More About Werewolf Smackdown by Mario Acevedo
Acevedo] is a very disturbed man and I mean that in the absolute finest sense of the term. Tim Dorsey, author of Nuclear JellyfishFelix Gomez, Latino vampire detective extraordinaire, tackles a sexy werewolf cabal in Werewolf Smackdown, the fifth installment in Mario Acevedo s satirical supernatural series. The author s wonderfully twisted blend of comedy, horror, and detective noir expertly flourished in such books as The Nymphos of Rocky Flat and Jailbait Zombie places him in the august company of Eric Anonymous Rex Garcia and Christopher Bloodsucking Fiends Moore, while earning him raves from coast to coast. The Baltimore Sun calls Acevedo s novels, decidedly good, unclean, unwholesome fun, while author and fan J.A. Konrath calls them, a smooth combination of Anne Rice and Michael Connelly, with a generous portion of Dave Barry. "

The fifth adventure of vampire PI Felix Gomez (following 2009's Jailbait Zombie) finds him caught between alpha werewolves battling for supremacy in sunny Charleston, S.C. When high-powered werewolf attorney Eric Bourbon tries to hire Gomez to kill his rival, Randolph Calhoun, Gomez refuses. The last thing he wants is to be the guy responsible for breaking the “uneasy truce” that exists among supernatural entities. But as soon as Gomez dodges that metaphorical bullet, someone tries to put a real one through him. Finding the answers will bring Gomez up against an estranged old lover and an old enemy, and just might get him killed. Characters include the usual roster of hoodlums and femmes fatales, who engage in a plethora of double-crosses and violent action scenes. Plenty of cliffhangers keep the story moving in this horror fan's perfect vacation read. (Mar.)
