Unnatural Acts (Dan Shamble #2) (Hardcover)
"Wickedly funny, deviously twisted and enormously satisfying. This is a big juicy bite of zombie goodness. Two decaying thumbs up."-Jonathan Maberry
To be dead, or not to be dead...
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 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...
