Werewolf Smackdown (Paperback)
Felix Gomez, Latino vampire detective extraordinaire, tackles a dangerous werewolf cabal in the fifth installment in Mario Acevedo's satirical supernatural series
A sure-to-be-bloody civil war is brewing between rival werewolf factions, and P.I . Felix Gomez will do anything he can to make sure it doesn't explode into a vicious battle that engulfs all creatures, living and dead.
Between that, the sudden reappearance of an ex-girlfriend, and a gang of other vampires trying to take off his head, this is one rumble even a fanged detective extraordinaire may not be able to handle.
About the Author
Mario Acevedo is the bestselling author of The Nymphos of Rocky Flats, X-Rated Bloodsuckers, The Undead Kama Sutra, and Jailbait Zombie. He lives and writes in Denver, Colorado.
“Fans of splattery Hollywood-style horror will have fun with this tale of violence and mayhem.”
-Publishers Weekly on Jailbait Zombie
“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.”
-Playboy on Jailbait Zombie
“Decidedly good, unclean, unwholesome fun set in the thick of Denver’s mountainous spaces.”
-Baltimore Sun on Jailbait Zombie
“Raymond Chandler could never have imagined an L.A. like this, where hard-boiled, private-eye vampires fight crime, as well as commit a few during lunch breaks.”
-Booklist on X-Rated Bloodsuckers
“Acevedo has proven once again that he is a very disturbed man—and I mean that in the absolute finest sense of the term.”
-Tim Dorsey on X-Rated Bloodsuckers
“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 on The Nymphos of Rocky Flats
“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 on The Nymphos of Rocky Flats
“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 on Nymphos of Rocky Flats
