Ever 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 “The Dan Shamble books are great fun.” — Simon R. Green

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.4 Stars!I did not expect to enjoy this book nearly as much as I did in the end. This book is incredibly original with enough humor that I found myself chucking every once in a while. I have a slightly weird sense of humor and something about t...
Over a decade ago, the Big Uneasy unleashed vampires, werewolves, ghosts, and all manner of undead unto the world. Dan Chambeaux--called Shamble by many of his friends--is a Private Investigator, and since rising from the dead as a zombie, has seen no need to change his occupation. After all, he e...
Perfect. A zombie detective who was shot in the head and as a result has a nice bullet hole in his forehead (and through the back of his head). The concept of Dan and Sheyenne remind of bit of the (cancelled way too soon TV show) Pushing Daisies. This was a light, entertaining read. I giggled at...
Disappointed that this is a DNF... It is just so repetitive in details of the story and the main character.. Yet, they're introducing new characters and cases every 20 pages and all I know is that our main character is a zombie detective, he's in a partnership law & order business, and he talks an a...
The world-building and details were great, but the story wasn't that interesting. More silly than funny.
