Felix Gomez went to Iraq as a soldier, fighting against the evils of terrorism to keep his country safe. He returned a vampire, ashamed of his actions during the war and of the innocent deaths he had caused.

He has returned to a life in the States as a private detective. Contacted by a good friend working at the Rocky Flats Weapons Facility, he is hired to find the cause of the mysterious "illness" that is affecting the women of the plant to become nymphomaniacs.

During the course of his investigation, Felix is confronted by women with sex on their minds, integrating into the local vampire community, shadowy government agents, and the mysterious vanatori- Vampire Hunters from Eastern Europe who are preying on the local vampires. Is the cause a virus? Has the nymphomania been caused by a radiation exposure? or is there a more extraterrestrial cause?Felix vows he is going to find the cause of the Nymphomania or die trying, a promise which almost becomes true.

Author Mario Acevedo has created a world where vampires are not an uncommon occurrence. They have local communities (at least in this Colorado setting), can eat human food as long as there is blood covering it (human or animal). His story is humorous with very adult humor. I found myself drawn into the plot, and giggling at events several times while reading. This book reminded me very much of Christopher Moore's vampire books. While I wasn't exactly enamored with the alien plot worked into the story it wasn't distracting or overly silly. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
