Still, this is all good fun even if I did want the upper crust hero to join the proletariat and start a socialist revolution. Heck, I'd settle for industrial reform and a national health service. Competently written with plenty going on and several young ladies aiming their low cut decolletage in the direction of our irresistible manly hero when the action briefly flags. Ideal for reading abroad when sitting in the shade of a beach umbrella with a chilled beer or an espresso (depending on taste) and pretending you're not watching attractive young women or men (depending on taste).
I'll stop this now before my fantasies carry me too far.
I read it quickly and, most of the time, it kept me hooked. The vampires are more science fictional (aren't bothered by garlic or religious icons) than supernatural (can't turn into bats, etc). The prose flows but isn't remotely inspired or evocative. The characters are moderately interesting. And there's nothing remotely original about it. It's just another competent supernatural (except it's more sf) thriller. If this is the sort of thing you like, you'll like it, though you'll probably forget all about it in minutes.

As for those reviewers who have criticised this album for daring to include the odd bit of electric guitar, I can only conclude that their taste in music is so narrow that they are in danger of vanishing up their own fundament. There's nothing wrong at all with this album except that it underachieves and doesn't come close to being the best that this truly remarkable singer is capable of. That said, I'm still playing it an awful lot.
