    The Fifth Pitt Casebook is a great private investigator NYC fantasy

    The vampyres of Manhattan are outraged with private eye Joe Pitt; they want to drain him slowly dry for exposing EVERY LAST DROP of their blood supply. Having lived in the sewers where he feasted on the lost, Joe figures he will return to his underground abode waiting for one the vampyre clans from Manhattan or the other boroughs to find him.

    As civil war between the clans seems coming, his friend, skin flick producer Chubby, persuades Joe to help a pregnant woman who insists a vampyre is her unborn's sire. Knowing what she means if her baby is born healthy though he still wants to reject the protection case, his former girlfriend persuades Joe to return above ground subject to his usual beatings from his enemies. At the same he uses diabolical tactics to maneuver the various fighting groups to insure the supernatural civil war is between his enemies.

    The Fifth Pitt Casebook (see Every Last Drop) is a great private investigator NYC fantasy (I say NYC not just Manhattan as he did spend a stint insuring the flow of Half The Blood In Brooklyn). Joe is a hardboiled vampiric detective who even has a favorite East River body dumping ground. This time he alienates more than just the Coalition as seemingly every sect in Manhattan want to drink EVERY LAST DROP of his blood and abduct the pregnant female who will make that group the most powerful. Although not easy to just enter Joe's caseload with MY DEAD BODY as so much has happened to send him scurrying in and out of the sewers more frequently than Ed Norton ever did, fans of the saga will enjoy his latest bloody caper all because of a baby.

    The End?

    If this is, indeed, the end of the Joe Pitt saga, it was a wild and wonderful ride. With "My Dead Body," Huston saved the best 'til last.

    I Also Recommend:

    An Entertaining And Apt Finale

    In this gritty and gripping conclusion to to the 'Joe Pitt' series, Joe interacts with his 'vampyre' enemies again as he attempts to recover a friend's pregnant teenage daughter. Although the story's flow is occasionally slowed by explanatory dialogue and contemplative musings, the narrative is fast-paced and punctuated by explosive action and brutal violence. The story culminates in a four-way showdown featuring the heads of three NYC vampyre clans and Joe. Further, a gratifying close to Joe's saga is reached in follow-up finishing scenes. I recommend this book and the entire 'Joe Pitt' series to anyone interested in gritty/gory noir fiction featuring a 'tough guy' vampire and mafia-like NYC vampire clans.
