Vampire PI Jack Fleming travels to Long Island to attend a funeral.
Problem: There's more than one body in the grave.
Delving into his past, Jack follows clues leading to an old murder, new betrayals, and a hard look at the man he was vs. the vampire he's become.
What's more dangerous than one vampire on a case?
Two--especially when they don't like each other!
Wise-cracking, street-savvy vampire gumshoe Jack Fleming teams up with the wickedly genteel Jonathan Barrett, Gentleman Vampire, who's found a body on his Long Island estate and has no idea what to do about it.
Clues take Jack back to his old stamping grounds in the newspaper world, only slightly hampered by Barrett, who has his own ideas on how to conduct a murder investigation.
Before you can say "machine gun" both are up to their fangs in mobsters, murder, and mayhem in this fast-paced mystery adventure set in post-Prohibition New York.
This novel is also available as a signed, numbered, limited-edition trade paperback exclusively from VampWriter Books.
The Devil You Know is a (nearly) direct sequel to book three of the Vampire Files, "Bloodcircle", and is full of spoilers for that novel. While this story can be read on its own, you will enjoy it more if you have read "Bloodcircle" first. You have been warned!

Wow. What a fun romp for vampire and mystery fans alike, especially those who enjoy stories set in the United State's post-prohibition period. The action moves right along as always with P.N. Elrod without the gore of some vampire books. Best of all to me, these vampires seem real as they do NOT twinkle in the sunlight! Vampire fans do need to be aware this is heavier in the mystery genre than in vampire lore. I was a bit worried about reading this one without first re-reading at least Book 3 of P.N. Elrod's Vampire Files series. My worries quickly eased. The author wove the needed information into the story in such a way my mind was refreshed as the action moved along. If I missed anything, it didn't make a difference in following and enjoying the story.
