Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn't all that impressive in a world where they've come out to mortals.
Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station's store. This gets him fangs - deep in a plot of vampire hunters, supernatural revolutionaries, and a millennium-old French knight determined to wipe out the supernatural.
Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to get out of the coffin.

Peter Stone is a vampire. A poor African American vampire who is shunned from New Detroit and has to work night shift in a convenience store to make ends meet. Stone discovers a freshly turned vampire in the women’s restroom and from there, his troubles are just beginning. There is a movement to destroy the old ones and a new vampire to step in and take over. Peter is smack dab in the middle.
Filled with witty references and comments from Blade, Blacula, Vampire in Brooklyn and other pop culture film references, CT Phipps tells the story of Peter Stone. Light and comedic, it flows well and captures the listener’s attention. It is not an edge of your seat type of story but it has its moments where the action was non-stop. I enjoyed the scene where Peter enters a sesame seed bun specialty store to investigate a lead but is compelled to count sesame seeds … hilarious!
The narrator, Cary Hite, added an almost Samuel L. Jackson voice to the main character which made it even more captivating! Hite was the pièce de résistance that made the book even more entertaining. The manner in which he voiced the prose was perfect! Together both Phipps and Hite made the book come to life for me.
If you enjoy pop culture references, vampires, and comedy – this is the book for you! It was fun, pure and simple.
