The Fixer - Jon F. Merz

Not the fast bowler, not the author, no, this Lawson is a vampire assassin. A vampire ninja assassin.

With two cats.

The Fixer in the title is his profession. Vampires are a separate species that can procreate - and he is tasked with maintaining the Balance in their society, one of many.

So this is sort of what you get if you crossed Robert Ludlum with Vampirella - as his arch-enemy Cosgrove, the man he has been assigned to kill and that slaughtered his young love in psychopathic serial killer fashion just wants to raise a vampire Elder demon.

Complicating matters is a hot ex-KGB assassin and fiance of Simbik, Lawson's dead partner. So they both really want to kill Cosgrove as well do the horizontal interspecies ninjutsu.

Fun stuff.
