Description

The sight of the blood covered fangs exploded from her deep memory like a ballthrough a plate glass window. The man had bitten Bobby, torn into him like a barbequed rib on the Fourth of July.

Vampires. Vam-pires. Real live--er, dead (undead?)--bloodsucking vampires, living in the City of Angels. Madison Rose, a street-smart twenty-something waitress would never have believed it--until a vampire thwarts a vicious attack against her by appearing in the nick of time and finishing off her assailant in one tasty bite.

Madison has been saved by the vampires--or has she? She learns that women have been going missing; their lifeless bodies turning up drained of blood. Now the murderer is after her. As the violence escalates, Madison, LAPD Detective Notchey, and a cadre of alluring and dangerous vampires search for the true killer--while Madison keeps a wary eye on the skittish and thirsty vampires. Will she survive to see the light of day? ***

"Like Stuart Kaminsky, Jaffarian juggles her franchises deftly, giving each a unique voice and appeal. Her latest series kickoff may be her best yet, blending supernatural sexy with down-to-earth sassy."--Kirkus Reviews

"Though Madison is no Sookie Stackhouse, she's definitely a keeper."--Publishers Weekly

"It will no doubt appeal to many paranormal mystery fans. . . Murder in Vein] is recommended for its likable characters and intriguing plot."--Library Journal
