I loved the authors unique take on a novel revolving around vampires. His characters were well developed, and the storyline well paced and easy to follow (inspite of the time jumps)
Looking forward to reading other things by this author

I loved a comment in another review that called this book "Dracula meets Ocean Eleven". Great writing, there were so many times I just wanted to grab someone and read aloud to them. The vampires and their mythology are refreshingly unique. Humor, horror and a heist what's not to love?

A horror-heist novel taking place in the 1960's, 1980's and 2010's. The star is Asmodeus Saxon Tang, a rare antiques collector who openly describes himself as an unapologetic coward. A clever, greedy old man whom despite his personality quirks is also extremely personable. The public knows him as a high society artifact procurer with an eye for rarity. The Church knows him as a crafty thief with a decades long career of finding vampires and obtaining their treasures. This book was difficult to put down, despite having a deliberately slow exposition and jumping through different time periods.
