Publisher Comments:

Detective Terry Lane is a standout homicide cop who thought he’d seen it all . . . until now. 

As tough as Kevin Costner as Eliot Ness of The Untouchables—and just as incorruptible—Lane has seen the darkest side of human behavior.  But he’s never seen a murder spree like this, targeting the wealthy, the powerful and the privileged.  For the evidence is clear: the killers have not emerged from the seamy underside of the city . . . but from six feet under it.  They are the walking dead, spreading terror and showing no mercy.

Following a trail of drugs, blackmail, and the twisted clues of a seductive nightclub singer, Detective Lane will have to think outside the box…or he could end up inside one, buried alive.

In 1934, while living in New York, the heart of the publishing industry, Hubbard struck up a friendship with the city’s medical examiner—a relationship that started his education in undetectable crime and provided him with authoritative clinical background for his detective stories.

 “A rollicking horror yarn [that] taps into the current craze for zombies. . . . heart-pounding.” —Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Unlock your inner Sherlock. When several of the city's most respected citizens are inexplicably killed by what appear to be zombies, all Detective Terry Lane has to go on is a blue-grey glove, a Haitian pharmacy bill for some very unusual drugs and a death threat from a mysterious stranger. Matters are soon complicated when a beautiful nightclub singer shows up who claims to have information that could solve the case, but whose motives are plainly suspect. Against his better judgment, Terry investigates her lead only to find himself sealed in a coffin en route to the next zombie murder—his own. "...DEAD MEN KILL is frightful fun from yesteryear.” —Fangoria

Synopsis:

Detective-Sergeant Terry Lane investigates dual murders and discovers that the killers are already dead! Clue by clue, Lane unveils a plot involving Haitian voodoo and stumbles down a twisted trail towards the evil Dr. Leroux—and a possible fate worse than death.

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.

Ridiculous, yet entertaining. That pretty much sums up this audiobook experience. Detective Terry Lane has a tough job and dead men walking around making more dead men is simply a pain in the ass. But Lane rises to the challenge with some typical pulp fiction right hooks and gun play.

This novella followed pretty basic hard and fast rules about pulp fiction detective zombie novels. While I got some side entertainment from this tale while folding laundry and making dinner, overall I enjoyed L. Ron Hubbard‘s science fiction works much more. Action and damsels in distress drove this story forward.

The audio cast on this book was entertaining. For action-driven plots, I enjoy multiple narrators with sound effects. This production was quite good, reminding me of the old-time radio broadcasts.
