 In a city overrun with the undead, an ex-cop is given a chance to get revenge...
Detective Danny Mancini is on a case, following a murder suspect. When he catches him, he finds out that the perp isn't even human: he's a 200 year old rogue vampire!

The department doesn't believe him, and puts him on early retirement, despite his many years of service to the Chicago Police Department, which sends him into a downward spiral.

Two years later, Danny gets an invitation from the beautiful, young and very attractive Detective Angelica Cross to join a secret branch of the FBI to help her track down Vincent, the wayward vamp.

But renegade werewolves, meddling immortal witches and Danny's strange visions of a life lived a century ago with Angelica make things more difficult than it should be
Stake Out by Lily Luchesi (Paranormal Detectives, #1)

Stake-OutHow about a great mystery thriller that walks on the dark side of the street? What if that mystery contains vampires, too? I agree, sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? When a veteran detective claims to have fought off a murder suspect who later escaped, well, that is part of the job. When Danny Mancini says the perp is a vampire, the department decided it was time to put Mancini out to pasture. Broken, depressed and often three sheets to the wind, he has spent the last two years feeling lost, useless and at odds with life.

Then came the knock at the door by a beautiful young detective who asks Danny to join a secret government agency to track down, you guessed it, a vampire named Vincent. It seems Danny is about to learn about everything that goes bump in the night, firsthand and he would like nothing better than to find the vampire that cost him his job and his inner identity.

Of course things are never that simple and when romance begins to bloom, Danny must choose between his hatred for all things paranormal and Angelica, the woman he is drawn to like metal to a magnet.

Welcome to STAKE OUT by Lily Luchesi! Where a hard-boiled detective faces blood sucking vampires head on while discovering that not all vampires are created equal. Ms. Luchesi has done a marvelous job of blending genres, creating characters filled with dimension and personality, while adding a bit of mystery that runs deeper than just the present day events! Forget the perfect hero type, Danny is flawed, sometimes very narrow-minded and certainly a bit aggravating, but Angelica make up for all that just by putting up with his flawed ways! Perfect start to what looks to be a fabulous series!

I received this copy from Lily Luchesi in exchange for my honest review.
