--Tim Dorsey, author of Nuclear Jellyfish
Felix 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."

Back cover copy
A sure-to-be-bloody civil war is brewing between rival werewolf factions, and P.I . Felix Gomez will do anything he can to make sure it doesn't explode into a vicious battle that engulfs all creatures, living and dead.
Between that, the sudden reappearance of an ex-girlfriend, and a gang of other vampires trying to take off his head, this is one rumble even a fanged detective extraordinaire may not be able to handle.
