Bloodshot (Cheshire Red Reports Series #1)

Bloodshot - Cherie Priest This was a really fun read. Raylene is a vampire turned in the 1920s (her father was a PI who might have been the inspiration for Sam Spade). She's a thief, loves a good mystery, claims to be a loner (but "kind of" keeps an eye on 2 homeless kids who squat in her loot storage), and has more than a few neurotic tendencies. After all, you might be paranoid, but that doesn't mean somebody isn't after you.Her most recent client brings her under the radar of government spooks and opens up a conspiracy involving tests on vampires and other supernaturals. Along the way, she kicks some ass and picks up a special ops trained drag queen (with his own reasons to get involved). It was easy to get into and kept my attention, and I really liked all of the characters. All in all a very fun ride. Still lots of unresolved issues, but a very good start to the series.
