    Amusing vampire romp

    In New Orleans, the High Krewe of Vlad Tepes commands Doodlebug Richelieu to appear before them. They stun him when they show him two comatose female vampires; one without her arms and the other without her legs. The Krewe wants the killer stopped so they order Doodlebug to find vampire Jules Duchon who has the ability to locate and kill the rogue. The only problem is that Doodlebug knows that Jules was transformed at his own request into 187 rats because he wanted to forget that his beloved Maureen was staked.---- With the help of his human assistant Daphne and 186 rats, Doodlebug transforms the rodents into Jules minus the sex organs (something had to give). Daphne searches for the head rat while Doodlebug tries to convert the ashes of Maureen back into a vampire. Jules agrees top assist the Krewe in finding a bloodthirsty killer.---- The undead of BRIDE OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE have little in common with the typical creature of the night that frequent horror movies and novels as this Krewe is campy and frequently withdraw from blood banks. The mystery is terrific as the vampires lack sleuthing skills and need Jules¿ expertise. Still this tale belongs to the quarter ton Jules, whose lack of sex organs apparently cost much of his vampiric skills so he bluffs human and bloodsucker alike. Andrew Fox brings cyberpunk to his cutting edge horror who-done-it that will keep readers wondering, laughing, and rooting for Jules who just keeps asking Y.---- Harriet Klausner

    Jules Rides Again!

    Jules Duchon, the 450 pound vampire who gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'morbidly obese,' is off on a new adventure that involves rats, resurrection, rock stars, mysterious mutilations, and shady land deals. This is a complex and multilayered story. The farther I read, the harder I laughed. Fox has really captured the spirit of New Orleans and has again added a new twist to an aging and often dusty genre. Anyone who enjoyed Fat White Vampire Blues will surely enjoy this sequel.

    Not as good as the first, but good

    This book wasn't as spectacular as I thought it was going to be after reading the first book. It held my interest at times, but other times I just wanted to throw it out the window. I didn't like the Detective stuff. I think the book could have done without all that.

    Jules is back!

    Read the first book 'FAT WHITE VAMPIRE BLUES'? No? Shame on you and go read it then get 'BRIDE OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE'. You did read it? Exxxcellent. This second entry in Jules Duchon universe is just as angaging and entertaining as the first. Jules is back bigger and better than ever...well, except for one minor detail (read the book, you'll know what I'm talking about). Trying to regain his true love Maureen, Jules gets tangled up in a 'whodunnit'. Someone is mutilating vampires in New Orleans and it's up to Jules to find out who, and why. The story really pulls you in with all the sub-plots. And with a few twists and turns thrown in you'll be up all night with a pot of chicory coffee (Jules' favorite) wanting to finish the book.

    A second helping of a deliciousness!

    I truly loved the first book (Fat White Vampire Blues) and was wondering how author Andrew Fox could top it -- well, he has! It was like visiting with a big, old, loveably curmudgeonly pal once again. The plot, with numerous twists and turns, ultimately lead to an ending I simply had not seen coming -- a one-two punch of laughs and intrigue! I highly recommend this fantastic read!!
