New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live. And die. Joey Peacock has spent the last 40 years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting his routine: feeding by night and sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city's sidewalks. Until one night he sees them hunting on his beloved subway. Vampires, like him. or t like him. Whatever they are, whatever their appearance means, the undead in the tunnels of Manhattan are t as safe as they once were. And neither are the rest of us.
