When vampires tangle with the Philadelphia mafia, one thing is certain - all hell is going to break loose.

Alexei chose the wrong neighborhood to claim his latest victim, a member of Enzo Salerno's crime syndicate. Now Philadelphia mob boss Enzo Salerno is determined to hunt down the man who killed his associate in such gruesome fashion in his South Philly row home and serve his own brand of old fashioned Italian style vengeance.

Perplexed by this unnatural murder, Salerno uncovers clues that lead him to believe that this was not a mob hit, and that a vampire was responsible for this death. Magnus, the leader of Alexei's brood, must use all of his resources to save them from both the mafia and the FBI, sparking a bloody war that plays out in the streets of Philadelphia.

Who will survive on Blood Street?

Praise for Blood Street

"Blood Street is an engaging and enjoyable tour de force! Part crime thriller, part vampires-gone-wild, Alves has written a novel firmly seated at the epicenter of current genre fiction.  Highly recommended!"

--Ronald Malfi, author of Floating Staircase

"Alves' action-packed Blood Street points the vampire genre back in the right direction. Vampires are ruthless monsters bent on superiority, power and the inevitable, near-tragic craving of blood, but here mixed in the frenzy we also have organized crime, which turns out to be quite similar in its aspirations."

-- Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Black & Orange
