MAKE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD... As always in a Vampyres of Hollywood mystery, the biting wit is sharper than a nip from a passing vampyre -- in a word, humor, wit, and satire are what this engaging series is really all about. You're going to get a good mystery every time, with lots of action, suspense, and adventure, but the best part is the clever and witty writing. Nobody's better than Barbeau at skewering the foibles of Hollywood and its self-involved denizens, and nobody's got a smarter mouth than her movie star heroine, vampyre--Please! Never merely "vampire"--Ovsanna Moore, this time in New Orleans for a horror convention. (Fasten your seat belts -- lots of fun to be had at the expense of horror conventions!)
Traveling with Ovsanna is her human true love, hot LAPD Detective Peter King, Peter's snake-dancing neighbor Susie Q, and the detective's memorabilia-selling mom. But unbeknownst to the quartet, someone else is with them -- someone from the past who can be extremely dangerous. It all gets off to a rollicking start when some poor fool dressed as Buffy the Vampire (sic) Killer has the temerity to take on an ACTUAL vampyre -- i.e. the glamorous Ovsanna Moore. From there we go to Snakes At the Con, hoodoo practitioners, bayou hilarity, and a nail-biting battle-of-the titans ending.
For all mystery readers who love humor -- because if you think you don't like vampyre books, you haven't met a woman sleuth like Ovsanna Moore. Don't think "vampyre", think the fulfillment of your fondest fantasy -- a woman who wins every fight; who (being 450 years old) can say exactly what she wants with no guilt and no regrets; and who, even at the advanced age of 450, is sexy as a 20-year-old and still up for hot romance.
Part comic mystery, part police procedural, a little bit supernatural, paranormal, and cccult (with a dash of old-fashioned vampyre romance), MAKE ME DEAD is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud -- more than once.
