More About the Author

George P. Saunders occupies his time on Planet Earth in the lovely town of Beverly Hills, California. He is the author of the celebrated crime thriller Gray Area, along with ten other novels in the science fiction, young adult and horror genres, as well as non-fiction humor and satire. He has over 25 films either produced, directed or written and more than a dozen more which he has co-starred in with such notable celebrities as Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin in Hunt For Red October (as George Winston), Joey Travolta, Richard Lynch, C. Thomas Howell and Mickey Rooney. Saunders was the head writer on the reality series for Military Films during the Gulf War, wherein he worked with the Navy Seals and other combined elements of the United States Armed Forces. While not writing, acting or doing other entertainment related 'stuff', Saunders is known to enjoy a fine tequila on occasion, followed by a dry Cabernet.

An alcoholic and somewhat stupid cop is the star officer of the LAPD Monster Vice squad. See, he's courageous and doesn't get killed because, well... he's the hero. In spite of his being in an alcoholic haze most of the time, being totally incompetent and getting all his partners killed (our backup isn't here yet, so let's walk in to this den of vampires armed only with pistols, stand in a line and look around because someone might need rescuing) he's the only one who can fight the Grand Master Vampire. So far, silly but lots of blood and action.

Then it stops. The middle third of the story is page after page after page of exposition; an interview with an insane psychiatrist, a description of fungal diseases of palm trees (I kid you not), a remote viewing history lesson and bunches of other mostly irrelevant and very, very long descriptions.

Then the last third, where the author seems determined to shove every possible sexual deviation, psychological weirdness and drug usage in the readers face, no matter how silly or improbable. The hero reacts to these in such an over-the-top emotional way that I got bored. Enough with the angst, already!

The characters are caricatures, the most common way problems are resolved is deus ex machina and the whole story is like a parody of the tough-cop genre. If it wasn't for the blood, sex and drugs I'd think the author was trying to be funny. If so, he fails. If not, he really fails.

Monster Vice defines a new genre of horror/weird/twisted/get-the-author-to-a-shrink - the main hero has to engage in some kind of sexual practice every 24 hours, or else he turns into a bloodsucking vampire. Helping out in this endeavor is a new incarnation of Dracula, who now has a hot biker-chick as a partner. Dracula is a good guy in this book. All very amusing and different. Five stars for M. Saunders.

This book was so off the wall, but I liked it anyway. It kept me amused and it was nice to ready something totally different for a change.

I need more! And it was super funny. Pitts is a riot, and Jenny is the stuff of legends. Hats off!

This is a tongue-in-cheek read. Every cliche, every dumb joke a nd many statements of unbelievable understatement.

You will either laugh out loud or you will find another book to read.

This tickled my funny bone and I have to admit I enjoyed the book.

It was outside the box. Although the main character had potty mouth,alcoholic tendencies, and several bad habits, Pitts was a fun character. Overlook the wild stuff and read the crazy story.

Fast and fun - you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe (sometimes in fear and sometimes in Eeew!) but George Saunders always brings imagintive writing, interesting unusual characters and lots and lots of humor to great action/adventures like this one.

Love a good scary novel,and this one has it all, and then some!! Couldn't put it down - read it in one day. Pick up this book if you enjoy a crazy plot with some absurd characters!! Too much fun.
