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.
Fans of splattery Hollywood-style horror will have fun with this tale of violence and mayhem.
“Acevedo has proven once again that he is a very disturbed man—and I mean that in the absolute finest sense of the term.”
“Acevedo’s vampire comedy provides plenty of chuckles, particularly in its exciting final wrap-up, which leaves an opening for further Felix adventures.”
-Booklist (starred review)
“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.”
“The Nymphos of Rocky Flats is a witty, fast-paced, detective tale that also manages to update vampire lore in clever and imaginative ways.”
-El Paso Times
“The Nymphos of Rocky Flats is a sassy, fast, fun read, and the mystery wraps up nicely.”
-Boulder Daily Camera
“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.”
-Rick Riordan, Edgar Award winning author of Mission Road
“Witty, fast-paced . . . manages to update vampire lore in clever and imaginative ways.”
-El Paso Times
“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!”
-JA Konrath, author of Bloody Mary
