HALF THE BLOOD OF BROOKLYN by Charlie Huston (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“[Huston is] one of the most remarkable prose stylists to emerge from the noir tradition in this century.” (Stephen King)
When the Vyrus-infected dregs of New York’s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges, the Vampyre Clans want to know why. Manhattan’s vampire ecosystem is fragile, with too many bloodsuckers feeding on the same supply. So undead strong-arm Joe Pitt heads to the boroughs to keep an Orthodox danger at bay.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator, Scott Brick. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“The further, even gorier adventures of Joe Pitt, Vampyre extraordinaire….fans will find this installment the best to date.” (Kirkus Reviews)

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy the Joe Pitt series, or who like Urban Vampire stories.
When the Vyrus-infected dregs of New York’s outer boroughs start creeping across the bridges and through the tunnels, the Vampyre Clans want to know why. Bad luck for PI Joe Pitt. Joe used to be a Rogue, worked off his own dime, picked his own gigs, but tight times and a terminally ill girlfriend pushed him into the arms of the renegade Society Clan. Now he has all the cash and blood he needs, but at a steep price. The price tonight is crossing the bridge, rolling to Coney Island, finding the Freak Clan, and figuring out what’s driving that bunch of savages to scratch at the Society Clan’s door.
