DEATH WARMED OVER by Kevin J. Anderson

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 case load 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.
OMG! This is the first book in the Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series and it's awesome fun. I had a blast reading it.

Being dead hasn't stopped PI Dan Chambeaux from carrying on with his life. Sure, being a zombie means he has to take extra care of himself and really wants to solve who killed him, but there are bills to pay and Chambeaux & Deyer has a full caseload--including a messy divorce, two witch sisters who want compensation from a publisher for a 'spelling error', a mummy who wants to be free from the museum, and a vampire being threatened by a fanatical group.

Yeah, life in the Unnatural Quarter can get pretty messy, but Dan's an awesome detective. And along with his human business partner, his poltergeist girlfriend, and cop BHF (Best Human Friend) he's bound to get answers. Plus a lot of trouble, too!

I loved the tone of this book. It was funny, but still filled with dangerous situations. The characters are so likeable, and outlandish. I loved this book. A lot.

But the best thing about it is just how much fun it is. It's so much fun!

I've already preordered the second book...
