From Booklist

After vampire Jules Duchon, hero of Fat White Vampire Blues [BKL Ap 15 03], lost the love of his afterlife, Maureen, he transformed himself into 187 white rats, hoping to escape his pain. Now his old cohort, Doodlebug, who desperately needs Jules' help, has tracked down and reassembled all but one rat, and the missing one contains a crucial piece of equipment. The leader of the High Krewe of Vlad Tepes, New Orleans' most exclusive vampire group, has ordered Doodlebug to track down the person responsible for maiming several younger High Krewe vampires. Motivated in part by Doodlebug's promise to try to resurrect Maureen, Jules does agree to help. The case intensifies when Jules discovers a link to the black vampire group he previously butted heads with. But the black vampires are upset by the deaths of several pastors, and it appears that someone may be targeting both groups of vampires. Fox follows up Jules' first adventure with more laugh-out-loud vampire exploits and fun. Kristine Huntley

From the Inside Flap

After morphing into 187 very large white rats in the name of self-preservation, Jules Duchon is back to his portly self, a member of that secret class of New Orleans citizens known as the undead. Though he would like nothing better than to spend his nights raising hell and biting flesh in his beloved French Quarter, duty calls when an exclusive club of blue blood vampires demands that the 450-pound cabbie find out who is attacking its young and beautiful members. Adding insult to injury, he has to enlist the help of a former foe: a black vampire named Preston.
What's a vampire to do? Without the love of a woman to ease his pain, Jules isn't convinced that his undead life is worth living. He doesn't desire Doodlebug (she may be a woman now but Jules knew her back when she was just a boy) any more than he longs for Daphne, a rat catcher who nourishes a crush the size of Jules. No, only Maureen will do. Once a beautiful stripper with nothing but curve after curve to her bodacious body, now she is mere dust in a jar. But Jules will move heaven and earth to get her back . . . even if it means pulling her back from the dead.

Revisiting the locale and characters that made his first novel, FAT WHITE VAMPIRE BLUES so memorable, Andrew Fox conjures an even more intriguing adventure for his corpulent bloodsucker, Jules Duchon. This time out, Jules is bullied by the vampire elders of New Orleans (known as the "High Krewe of Vlad Tepes") into investigating a series of attacks against their clan, serial dismemberings that have left the unfortunate immortals comatose, sans various appendages. To expose this new evil, Jules must team with long time allies (Doodlebug Richelieu, his transsexual protégé), bitter enemies (Preston, a member of his nemesis' Malice X's posse), and new friends (rat expert and transplanted Californian, Daphne Petruko). Complicating matters, Jules continues to seek a way to resurrect Maureen, his murdered vampiric paramour, even as he pursues his unorthodox investigation.

Fox trods familiar territory in BRIDE; indeed, much of what powered the first novel (mainly Fox's sense of place, and his affection for his cast) drives the second. But in BRIDE, readers find themselves in the hands of a more experienced, more confident storyteller, one who writes with considerably more assurance and panache. Striking a delicate balance between horror, humor, and pathos, Fox takes his fat white vampire on a rollicking, frightening adventure, all the while honoring, updating, and poking sly fun at the hoariest of horror movie and mystery novel clichés. Readers will find themselves alternately laughing and shuddering, sympathizing with even the oddest of motivations Fox provides for his quirky cast. He also expertly toys with his audience's expectations.

I bought the book "Bride of the Fat White Vampire" because I'd just finished "Fat White Vampire Blues." Together they tell the story of fat vampire hero of the first novel, Jules Duchon and his beloved Maureen who made him a vampire. I'm not going into detail about the two books, others have already done that. What I will say is that these two novels turn the current spate of vampire stories on their collective ear. The young beautiful undead depicted in so many vampire books and movies are not here. The people are not beautiful Glampire types but working class people in the seedier parts of New Orleans where life is hardscrabble and not very pretty. The author, Andrew Fox must have spent some time in an area like this because his descriptions put me right there and his characters were so interesting I actually cared about them. I read a few reviews that said the first book was better than the second but I thought they were both equally good. I give this book five stars and would like to see some further adventures of Jules and Maureen, perhaps a prequal of the time she first made Jules a vampire and his adventures up through the 1940s and '50s. Anyways, if you like vampire novels filled with handsome, tragic, aristocratic characters and swooning beauties, these novels may not be for you.

Jules Duchon, the 450 pound vampire who went ratty at the end of "Fat White Vampire Blues," pulls himself together (mostly) for a new set of hilarious adventures in this book. Sherlock Holmes he ain't, but in this novel he does start to resemble Columbo and Clouseau rolled into one.

Will Jules be able to figure out who is mutilating the younger members of the High Krewe? Will he be able to avoid the black vampires who gave him so much trouble in the first book? Will Jules ever find another car he can fit into comfortably? Will Doodlebug be able to help Jules resurrect his lost love, Maureen? Will Jules be reunited with his missing body part in time for the wedding night (if there is one)?

Those questions, and many more, are answered in this multi-layered and highly amusing story. Fox has really outdone himself this time. I hope we'll be seeing more of Jules in the future.

What do you do when your girlfriend has been turned to ashes and you are 100+ rats? Solve a case of mysterious vampire disappearances, of course. Andrew Fox brings back Jules Duchon, his overweight underconfident hero from Fat White Vampire Blues for another round of escaping death and making things right...the hard way as usual.

Warning, if you are offended by obscenity or sexual content, this novel contains both, but no more than many contemporary novels. It doesn't really detract from Fox's off-off-beat vampire tale.

I'm a nobody but I loved this book and Fox's earlier tome. This one's a mighty tasty outre novel about contemporary vampires in New Orleans. And, thank whatever gods may be, there's nothing Anne Rice about them. Delicious and savory but be warned this is a sequel and you absolutely first must read Fox' Fat White Vampire Blues.

In New Orleans, the High Krewe of Vlad Tepes commands Doodlebug Richelieu to appear before them. They stun him when they show him two comatose female vampires; one without her arms and the other without her legs. The Krewe wants the killer stopped so they order Doodlebug to find vampire Jules Duchon who has the ability to locate and kill the rogue. The only problem is that Doodlebug knows that Jules was transformed at his own request into 187 rats because he wanted to forget that his beloved Maureen was staked.

With the help of his human assistant Daphne and 186 rats, Doodlebug transforms the rodents into Jules minus the sex organs (something had to give). Daphne searches for the head rat while Doodlebug tries to convert the ashes of Maureen back into a vampire. Jules agrees top assist the Krewe in finding a bloodthirsty killer.

The undead of BRIDE OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE have little in common with the typical creature of the night that frequent horror movies and novels as this Krewe is campy and frequently withdraw from blood banks. The mystery is terrific as the vampires lack sleuthing skills and need Jules' expertise. Still this tale belongs to the quarter ton Jules, whose lack of sex organs apparently cost much of his vampiric skills so he bluffs human and bloodsucker alike. Andrew Fox brings cyberpunk to his cutting edge horror who-done-it that will keep readers wondering, laughing, and rooting for Jules who just keeps asking Y.
