This is the follow up book to Acevedo's The Nymphos of Rocky Flats: A Novel, which was his first foray into the genre of supernatural romance comedy. Like the first book, Felix Gomez, who was turned into a vampire during the first Iraq war, is once again the protagonist. This time, Felix is hired by a porn star to investigate the death of her friend, another porn star, who died under mysterious circumstances. The Areneum, a sort of vampire ruling council, also wants Felix to investigate this death, along with a few other things that may or may not be related. And so, Felix heads off to California where he teams up with a Mexican vampire who's sort of a cross between Carlos Castaneda and Cheech Martin. Felix ends up getting involved in multiple investigations as the woman who initially hired him is also killed. These investigations include a number of strange and seemingly unrelated events and circumstances including a land deal gone wrong, a movie deal, a religious deal, a bowling alley and a couple of Hollywood hit men.

From official release/information:

Book Description:

Now he faces his toughest task ever—navigating the corrupt world of Los Angeles politics to solve the murder of a distinguished young surgeon turned porn star. But both human and vampire alike have reasons to want the secret to stay buried. . .
