Louis I: The Slattern Slashers


To the world, Louis Fontaine is a washed-up old drunk. Maybe he is. But the world-weary private eye is more than that, too. He’s also a vampire hunter and independent ghoul, centuries old, with secrets that many would do worse than kill for, and a conscience that will never let him rest.

When two long-vanished murderers resurface and girls in the Ninth Ward start turning up dead, Lou may be the only man who can stop them—or cares enough to.

Louis II: The Hunt for René


If you’re in trouble, there’s no better man to turn to than Louis Fontaine, private eye. But when an abandoned fledgling approaches Lou for help tracking down her sire, Lou may be the one in trouble next. The case smells rotten from the outset. Unfortunately, he’s never been one to turn down a lady in trouble… even if she’s already dead.

Even Lou, though, isn’t prepared for the atomic bomb secret that lies at the heart of this case. It could explode the entire city… if he can survive long enough to use it.

GM’s Note: Louis II consists entirely of crossovers with Caroline II, which tells a longer story from Lou’s and Caroline’s points of view. Louis II tells a shorter story from Lou’s sole point of view.

Louis III: The Long Goodbye


Growing old is the hardest thing you can do, if you ask Louis Fontaine. He’s grown older than any man has a right to. He’s ready to say goodbye.

But the grizzled private eye has no intention of going quietly into the night. His last hunt may well be his most difficult ever. His quarry? Donovan, sheriff of New Orleans, and one of the most dreaded vampires in the city. Lou will be tested like never before. If he succeeds, the city will never be the same.

Maybe, at last, he can retire… and pass the torch to another generation.
