Overview

Nick Whittier, having been alive for six centuries, has had plenty of time to master three professions. In a typical week he works as a police officer, lawyer and doctor and still finds time to murder someone and drink their blood. He used to feel guilty about the killings, but now he restricts himself to only eating the worst members of society. Few people in Starside, Illinois seem to care about the untimely deaths of spam e-mailers, pushy Jehovah Witnesses and politicians. However, the barriers between Nick's three secret lives start to crumble when a mysterious man from his past arrives in town seeking revenge. Nick must move quickly to prevent the three women in his life, and the authorities who are hunting him, from discovering his terrible secret.

Dark Moonlighting is the first book in the humorous series. It explores four of the biggest clichés in popular culture, and it pokes fun at a number of popular television shows including Law & Order, Bones and House. It also takes a more realistic and amusing approach to the vampire cliché. For example, the average human has the equivalent of five Big Gulps worth of blood in their body. Nick takes twenty minutes to kill someone and, like the vampire bat, must immediately urinate afterwards.

Meet the Author

Scott was born in the wagon of a traveling show. His Momma used to dance for the money they'd throw. Pappa would do whatever he could... Well, not really. That would have been a lot more interesting though. He was actually born in the suburbs of Cleveland.

After existing for several more decades, Scott graduated from college in 2004 with a degree in history and political science. Six months later he decided he wanted to be a writer, which made the degree largely worthless. Oops.

Scott has written many novels in genres ranging from science fiction to political satire. He tried combining the two genres once, but he didn't think anyone would be interested in a sex scandal involving the President of Blargon 7.

When not writing, he enjoys being asleep.

    Nick Wittier has recently taken up residence in the central Illinois town of Starside. He is a research doctor at the local hospital and is on the verge of making a stunning medical breakthrough that will bring an end to a deadly scourge. Nick Whittier is also an accomplished lawyer, a well-respected police officer, and a 671-year-old vampire.   

    Drawn by the relative obscurity of the town, Nick knows Starside is small enough to eschew the hustle of big city life, yet large enough for him to safely keep his three careers separate. He sets up his law practice, walks a third shift beat on the police force with his partner Jasmine Johnson, works diligently on his virus research, and occasionally kills and feeds on a local. Through his research, he discovers that the curse which has afflicted him for over six centuries is caused by a virus, and he has come close to formulating a vaccine and a cure for it. Yet before he can make that final breakthrough, his research is derailed by a number of occurrences that threaten to endanger the entire town. Nick must reveal his true identity to those closest to him and enlist their help.

    Deftly crafted and packed with action, gore, and just the right amount of laughs, Dark Moonlighting is an exceptional read due to the author’s treatment of the overall subject matter. Nowadays, the key to getting valid mileage out of the well-worn vampire mythology is to rewrite or readdress the myths themselves. Treating vampirism as a virus-induced condition is innovative, and allows Haworth’s distillation of the myths to be a predominantly physiological one. The book offers just the right amount of blood, seductiveness, and self-effacing angst, but the retooling of the mythology will definitely appeal to the more erudite and demanding vampire aficionados.

    Fun book to read-loved it!

    This is such a great vampire story. I think even guys who knock this genre would enjoy it. It was very funny and worth every cent spent! (or would have been if I had actually paid for it.) I feel certain the ones I buy will also be worth it.

    I like it a lot. 
    The way that it's written, full of innuendos and satire, making fun of "modern" things and building (yet) another vampire image (other than the perfection of Edward Cullen). I found it an enjoyable reading, with a dark sense of humor and subtle critics that makes it impossible not to laugh.
