"Another full caseload for the zombie detective . . ." in this "inventive" urban fantasy novel from a New York Times-bestselling author (Kirkus Reviews). 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 hitman, 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 . . . Praise for Death Warmed Over: "A darkly funny, wonderfully original detective tale." -Kelley Armstrong, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of A Twist of Fate). "An unpredictable walk on the weird side. Prepare to be entertained." -Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse True Blood series "Like Alexander McCall Smith's Mma Precious Ramotswe, [Anderson's] sleuths really do settle most of their cases, and they provide a lot of laughs along the way." -Kirkus Reviews
