It’s enough to give someone a headache
Let’s compare and contrast:
In one corner, there is Charlie Huston’s vampire noir novel ALREADY DEAD, just out now from Del Rey (an imprint of Random House) and starring a private investigator named Joe Pitt.
In the other, there is Thomas Perry’s first novel in more than three years, NIGHTLIFE, to be published in March by Random House (which, actually, is also an imprint of Random House) and features a private investigator named Joe Pitt.
So far, there hasn’t been any blood-drinking or garlic in the Perry novel, but things do change from the ARC to the finished edition…
