Anton Strout recommends
Deadtown (2009)
(Deadtown, book 1)
Nancy Holzner
"DEADTOWN is a perfect blend of mystery, fantasy, humor and even modern-day social issues. It's Boston as you've never seen it . . . where the shapes shift, the zombies gnaw, and the blood flows warm through the oh-so-delicious veins of the area known as Deadtown. Victory Vaughn gives evil a run for its money."
A Wolf at the Door (2012)
(Jesse James Dawson, book 3)
K A Stewart
"A welcome addition to the urban fantasy genre."
