Book 47 for 2013

Dead Streets by Tim Waggoner. 248 pages

This sequel to Nekropolis chronicles another adventure for zombie detective Matt Richter and his friends - and enemies.

I found a few spots where the prose could have been polished a little more (the author has a tendency to repeat words in what I consider too close proximity) but he can write a jolly good plot and interesting characters - and Matt's zombie state is actually used to drive the plot rather than just being a gimmick.

I'll be getting book three from the library shortly and hoping there will be more after that.
