Product Description

Product Description

Nick Whittier, having been alive for six centuries, has had plenty of time to master three professions. In a typical week he works as a police officer, lawyer and doctor and still finds time to murder someone and drink their blood. He used to feel guilty about the killings, but now he restricts himself to only eating the worst members of society. Few people in Starside, Illinois seem to care about the untimely deaths of spam e-mailers, pushy Jehovah Witnesses and politicians. However, the barriers between Nick's three secret lives start to crumble when a mysterious man from his past arrives in town seeking revenge. Nick must move quickly to prevent the three women in his life, and the authorities who are hunting him, from discovering his terrible secret.

Dark Moonlighting is the first book in the humorous series. It explores four of the biggest clichés in popular culture, and it pokes fun at a number of popular television shows including Law & Order, Bones and House. It also takes a more realistic and amusing approach to the vampire cliché. For example, the average human has the equivalent of five Big Gulps worth of blood in their body. Nick takes twenty minutes to kill someone and, like the vampire bat, must immediately urinate afterwards.

The Dark Moonlighting Series:

Dark Moonlighting
Dark Moonlighting 2: Kruse Control
Dark Moonlighting 3: Live Free or Dark Moonlighting Hard
Dark Moonlighting 4: The One with the Whales
Dark Moonlighting 5: Electric Dark Moonlightingaloo

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! 17 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a brilliant book - an assuredly written blend of mystery, fantasy, romance, struggle, and above all, humour running throughout like a vein of gold.

The characters were great, and I found myself identifying and enjoying the suborned sterotypes, the offspring of Mr Haworth's twisted imagination and the cliched characters we all know and love. The plot keeps you guessing and I was just happy to be along for the ride by the end.

I don't normally write longer than the minimum 20 word reviews, but I'm driven to it by this gem. Thank you Mr Haworth.

Especially if your palate is a little jaded at the moment, buy this book, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average vampire fare 31 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Definitely not twilight-esque or a paranormal romance written for teens, and for me, that's a good thing. Our 600 plus year old vampire isn't handsome, he's not even very likable, but his exploits as a blood sucking killer who holds down three jobs are entertaining and like other reviewers have said, funny. You can't hate a guy who figures it's more moral to choose his prey from 'bad' people like email spammers and Jehovah Witnesses!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun 1 July 2013
By Angie T.D. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this book, I loved the humour and the fact it was so different to the usual vampire books, I like them too but its great to read some thing in the genre that is so original.One word of advice, don't read this book in public, you will find yourself laughing out loud at some some things so you might get some strange looks! I really liked the main character,and some of the others, really good fun and I liked the writing style,it was a winner for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 1 Jun 2013
By Jay
Format:Kindle Edition
Certainly not your usual vampire story, much better really. A six hundred year old vampire with a wicked sense of humour on death row for the one murder he didn`t actually commit. Not revealing any spoilers otherwise. Definately worth reading for all paranormal lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biting satire (sorry) 9 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wasn't expecting much going into this but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I finished it in one sitting. It's a highly funny take on the vampire genre and well worth reading. I'm off now to get the rest of the books in this series.

Such a good book! A different spin on the "usual" vampire books. Funny, witty and incredibly entertaining. Got this book as a kindle freebie and have now bought, and started, the following 2 books! A great read :)

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 28 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Dark Moonlighting is a bit hard to review. It's satire and as satire it's quite funny. If I hadn't known going in that it was meant to be sarcastic, I'd probably be accusing the author of having the sense of humour of a 5th grader, but as purposeful humour it's pretty good. I'd recommend the book for anyone who's familiar with or has a love for TV cop and medical dramas.

The problem is that the joke got old at about half way through the book. At about that point, two things happened roughly simultaneously. One, the jokes (for lack of a better word) became predictable and thus lost their lustre, and two, the satire went from being relatively subtle to openly interacting with/through the characters and story. This made the whole thing feel slapstick and clumsy instead of cleaver and satirical (even when some of this same clumsiness was, in itself, a satire). Dr. Condo and the FBI agents were especially heavy-handed and groan-inducing.

The writing is pretty good. I found it to be well edited. I enjoyed the autobiographical nature of the story and especially liked the ending. All and all, an enjoyable enough book, even if I preferred the first half to the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 20 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr Haworth, you have a touch of the Christopher Moore about your writing. Excellent story, very well crafted, professionally delivered with a great plot line. It is difficult to put an original spin on the vampire genre but this book manages it superbly with a new angle on the myth and fleshed out with some laugh out loud moments and a wicked streak of humour throughout. A great read.
