Description


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.

Praise For…


“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
