First review of Dan Shamble, Zombie PI: UNNATURAL ACTS

Library Journal just posted their review of UNNATURAL ACTS, the second novel featuring Dan Shamble, Zombie PI.

Anderson, Kevin J. Unnatural Acts. Kensington. (Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I.  Bk. 2). Jan. 2013. c.325p. ISBN 9780758277367. pap. $15. FANTASY

Zombie PI Dan Chambeaux (or Dan “Shamble”), along with his human partner, activist lawyer Robin Deyer, and his ghostly girlfriend Sheyenne, tackle an illegal sweatshop that employs golems as slave labor, confront a senator who condemns the “unnatural” lifestyles of the supernatural creatures that now populate New Orleans’s Unnatural Quarter, and investigates the security problems that beset the mummified madame of a local brothel. Having already solved his own murder in the series opener, Death Warmed Over, Shamble and his allies continue to act as a force for justice and coexistence in a world that has grown increasingly diverse since the Big Uneasy broke down the barriers between the mortal and supernatural worlds. VERDICT The coauthor (with Brian Herbert) of the new Dune series and author of The Last Days of Krypton continues his foray into urban fantasy and tongue-in-cheek noir mystery with another satisfying tale of detective derring-do that should please fans of fiction revolving around zombies, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures.

    Kevin, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed Death Warmed Over and Stakeout. I was wondering if you are going to do more “in between novel” stoires like stakeout. Looking forward to reading Unnatural Acts and Hair Raising. I hope this series goes for a long while.

      thanks very much. I’ll be doing at least one more “betweener” story (they’re all actually independent, so it doesn’t really matter what order you read them in), and I hope to continue the series for at least three more novels. If you get a chance, it really helps if you can post a review on amazon or elsewhere once you’ve read them. It kicks up the numbers in amazon’s internal machinations.
