Vampire-wannabes, a beautiful client and two Dachshunds that might poop in his shoes if their treat ration doesn’t improve. Can you solve the case or will you die laughing?
How much trouble can a typo cause? A lot it turns out as the aspiring P.I. finds himself sucked into investigating paranormal creatures he doesn’t believe in.
Vampires, ghosts and werewolves aren’t real, right?
He lives in Rochester, where the ancient architecture, cobbled streets and brooding, castle-filled landscape breeds creatures in the shadows faster than darkness fills a corner. Everyone has a case for him it seems, but between his mother’s demands for grandchildren, the unsolicited advice of a deluded occult bookshop owner and the unhelpful help of his friends, he will have his work cut out just paying his bills.
Then she asks for his help. Lady cop Amanda Harper is everything he wants, and she wants his help to stop a killer. Dubbed ‘the vampire’ he has claimed three lives already and is unlikely to stop until someone stops him.
Determined to solve the case just so he can impress her, hoping he won’t dribble when he talks to her and trying really hard to ignore the thoughts coming from his trousers, you can expect mayhem to ensue as the notoriety of the case brings out vampire hunters that see him as a rival and vampire-wannabes that just want him dead.
It’s a hilarious headlong, fast-paced thrill ride to a finish you will never see coming.
Steve Higgs is the author of the Blue Moon Investigations Series and a former 25 year Army veteran. He lives in the South East of England in the middle of the places his books are set with a trio of lazy sausage dogs.
He is constantly bemused by the stupid people he meets on a daily basis and likes nothing better than to draw inspiration from the utter rubbish they convince themselves could be true. The central character’s parents are in no way based on his own. Definitely, definitely not.
Influenced by Jim Butcher, Stephen King, Kim Harrison, Derek Landy, Lee Child, and Janet Evanovich to name a few, his work will always be a mix of action and thriller mixed with situational comedy.
