Death Warmed Over

by Kevin J. Anderson

"A darkly funny, wonderfully original detective tale."--Kelley ArmstrongSingle Dead Detective Seeks ClueEver since the Big Uneasy unleashed vampires, werewolves, and other undead denizens on the world, it's been hell being a detective--especially for zombie P.I. Dan Chambeaux. Taking on the creepiest of cases in the Unnatural Quarter with a human lawyer for a partner and a ghost for a girlfriend, Chambeaux redefines "dead on arrival." But just because he was murdered doesn't mean he'd leave his clients in the lurch. Besides, zombies are so good at lurching. Now he's back from the dead and back in business--with a caseload that's downright unnatural. A resurrected mummy is suing the museum that put him on display. Two witches, victims of a curse gone terribly wrong, seek restitution from a publisher for not using "spell check" on its magical tomes. And he's got to figure out a very personal question--Who killed him? For Dan Chambeaux, it's all in a day's work. (Still, does everybody have to call him "Shamble"?) Funny, fresh, and irresistible, this cadaverous caper puts the P.I. in R.I.P. . ..with a vengeance. "Wickedly funny, deviously twisted and enormously satisfying. This is a big juicy bite of zombie goodness. Two decaying thumbs up!"--Jonathan Maberry"Anderson has become the literary equivalent of Quentin Tarantino in the fantasy adventure genre."--The Daily Rotation"An unpredictable walk on the weird side. Prepare to be entertained." --Charlaine Harris

Death Warmed Over

by Lee Martin

When Deb starts asking questions this time, she quickly discovers that quite a few Fort Worth residents own '57 Chevrolets-and that you'd have to have a very good reason to burn one. The clues point up a twisting rural road to a farmhouse where a little girl is found dead, still in her parochial school uniform. Deb is suddenly investigating a kidnap-murder in which the parents were foolish enough to send the ransom money through the mail. Spurred into action by the facts of the case, Deb is held back by Federal postal regulations and long-standing Fort Worth rivalries and dismayed by the realization that some of the chief suspects are people she's known all her life.
