Publisher's Summary

In the Unnatural Quarter, golems slave away in sweatshops, necromancers sell black-market trinkets to tourists, and the dead rise up - to work the night shift. But zombie detective Dan Shamble is no ordinary working stiff. When a local senator and his goons picket a ghostly production of Shakespeare in the Dark - condemning the troupe’s “unnatural” lifestyles - Dan smells something rotten. And if something smells rotten to a zombie, you’re in serious trouble…
Before his way of life, er, death, is destroyed, Dan wants answers. Along the way he needs to provide security for a mummified madame, defend a mixed-race couple (he’s a vampire, she’s a werewolf) from housing discrimination, and save his favorite watering hole, the Goblin Tavern, from drying up. Throw in a hairy hit man, a necro-maniac, and a bank robber who walks through walls, and Dan Shamble’s plate is full. Maybe this time, the zombie detective has bitten off more than he can chew…

It was okay.

Too much going on in the story. I wish the author would have cut a few elements in the story to focus on others to make things a bit more interesting. It is very creative and I love the world this book takes place in.

Pleasant but boring

I moderately enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one, just dull. A zombie cozy, I guess.The redemption comes in the bad jokes and puns., and the pig.
