Since hunting down the monster who took the lives of
his wife and children five years ago
, occult
bounty
-hunter Deacon Chalk has lived by only one rule.

He does not work for the monsters. He kills them.

So why would a vampire try to hire him as protection
against another monster hunter? After enforcing his
only rule Deacon goes to meet the target
, a vampire
slayer named Nyteblade. Professional courtesy
demands he tell this Nyteblade the vampires are hiring
people to kill him. Deacon finds the vampire slayer
waiting in an alley.

Waiting to stake
him.

He discovers that Nyteblade is a bumbling
, fumbling,
wanna

Someone who needs saving from monsters instead of
the other way around. This is proven when a horde of
vampires descend and he has to escape while trying to
keep Nyteblade alive.

Someone has set Deacon up. Someone wants him
dead.

Someone should have sent more vampires.

Bound and determined
, Deacon will find out who tried
to kill him no matter how many bloodsuckers
,
were-spiders, cursed immortals, undead strippers, or
insanely powerful hell
-bitches he has to wade through.

It
's going to be a long night.
Kicking Monster ass
EVERYWHERE
"A dark, damaged, lonely man takes on the undead underworld and the
monsters who live in it. Deacon Chalk kicks monster ass!"
Faith Hunter –NY Times bestselling author of the Jane Yellowrock series and the
Rogue Mage series

"Tuck's Deacon Chalk is one bad-ass vampire killer with an arsenal to rival a
small nation's and an unlikely posse--a priest, an Immortal and a lycanthrope.
Blood and Bullets will keep you on the edge of your seat page after page. I loved
it."
Jeanne C. Stein - author of the Anna Strong Chronicles

"BLOOD AND BULLETS certainly lives up to its name. Sort of a cross between
Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn, James R. Tuck's debut novel delivers a fast-
paced, action-filled story that kicks off his new series with a bang. Literally. This
is not your daughter's vampire book! There are no brooding, star-crossed lovers
(sparkly or otherwise), no sexy vampires searching for their soul mates. Tuck
gets back to basics in a world where monsters are evil and someone has to kill
them. Enter the hero: a tattooed and tortured gun-slinging, vampire-slaying bad
ass. If Dirty Harry and Anita Blake had a love child, he would be Deacon Chalk.
I was hooked from the beginning to the end! Ladies, if Dark Urban Fantasy is
not your cup of tea, then buy it for the man in your life. It's an action movie in
print and the guys will love it!"
Jenna Maclaine- Author of the Cin Craven series

"BLOOD AND BULLETS is bursting at the seams with picture-painting language
and satisfying surprises. Deacon Chalk is so vividly drawn you can almost reach
out and stroke his goatee. Rapid fire action never stops, and Deacon's
irresistible voice propels you along for the ride. When I finished this book I was
out of breath!"
Annabel Joseph- Bestselling author of Club Mephisto and many other fine titles.

"Blood & Bullets is a straight-up meat ‘n potatoes testosterone ass-kicker that
delivers you thrills, chills, and kills with a rock-steady hand, unblinking eye, and
no mercy for the things that go bump in the night. If you’re hungry for
supernatural adventure free of trembling romance or are SICK of sad vampires,
mainline this book RIGHT NOW – Deacon Chalk is the Charles Bronson of
urban fantasy, guaranteed 100% BS-free.
Relentless, vicious, and yet with a core of genuine humanity the monsters can’t
touch – Deacon’s a man pushed to the edge by the forces of darkness, and
instead of falling in, he’s chosen to PUSH BACK in spectacular fashion.
If you’ve got a vampire bothering your daughter, call in Mr. Chalk – within
fifteen minutes, you’ll be sweeping the vampire out the door with a broom."
Matt R. Jones- Author of the Hollywood Vampires series.

"Excellent book, fast pace, brutal, a roller coaster adrenaline ride and you don't
even have to get off the sofa to experience it. Deacon Chalk is who the monsters
are afraid of!"
Adrienne Wilder - Author of the City Of Dragons series and the Darwin's Theory
series
