From Publishers Weekly
Picking up where Cold Streets (2003) left off, Elrod's winning 10th Vampire Files novel finds nightclub-owning vampire Jack Fleming, who usually works for the "good guys" as a private detective in 1938 Chicago, on the other side of the law. When Jack agrees to fill in for his wounded gangster boss pal, Gordy Weems, he winds up nearly tortured to death at the hands of sadistic hood Hog Bristow. Jack gets his payback by killing Bristow, but must face the music after the arrival of the big boss from New York, Whitey Kroun. Though Jack manages to make nice with Kroun, he still has other problems. Bristow's rough treatment has left Jack with seizures, impaired vampiric hypnotic ability and an overwhelming craving for blood. A thug who wants Jack dead and the murder of a singer at Gordy's club further complicate an...

From Publishers Weekly
The ninth entry in Elrod's Vampire Files series offers clever characterization, wicked wit and palatable mayhem, played out on the chilly streets of 1938 Chicago (nicely evoked in Steve Stone's dark, wintry dust jacket art), six months after the action in Lady Crymsyn (2000). Vampire gumshoe Jack Fleming and his intrepid English partner, Escott, successfully rescue a kidnap victim, but find their heroics spoiled when it looks like the head kidnapper will get away with his nefarious deed. While bringing their socialite-psycho villain to justice, they also manage to become embroiled in a challenge to their gangster pal Gordy Weems's turf and to straighten out a love quadrangle involving Gordy, his radio actress girlfriend, Adelle Taylor, and her ex-husband and his new wife, Faustine Petrova, an exotic Russian...

From Publishers Weekly
Dracula lives! but more in name than spirit in 16 new period riffs on his legend. Going back to Bram Stoker's original novel, Elrod (Time of the Vampires) asked contributors to this anthology, "What ELSE was Dracula doing in London when he was not being chased by Van Helsing and company?" Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, in "Long-Term Investment," and Fred Saberhagen, in "Box Number Fifty," both have him duping ignorant human associates into elaborate schemes to conceal his coffins. Tanya Huff suggests he was drawn to social climbers and other predatory personalities in "To Each His Own Kind." In one of the book's most intriguing entries, Judith Proctor's "Dear Mr. Bernard Shaw," he is a theater patron who cannot understand how the deaths at the end of King Lear ennoble human suffering. Inevitably, Dracula rubs shoulders...

From Publishers Weekly
This decent if unoriginal vampire thriller, the sequel to the authors' Keeper of the King (1997), resumes the adventures of Richard d'Orleans, who became a vampire at some unspecified medieval date and had to leave home to avoid a fatal confrontation with his viciously abusive father. A tie-in to the Forever Knight TV show starring Bennett, who's also a stage and film actor, most of the book concerns a contemporary mystery, as Richard tries to save, then avenge, his godchildren and their mother. His enemies at first appear to be Colombian drug dealers, but the mystery complicates and recomplicates itself in classic and intelligent fashion. Interspersed with this contemporary action are more historical vignettes of Richard's past and progeny he was once Arthur's Sir Lancelot, and unlike many vampires, he...

Vampires and snipers and lust, oh my! Bennett, who stars as La Croix, vampire patriarch of TV's Forever Knight, and Elrod, author of Ace's Vampire Files series, cut their collaborative teeth on this tale of Arthurian vampires who fight modern terrorism. Richard d'Orleans, tournament champion and third son of a noble Norman family, is recruited into full-fanged vampirehood by the seductive Lady Sabra. After an initiation that perversely mixes sex and blood, Richard gets a new job opportunity as bodyguard to the legendary King Arthur. Bennett and Elrod then blithely skip a millennium or so, as Richard must save Canada's prime minister from a 1996 IRA assassination. In his spare time (while avoiding daylight), he must also find the Holy Grail, in order to heal Lady Sabra from the fatal beastliness inherent to even...
