Eeergh! MIKE KENDALL's your standard-issue LA gumshoe, complete with a bottle in his holster, hired by a beautiful young heiress to investigate her father's mysterious disappearance.

But it turns out dear old dad is the latest victim of a vampire stalking the sunny climes of LaLaLand. Despite the bloodsucker twist, it's actually a rather run-of-the-mill story, and a bunch of P.I. cliches aren't enough to make it worth sinking your teeth into. The only original thing is Mike's 300-pound albino Eskimo assistant.

Now him, he should get his own story.
