Vampire Mafia: Santa Cruz(2013)
(The first book in the Vampire Mafia series)
A novel by Jackson Stein
Mild mannered, UC Santa Cruz professor, John Stanic wakes up early one morning and walks out into the pre-dawn mist for an invigorating jog. But instead, he finds himself running for his life. Thrown together with the FBI's Tommy Valentine, Stanic is suddenly thrust into a seedy underworld he never could have imagined existed. An ancient text leads to the truth about the Santa Cruz mafia, and the blood thirsty creatures who have been attacking young women on the city's coastline. The supernatural collides with the gritty world of organized crime, and now it's up to Stanic's academic knowledge of the occult to save himself... and those he cares about the most.
