Laura Resnick is back with her fourth Esther Diamond mystery. The urban fantasy plot is strong and original, and has at its heart Esther's new off-Broadway gig in 'The Vampyre'. One of this series' strengths is its sense of place. Here 'The Big Apple' is back with some new locations mixed in with familar ones. The characters are likewise well-blended: with all the old favourites and some vibrant new ones. 'Vamparazzi' is a page-turner, pacy and interesting despite the somewhat predictable plot points. The story is dialogue-driven, with quick and witty repartee. Unlike 'Unsympathetic Magic', this is more Com than Rom, with a stagnant relationship between Esther and Lopez. If you're a fan of the series, or an urban fantasy fan who loves to laugh-out-loud, then buy this book.
