Mind you, they have pretty good reasons for this kind of behaviour, because the vampires they're dealing with aren't your basic two-neat-puncture-marks-on-the-neck style vamps, but the supercharged rip-men's-heads-off-and-tear-out-their-spines variety.

At least initially then, this seems to be a novel of blue collar blokes as vampire hunters. But it gets complicated.
These vampires really are Damned. They're irredeemably depraved, vicious and murderous a bit like Hannibal Lector on speed , and unfortunately, as it soon turns out, some of them have found out who Jack Crow is, and are now hunting him.
