may be bulletproof, but his friends are not. And Jack is determined to get some answers, even if it kills him?again. It's a case of the living versus the undead. But who's hunting whom?… (mais)

2nd in the Vampire Files series. This one has Jack being chased by some vampire hunters. He has a new girlfriend now and is finally giving up on his search for Maureen. However his stopping the run of his newspaper ads in the classifieds brings up another unexpected visitor. Super fast read and pretty much non-stop action. ( )

I enjoyed this one more than the first book in the series. This was more fun. It had a serious element to it but it had its fun bits too. I was either gripped to the book, wanting to know what will happen next or having a laugh. The vampire hunters were quite fun. Loved learning more about Maureen too. I really hope she turns up at some point. I really wanna meet this mystery woman of Jacks :) roll on book 3 ( )

Synopsis: Jack Flemming was a reporter; now he's one of the undead. His best friend, Charles Escott hires him, occasionally, to help with his some of his investigations. However, in this case Jack needs Escott to do some investigating for him. Jack is hoping he will find his first love, Maureen; in the mean time Jack has to protect his current love, Bobbie from a bunch of misguided vampire hunters.
Review: This is a twist on vampires in that Jack doesn't fit the molds of 'sculptured beauty' or 'monstrous'. The vampire role is almost an aside while the mystery takes center stage. Interesting. ( )

Lifeblood by P.N. Elrod is the second book in the Vampire Files series. The series is set in a gangster-dominated Chicago of the 30s, and revolves around Jack Fleming, a vampire, and his friend Charles Escott who is a private eye.

In Vampire Files #2, Jack suddenly finds himself chased by a series of bad guys, and has to work out who is trying to kill him and why. There are some unexpected twists along the way, and overlaid in the story is the greater mystery of what happened to Maureen, the vampire who turned him and then disappeared.

As with other books in the series, the tone is wry, the story is interesting, the premise is intriguing, and the supporting cast of characters add to the fun. This is a good twist on a couple of old themes - noir fiction & vampire tale -- and they work well together. Good fun. ( )
