    Sam Hunter is a bit of an animal. He's a former Twin Cities cop who lost his badge because of excessive force. Abusive husbands, child molesters, and other lowlifes wound up looking like they'd been mauled by a dog...or a wolf. Now Sam's a low-rent PI in Philadelphia. He takes the kinds of cases no one wants. His clients are usually on the fringes of society. The kind who are prey for all manner of predators - human and otherwise.

    Ray Porter does a fine job as usual.

    This is not the strongest Mayberry work. I think there was potential here but the stories are so short that there's not a lot beyond a quick setup and a bloody conclusion. That's fine for one or two but beyond that it's boring.
    It's like Mayberry needs more time to build up a head of steam.
    There's a lot of fantasy creature P.I. stories out there so there needed to be more here.

    Oddly, though I found this collection disappointing, it convinced me to give the much longer pine deep series a chance.

    Some problematic vocabulary

    It's been 30 years since the apocalypse and 15 years since the murder of the last human being at the hands of robots. Humankind is extinct. Every man, woman, and child has been liquidated by a global uprising devised by the very machines humans designed and built to serve them. Most of the world is controlled by an OWI - One World Intelligence, the shared consciousness of millions of robots uploaded into one huge mainframe brain.

    It may feature robots and energy weapons but this is a fantastic western, through and through.

    Officers Fox and Hammond, along with journalist Billy Trout, are calling it the beginning of the end. This is the zombie apocalypse. An insane escaped serial killer is infecting Stebbins County with a deadly virus, and now the whole world is watching while Fox, Trout, and the remaining inhabitants of Stebbins fight for their life against - what? The undead? The President and the National Guard are ready to nuke Stebbins, PA off the map and cut their losses. But the infection is spreading and fast.

    I enjoy both Mayberry and Dufris's work. While I dislike readers who seem totally unmoved by what they're reading. Dufris is a bit too emotional sometimes. Still, thumbs up.
