Children are missing.
The police are stumped.
Halloween is coming, and an ancient evil is on the horizon.
The vampires are the good guys.

Soon, they've enlisted the help of a police detective, a priest, a witch, a fallen angel, and a strip club proprietor to save the world. This unlikely band of heroes battles zombies, witches, neuroses, and sunburn while cracking jokes and looking for the perfect bag of O-negative.

Urban Fantasy romp
This was a fun Urban Fantasy romp. It isn't a perfect read, but if you're looking for something easy to read and entertaining, then it is worth a look.
The biggest problem for me was the female characters, and some remarks about them that just felt juvenile and had me roll my eyes a bit, but it was in moderation, so I won't take a star for that. If that is hoewever something that botheres you, I would skip this one. If you, like me, sigh in exasperation for a moment and then just ignore it, you shall be fine.
What I liked about it is the main characters being rather out of the typical mold you're expecting of UF! They aren't bad ass good guys who just mow down enemies like it is nothing. Instead it's two rather mediocre guys who have been turned vampire, and now are hard to kill, but not always the wisest or best prepared... The tone was a bit too juvenile at times as I said, but it fit the characters and made for entertaining listening - even when it didn't make me laugh out loud I did smirk quite a bit along the way.
So definitely not a deep and thought provoking or literary work, but good to relax to after a long day and just let yourself be swept away without needing full focus.
