This book was written and evolved into the tv show Moonlight before it was published. It's a much darker and edgier Mick then we saw in the tv show. Every time I picked up this book I could not put it down. It took two of my favorites, vampires and mysteries, and combined them into one very riveting and easy to read book. It kept my interest from start to finish. As much as I loved the tv show, I really wish it would have been more like this book, darker and grittier with an even more flawed Mick. As evidenced by all the vampire shows on now, people were ready for that. I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who loves vampires and a good mystery. Plus since we already have Alex O'Loughlin's image as Mick from the tv show, it is visually pleasing as well.
