“Vampires, zombies, things without a name. From the back-alleyways of London’s East End to the Hollywood Hills. One Second to Midnight is the first in a series of adventures about a monster-hunting cockney James Bond, blazing a blood-spattered trail of revenge, that takes him from Los Angeles to New York, from Stonehenge to Vlad the Impaler’s Transylvanian castle."
This is not a comic book character, he doesn’t have any super powers, and this is definitely not a “Twilight type” paranormal romance. Think ex British special forces soldier, hunting down the “monsters” that killed his family. I’m looking for photographic type imagery not comic- book type graphics.
The books central character, Vincent, is in his mid 30s , tall, clean shaven, with dark hair (in good shape but not overly muscular) He has, dark eyes and has his hair combed like an early Elvis Presley. Has slight sideburns, wears jeans, motorcycle boots, black leather motorcycle jacket. Often wears sunglasses, even at night, (due to their infra-red capabilities). He always wears a red T-Shirt with a black clock logo on it (the outline of a clock with the hands set at a fraction before midnight) The same symbol is also on the hood of his car (a black 57 Chevy Bel-Air with flames painted along the side) The clock symbol is also on his gun, axe, and all other weaponry.
Important note: I don’t want Vincent’s face to be prominent, so the readers can imagine how he looks based on the description in the book not the picture on the cover. Either he could be depicted in shadow, or wearing sunglasses, or sunglasses and a partial face gas mask, or hidden behind a weapon, at night, in silhouette etc. If you happen to show his left wrist, he always wears 2 wrist watches, one set at regular time, another with the hands permanently set at a fraction before midnight.
