Overview

Vampires versus Zombies, round one . . .

Vampire detective Felix Gomez has seen a lot of weird things since becoming one of the undead—nymphomaniacs, aliens, and X-rated bloodsuckers, just to name a few—but now he comes face-to-face with the worst sort of undead.

To stop a ravenous army of zombies, Gomez must team up with a precocious teen with clairvoyant powers whose cooperation comes at a price: she won't help unless Felix makes her a vampire . . . if the zombies don't get her first.

Editorial Reviews

Tim Dorsey
“Acevedo has proven once again that he is a very disturbed man—and I mean that in the absolute finest sense of the term.”
Booklist (starred review)
“Acevedo’s vampire comedy provides plenty of chuckles, particularly in its exciting final wrap-up, which leaves an opening for further Felix adventures.”
Playboy
“The hero of this whodunit is an Iraqi Freedom soldier turned vampire turned gumshoe. The plot tests credulity here and there, but the snappy dialogue (pun intended), the pace and the porn stars (supernatural and otherwise) who populate the book more than compensate.”
El Paso Times
“Witty, fast-paced . . . manages to update vampire lore in clever and imaginative ways.”
Boulder Daily Camera
The Nymphos of Rocky Flats is a sassy, fast, fun read, and the mystery wraps up nicely.”
Rick Riordan
“Warning: The author of this book must be a vampire, because he had me hypnotized from page one. I defy anyone to read the first chapter of Acevedo’s The Nymphos of Rocky Flats and not fall under its spell. Vampire P.I. Felix Gomez is irresistibly entertaining.”
JA Konrath
“Deliciously unique. A smooth combination of Anne Rice and Michael Connelly, with a generous portion of Dave Barry. Loaded with thrills, sex, violence, and laughs, both mystery fanactics and horror lovers will find plenty to love with this page-turning debut. Acevedo is a writer to watch!”

Publishers Weekly

Felix Gomez, vampire PI, tackles his gritty fourth adventure (after 2008's The Undead Kama Sutra), a blend of hard-boiled noir and contemporary horror. This time around, Felix is sent by his bosses at the Araneum, a "worldwide network of vampires," to destroy a nest of zombies outside of Denver and put their creator out of business. On the zombies' trail, Felix meets Phaedra Nardoni, the 16-year-old responsible for his hallucinatory flashbacks to his days as a soldier in Iraq. Phaedra, who is dying of Huntington's chorea, threatens Felix with more hallucinations unless he turns her into a vampire. Felix's moral dilemma is cut short when the zombie reanimator captures him and explains his plans for world domination and "zombies in space." Fans of splattery Hollywood-style horror will have fun with this tale of violence and mayhem. (Mar.)

Jailbait Zombie (Felix Gomez Series #4) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 15 reviews.

His superiors at the worldwide vampiric association the Araneum send private investigator Felix Gomez to Denver. His assignment is two-fold. First the vampire is to destroy a zombie infestation in the Mile High City and suburbs like Aurora; and more important insure the maker is out of the reanimation business permanently.

Felix begins to follow the deadly Zombie path which leads him to teenage Phaedra Nardoni, who is dying from Huntington¿s chorea. The sixteen years old sends Felix on a hallucinatory spin back to his days as a grunt in Iraq. She threatens to keep piling on the illusionary flashbacks until she dies unless he converts her to an undead. Before he can decide what to do, the zombie creator abducts Felix.

The fourth Gomez urban fantasy (and Ricky Mountains) Noir (see X-RATED BLOODSUCKERS, THE NYMPHOS OF ROCKY FLATS and THE UNDEAD KAMA SUTRA) is as zany as the private investigator¿s previous cases. Besides dealing with zombies and their reanimator, Felix must cope with a brilliant, talented but dying teen that provides the ¿jailbait¿ aspects of the title. As always in this wacky but always entreating series filled with blood, gore and an over the top premise of the Rockies; this time even George Romero will take notice of controlling the world domination through zombies in space.

And I love Felix Gomez. Another book that amused and amazed me. I love the fresh take on vampire lore, and it doesn't get any fresher than Mario Acevedo, not to mention the what the...? when people see the book titles on my shelf!

If you like Acevedo's other books, then you'll like this one will. It follows the vampire detective (and self-described pu**y hound) Felix Gomez as he tracks down zombies... what could be more fun? Vapires, sex, and video-game style zombie destruction.

Yet again Mario Acevedo sucked me into one of his twisted plots full of odd humor and morbid scenes. He's got a very laid back way of writing that let me relate to someone that normaly I wouldn't relate too. The main character, Felix Gomez is a guy I automatically liked. He lives in a crazy world of vampires, zombies, aliens and somehow manages to keep his essence. With all the undead around, Acevedo manages to keep the book grounded and he lured me into another crazy adventure of a guy just trying to do what he's told and what seems right when almost every hurdle is thrown in his way. It's a good book and I'd suggest it. One of my favorite things about this book is how Acevedo can describe something so discusting you can almost smell it, and how he can capture a character so life like that I felt it was someone that could be living on the out skirts of my own town.

Mario Acevedo has a great and offbeat series which reminds me of the hedy days of Anita Blake by Laurell Hamilton before she turned into a Urber Slut. In the early novels,Blake was a fighter and a thinker and a troubled hottie. Then, she went slutty and then super slutty. Now, the books read like a Danielle Steel novel. Mario's fouth book is heading that way and his plot was spotty and his character development was off. He could be as good as Simon Greene or Jim Butcher. He just needs to work on his Villians as much as his Heroes. It was a good book and I devoured like his others. If you are looking for a Offbeat book then I recommend his series.
