Brandt is a down-and-out guitarist andvocalist who believes his life has hit rock bottom.  He can barely make the rent on his apartment, he drinks so much he can barely make it to the crappy gig that keeps his band afloat, let alone play when he gets there.  When he leaves the bar one dark night with a bottle of Jose Cuervo in one hand and his guitar case in the other, he finds he’s locked out of his apartment with no where to go.

As he stands alone in the dark and feeling sorry for himself, he hears a lone harmonica being played in the distance.  The sound is deep and powerful, and something in the music draws him away from his doorway and into an old alley where the homeless gather around garbage-can fires.

In that alley, Brandt meets the harmonica player, Wally, an old black man who can play the music that Brandt dreams of – the blues.  Not the blues as you hear them on the modern radio, but they way they were once played – filled with an extra “something” that can’t be taught.  Despite Wally’s warning, Brandt begs the old man to teach him the songs he is playing, and in the ensuing encounter, Brandt is gifted – or cursed – with new abilities.

He feels the pain building up around him and inside him.  Not his own pain, but the pain of others, the pain of those who have passed away, the pain of those who died with no one to hear their stories.  Wally explains it.  The music will release the pain, and it is the only thing that will release the pain.  Brandt must play, or the pain will build up inside until he destroys his own mind from the weight of it.  He becomes a conduit for the pain of the world, and then he is left alone.

Brandt plays one last concert with his band, and his performance draws them all, audience and musicians alike, into another world.  They witness a panoram of pain and horror, and Brandt plays it up and out of himself, then walks away from the bar and the band, leaving them to wonder what just happened.

What follows are a series of revelations, one for each member of the band, and one for a young girl named Liz, drawing them together, and ultimately reuniting them with Brandt.  Together, Brandt, Sinthia, Shaver, Dexter and Liz take off to the mountain town of Friendly California for a date with pain, destiny, and a silver haired Reverend who would like to see them dead.

In the final showdown, they must meet the challenge of the music, the pain, and their mingled histories and stand, or fall, with the pain of the world in the balance.

“From Publishers Weekly
The first in a series of paranormal vampire mysteries begins with the abduction of a sexpot vampire with “the smooth, flawless skin of a seventeen-year old,” and a dress that “rippled with every shift of her well-muscled form.” Several more impossible crimes follow, complete with near-endless descriptions of effortlessly subverted security hurdles. Detective DeChance is brought in by the vampires’ council of elders to find the perpetrator. Tall, dark and handsome, DeChance is also an accomplished wizard whose spells protect him from vampires, and his girlfriend (also tall and beautiful) is an expert in the magic of crystals. As the kidnapper taunts his victim with details of his plot (in a voice “empty of mirth but dripping with contempt”), the flat plot spins out predictably with mystical smoke and plenty of explosions, but little real craft.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
