“[Charlie Huston’s] action scenes are unparalleled in crime fiction and his dialogue is so hip and dead-on that Elmore Leonard should be getting nervous.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Half the Blood of Brooklyn It’s like this: a series of bullet-riddled bad breaks has seen rogue Vampyre and terminal tough guy Joe Pitt go from PI for hire to Clan-connected enforcer to dead man walking in a New York minute. And after burning all his bridges, the only one left to cross leads to the Bronx, where Joe’s brass knuckles and straight razor can’t keep him from running afoul of a sadistic old bloodsucker with a bad bark and a worse bite. Even if every Clan in Manhattan is hollering for Joe’s head on a stick, it’s got to be better than trying to survive in the outer-borough wilderness. So it’s a no-brainer when Clan boss Dexter Predo comes looking to make a deal. All Joe has to do to win back breathing privileges on his old turf is infiltrate an upstart Clan whose plan to cure the Vyrus could expose the secret Vampyre world to mortal eyes and set off a panic-driven massacre. Not cool. But Joe’s all over it. To save the Undead future, he just has to wade neck-deep through all the archenemies, former friends, and assorted heavy hitters he’s crossed in the past. No sweat? Maybe not, but definitely more blood than he’s ever seen or hungered for. And maybe even some tears–over the horror and heartbreaking truth about the evil men do no matter who or what they are. Praise for Charlie Huston and his Joe Pitt novels “In conceiving his world (a New York City divided by vampire clans, each with different reasons to hate Pitt), Huston gives a fading genre a fresh afterlife. [Grade:] A.” –Entertainment Weekly “[Huston] creates a world that is at once supernatural and totally familiar, imaginative, and utterly convincing.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer(less)

A book by Charlie Houston

Charlie Huston American writer. Born in Oakland, California. He currently lives in New York. Houston works in the genres of noir detective and crime novel. He appeared on the literary horizon in 2005. He began with a detective-crime cycle about the cute anti-hero Hank Thompson, "who makes his way through a false identity, his past and a new life for himself." The series has now evolved into a trilogy of the novels Caught Stealing (2004), Six Bad Things (2005) and A Dangerous Man (2006). The author says that the creation of this trilogy was influenced by the books of Charles Bukowski, James Elroy and Cormac McCarthy. Charlie Houston managed to sell the film rights to Caught Stealing to Crossroads Films before the publisher signed a contract with him to publish the novel. The second cycle of Houston, which tells about the private investigator-vampire Joe Pitt, already combines mysticism and detective story. According to the author, the Joe Pitt cycle is almost a deliberate imitation of Chandler`s style. Currently, this cycle consists of the novels "Deadly" (2005), "No Dominion" (2006), "Half the Blood of Brooklyn" (2007) and "Every Last Drop" (2008). Charlie Houston also published the off-cycle crime novel "The Shotgun Rule" (2007). It is "the story of a gang of teenagers who broke into a California suburb in the 1980s where they shouldn`t have and stole what was best left alone." In January 2009, the writer is to publish another off-cycle novel "The Mystic Arts of Erasing all Signs of Death". This is the story of a beginner eliminator of traces of incidents and crimes. Two stories by Houston, united by the same heroines, were published as part of the anthologies A Hell of a Woman (2007) and Expletive Deleted (2007). In addition, Houston is the author of about a dozen Moon Knight issues published by Marvel Comics in 2006-2007. Currently, Charlie Houston has already retired from this project, but continues to provide advice on the plot of the series.  Science fiction laboratory , official site .
