Dan Shamble

Role Model
by Kevin J. Anderson (2014)

Dan Chambeaux, a.k.a. “Shamble,” is an undead Detective, working in some parallel universe to our own where Ghouls, Vampires and mythical creatures somehow also exist.

In this novelette, Dan attends a Comic-Con type event and solves a murder. It’s all rather ordinary and business-like prose from Anderson. He may be trying for humour, but the characters are a but too mundane to raise from the dead a hint of a chuckle.
