Publisher Comments:

It's like this: a series of bullet-riddled bad breaks has seen rogue Vampyre and terminal tough guy Joe Pitt go from PI for hire to Clan-connected enforcer to dead man walking in a New York minute. And after burning all his bridges, the only one left to cross leads to the Bronx, where Joe's brass knuckles and straight razor can't keep him from running afoul of a sadistic old bloodsucker with a bad bark and a worse bite. Even if every Clan in Manhattan is hollering for Joe's head on a stick, it's got to be better than trying to survive in the outer-borough wilderness.

So it's a no-brainer when Clan boss Dexter Predo comes looking to make a deal. All Joe has to do to win back breathing privileges on his old turf is infiltrate an upstart Clan whose plan to cure the Vyrus could expose the secret Vampyre world to mortal eyes and set off a panic-driven massacre. Not cool. But Joe's all over it. To save the Undead future, he just has to wade neck-deep through all the archenemies, former friends, and assorted heavy hitters he's crossed in the past. No sweat? Maybe not, but definitely more blood than he's ever seen or hungered for. And maybe even some tears — over the horror and heartbreaking truth about the evil men do no matter who or what they are.

Review:

"Huston imaginatively, logically explores the limits of the world he's created for Pitt to haunt....The answers to these questions might pierce even Pitt's leather-tough heart as he takes readers on another darkly entertaining ride." Booklist

Review:

"[Huston] creates a world that is at once supernatural and totally familiar, imaginative, and utterly convincing." The Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"Newcomers may find the relationships difficult to parse, but those familiar with the series should be enthralled." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Booted from mainstream Vampyre existence in Manhattan, Joe Pitt lives in a hovel in the shadow of Yankee stadium. But even here he's vulnerable, in this blistering novel from "one of the most remarkable prose stylists to emerge from the noir tradition" (Stephen King).

Synopsis:

Charlie Huston's] action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous.

-Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Half the Blood of Brooklyn

Praise for Charlie Huston and his Joe Pitt novels

In conceiving his world (a New York City divided by vampire clans, each with different reasons to hate Pitt), Huston gives a fading genre a fresh afterlife. Grade: ] A.

Larry Robinson, December 12, 2008 (view all comments by Larry Robinson)
If you are a fan of Charlie Huston's Joe Pitt vampire novels, you probably don't need my recommnedation. If you haven't read them, and you like a fast paced thriller, this series is for you. Every Last Drop is one of the stronger books in the series so far (this is the fourth in the series). Joe Pitt, the bad boy with a conscience, who kills with reckless abandon, see things in this book that turn even his stomach. An excellent addition to the series.
