Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The first three Dan Chambeaux novels appeared in rapid succession in 2012 (Death Warmed Over, Stakeout at the Vampire Circus, and Unnatural Acts). Now here’s the fourth book featuring the zombie private eye who’s better known by his moniker, Shamble. Ever since the Big Uneasy, humans have been getting used to sharing the world with all manner of once-mythological creatures, and Dan, being one of the walking dead (the first book in the series saw him solving his own murder), catches a lot of seriously odd cases. Like this one: someone is scalping werewolves. Is it some weirdo with a follicle fixation, or do the scalpings signal trouble between the two werewolf factions (full-time lycanthropes and those who get furry once a month)? As usual, Dan is also juggling a variety of other cases: a murdered vampire; a fellow zombie who wants his (mortal) ex-wife to give him visitation rights so he can see his son; a bodybuilder—and not the kind who lifts weights—who purchased a defective spleen from an online vendor. The Shamble stories are comedies, obviously, and very good ones, too. The characters are weird and wonderful; the environment is carefully constructed (it makes its own kind of logical sense); and there are plenty of high jinks (a werewolf expert named Walter Zevon, named, presumably, for the musician Warren Zevon, one of whose hits is highly relevant here). Fans of humorously handled urban fantasies, mysteries, and horror stories won’t stop laughing until long after they’ve finished the book. --David Pitt

This installment of this zombie P.I. series starts with Dan doing some investigating for Rusty, a "full-time" werewolf. One of the major storylines in this book involves fighting between the "full-time" werewolves & the "monthlies". The full-time werewolves are werewolves that are furry all the time. Monthlies are only furry during a full moon. As with the other books in this series, there are a few other storylines going at the same time. One of Dan's other clients in this book is the local coroner, Archibald Victor. Victor hires him to look into his consumer complaints against a spare body part establishment. Looking into Victor's complaints puts him in the path of zombie big time thug/businessman Tony Cralo, owner of Tony Cralo's Spare Parts Emporium. I always enjoy these books because they usually make me laugh, but there is usually one storyline that pulls at the heartstrings. For me, in this book, that would be the story of zombie Steve Halstead. Steve & Dan both became zombies and crawled out of their graves at the same time. Steve comes to Dan because of his son. Steve's wife refuses to let him see his son claiming that seeing his father as a zombie will terrify him, yet she is demanding child support. Steve wants to be able to see his son. He also says that he left a good life insurance policy that should have provided for his son when he died. This is the other thing I love about this series - the characters & that you care about them. Even though a lot of things in these books are humorous, the "monsters" in these books are portrayed just like regular people. There are good and bad paranormal characters, not all of them are physically perfect.Read more ›

This series is a lot of fun. It's light and humorous and not like a typical "zombie book". This series is really a PI series but the characters just happen to be supernatural creatures-- zombies, ghosts, werewolves, vampires, etc. The cast of characters are fun and the cases entertaining. I love the humor that is laced throughout the books. While I suppose you don't have to start at the beginning of the series, I think the first two books are just a little bit better than this one (I give those 5 stars). I listened to the audiobooks and absolutely love the narrator, Phil Gigante. He does a fabulous job with all of the voices. These books are well worth the audible credits.

Another fun book in the Dan Shamble series, combining an old school (zombie) detective feel with "ba dum bum" humor. As in the first two books, there are multiple and seemingly disparate cases that converge together as Dan solves the various mysteries. The resolution felt a little mild and, in one case, too far-fetched in this installment which is why I gave it the 4 rather than 5 stars of the previous books.

"We must have been a strange sight, a singed zombie detective and a bearded lady moving like two bats out of hell." -Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I.

Hair Raising is another fun entry in Kevin J. Anderson's Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. series. This time werewolves take center stage as friction between full-time and part-time werewolves comes to a head. As always, zombie detective Dan Chambeaux (aka Shamble) is in the middle of it all. Sorting through customer satisfaction issues with a body parts store, helping a harpy track down the culprit of a back luck charm, assisting a zombie with child support issues (if you're dead, do you still pay child support?), and solving the mystery behind random werewolf scalpings, Dan has his hands full. The book certainly keeps the story entertaining with lots of crazy, oddball elements.

In previous books, we've seen Dan deal with a lot of weird cases. This time around, someone is scalping werewolves. The random violence serves to worsen the already tense relationship between werewolves. On one side is the full time werewolves derogatorily called hairballs. On the other side is the once a month werewolves who transform when the moon is full, aka monthlies. The two sides hate each other and are looking for a fight. Unfortunately it's up to Dan to try and avert a massacre in the Unnatural Quarter.

Of course one case is never enough, and Dan has several. Each case blends the mundane reality of the real world with the fantastical reality of the Unnatural Quarter. In a city where monsters are very much real, crazy stuff happens. It makes for some entertaining situations, plus it gives the story plenty of room for humor. However, I was also surprised by the tension and drama that developed later in the book.

The fur has really started to fly as a serial scalper is taking the top off several full-time werewolves in the Unnatural Quarter. But Dan Shamble, Zombie PI is on the case, and if he can get to the bottom of the endless pile of clues thrown at his feet, he just might figure out who's skimming off the tops in time to prevent a gang war between the Hairballs and the Monthlies.

Of course, Shamble runs into the most unusual cast of characters along the way: a voodoo vampire tattoo artist, a mad scientist, a grossly obese zombie crime lord, and an assortment of Hairballs, both the kind that clog up drains and the ones walking around on two feet howling at the moon. And with the Worldwide Horror Convention in town as well, the hilarity just never stops.

This was another fun, fast-paced read in what is turning out to be a fantastic series!
