Cover Art - "My Dead Body" by Charlie Huston

Here's the cover for My Dead Body by Charlie Huston, the fifth Joe Pitt book in his series of pulp-noir urban fantasies. The book releases October 17, 2009. If you have a taste for noir give this a try.

NOBODY LIVES FOREVER. NOT EVEN A VAMPYRE.

Just ask Joe Pitt. After exposing the secret source of blood for half of Manhattan’s Vampyres, he’s definitely a dead man walking. He’s been a punching bag and a bullet magnet for every Vampyre Clan in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, not to mention a private eye, an enforcer, an exile, and a vigilante, but now he’s just a target with legs.

For a year he’s sloshed around the subway tunnels and sewers, tapping the veins of the lost, while above ground a Vampyre civil war threatens to drag the Clans into the sunlight once and for all. What’s it gonna take to dig him up? Just the search for a missing girl who’s carrying a baby that just might be the destiny of Vampyre-kind. Not that Joe cares all that much about destiny and such. What he cares about is that his ex-girl Evie wants him to take the gig. What’s the risk? Another turn playing pigeon in a shooting gallery. What’s the reward? Maybe one shot of his own. What’s he aiming for? Nothing much. Just all the evil at the heart of his world.

  1. Wow, I was JUST rearranging my TBR shelf (after the 2-yr-old granddaughter got to it) and re-discovered a book that I forgot to read. It's Charlie Huston's Already Dead. Now I'll have to try it.

  2. Hi Doug!

    I do have a taste for noir, and urban fantasy, sounds like a book for me.

    Thanks for the heads up!

  3. Mardel kind of serendipity when that happens isn't it.

    Dottie it's quite different and very noir. Great dialogue.
