New cover for Dan Shamble #2, UNNATURAL ACTS

Kensington just sent me the wonderful new cover for my second Dan Shamble, Zombie PI novel, UNNATURAL ACTS. It really captures the fun of the series.

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…

The book will be released in January.  Book 1, DEATH WARMED OVER, hits bookstores this September. And  I’ll be delivering Book 3, HAIR RAISING, by the end of the week (for May 2013 publication).  You can preorder DEATH WARMED OVER: Click Here.
