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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The story line was interesting but found so many times I read without absorbing because of extended explanations causing my mind to wander from boredom.

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 downloaded this kindle book without paying much attention to what I was doing! I must confess I bought it by mistake, confusing the author with his famous namesake! I didn't like it of course but this is probably because I was expecting something completely different.
To do this one justice I should say that it is rather well-written for its genre and although there are a million vampire stories out there, if you are a fan, you will enjoy probably this one.
