Medical-school-dropout police detective Richelle Dadd is… well, dead.
But that won’t stop her from trying to hold on to her house in a divorce battle with a bitter husband. Or keep her from digging into her own murder, to discover who put the bullet into her heart. Or from coming to terms with her Gypsy heritage. And it certainly won’t stand in the way of finding out the reason she’s been reanimated as a zombie assassin, no longer in control of her life.
Richelle will face off against Romani shamans, double-crossing ghosts, a partner she can’t trust, and her own undead nature in a journey into the depths of the occult world and out the other side without losing her sense of humor – or humanity – along the way.
It’s a good thing her deductive skills – and her aim – are still up to par.
I received a copy of this book at no cost in exchange for an honest review.
I have read so many paranormal, fanatasy, zombie stories in my years as a book reviewer. I can honestly say though, that this book, The Dead Detective, has a unique and fresh approach. The main character, Richelle Dadd is sassy, funny and very likable. She takes being undead, and being Gypsy cursed, pretty much in stride. There is a little bit of ill begotten romance, adventure, a mystery and some ghostly and real life gore all wrapped up in a fun to read package. I laughed and cringed many times while reading this book. The plot is interesting and enagaging, and I stayed up late a few nights just to find out what happened next. If you are a fan of paranormal and zombies, this is a must read!
