“Gritty urban fantasy and hard-boiled noir packed into a hand grenade of awesome!” ―Mario Acevedo, author of Werewolf Smackdown
“Those who enjoy police action mixed with urban fantasy may want to try this series launch.”―Library Journal, starred review
“The buddy-cop formula gets an undead twist with Alex―also known as the pharaoh Menkaure, reanimated to carry out an eternal duty―and Marcus, his vampiric colleague, who serve as cops in a special paranormal unit. Between the two of them, they have several thousand years' worth of superpowers and martial aptitude. The action is gritty, cinematic, and unrelenting...the worldbuilding is intriguing (as a figure drawn from Egyptian mythos, Alex injects fresh blood into undead tropes), and the reader runs no chance of growing bored during the tense race to the finish, in which a confrontation with an old enemy lays the groundwork for a potential sequel. Fans of urban fantasy, noir, and tightly choreographed action scenes will enjoy the blood and bullets in this adrenaline-heavy ride through crime scenes and secret societies.”―Kirkus Reviews
“Inventive and cleverly crafted with a unique premise, Haspil's urban fantasy is absolutely gripping. With strong, intelligent storytelling, distinctive, vivid characters, and gritty, edgy dialogue, Haspil will capture readers. Alex is a compelling, powerful hero and Marcus, his partner, is a strong and enthralling counterpart. With an intricate plot filled with action and intrigue, Haspil lends a fresh voice to urban fantasy with his exciting and riveting debut.”―RT Book Reviews, four stars
“This action-packed and fast-paced story begins with a murder investigation, plunging the reader into a world rife with intrigue, corruption, and a general sense of unrest....Haspil weaves elements from the old noir films as the detectives race to bringdown a conspiracy to sabotage the vampires’ safe blood source. Fans of Jim Butcher will enjoy a fresh take on this supernatural crime novel that puts itsown spin on the genre. Part crime novel and part fantasy, Graveyard Shift is a bloody good read.” ― Booklist

But this book is more than a story about a mummy that hunts vampires. It's also a police procedural of the type you can tell that the author has done the research into tactics, techniques and procedures, it helps to add realism to a story about vampires in modern society.
Bottom line, if you are looking for an urban fantasy book with compelling characters, and an interesting plot, this is the book for you. I could not put this book down and upon finishing it, has me wanting to learn more about these characters and what will happen next!
