Desmond: A Novel of Love and the Modern Vampire by Ulysses G. Dietz

[Desmond]"Ever since Bram Stoker published Dracula in 1897, there's been a sexy aura surrounding vampire fiction--the vampire's central interaction with humans is, after all, incredibly intimate--and Anne Rice was one of the first modern writers to boldly push the genre out of the closet, beginning with Interview with the Vampire. But while Rice's vampire Lestat is a bad boy who sometimes tries to be good, the eponymous character in Ulysses G. Dietz's Desmond is a good boy who is always trying to be better, although his constant dependency upon the (mostly unoffered) kindness of strangers makes it difficult. Dietz's novel is set in present-day New York, but it also includes several trips into the past, as financial wizard and creature of the night Desmond Beckwith seeks to uncover the hidden secrets of his 250-year life even as he searches for true love with a mortal. Sharp writing and ingenious plotting make Desmond both scary and charming." (from Amazon.com)
