plenty of dead bodies and violence

Campy horror & humor
I liked Rick Murcer's writing style. His work is packed with similes that are often a humorous relief from the horror. I don't know if he intended for me to laugh so much amid the mystery and bloodshed but I did. Many references to the previous book made me want to read it and see if it was the same. My favorite line: "He cradled Louise in his arms, putting his hand on the hole in her chest, trying to stem the flow that wouldn't take STOP for an answer." The first time I heard it I laughed out loud. The second time I thought it was brilliant.
I didn't really have a favorite character. I appreciated that the characters, except for the evil Dr. Argyle, were not two dimensional. I liked the way Manny Williams and his partner Sophie Lee bantered back and forth. It will be interesting to find out what happens to Dr. Argyle when the series ends.
DJ Holte brings sparkle and color to the story. He gives all the characters a distinctive voice, even the women. His rendition of the villainous Dr. Fredrick Argyle is a nasty maniacal voice that will give you the creeps.
No, there was too much graphic violence for that.
Horror isn't my favorite genre but when DJ Holte offered Deceitful Moon to me for an honest review, I jumped at the chance to hear one of my favorite narrators again.
