Publisher's Summary

For career criminals Jack and Billy Thatcher, ripping off London's most notorious gangster seems like a sure fire way to kick off their retirement plans. Unfortunately they don't bank on their bosses' underworld connections going a lot deeper than expected.

Now finding themselves on the run from undead monsters and chainsaw-wielding freaks, the Thatcher boys will have to employ every dirty trick they know if they want to live to see another dawn.

    I listen to many audiobooks and review the ones I find most notable.

    "Entertaining!"

    This book was great. It was funny and had a good story line. I loved all the characters and want to know what happens to them. Definitely invested. The plot was a little unexpected and definitely interesting. It is also fantastically British in a very American-accessible way. The narrator was really great. The characters sound exactly how I heard them in my head when I read it in the print version. I am really pleased I spent a credit on this. For a good time pick up Shoot the Dead.

    For more Steve Wetherell and other comedic fantasy writers, tune into their podcast, Authors and Dragons. It's hilarious. You're welcome.

    "London's Culling!"

    Don't hold the Clash pun against it, this audio book is awesome! Luke Thompson's narration takes great, and makes it near perfection. I found myself being oddly reminded of Terry Pratchett's "City Watch" books by the whole thing.

    Classic East End thugs, Jack and Billie Thatcher vs zombies would not have gone over half so well with me. There's just been too much of that. This is more East End thugs versus voodoo yardies, vampires, zombies, the police, and an ancient demon skull thing. Jack and Billie are villains and no attempt is made to redeem them and their all the more likable for it.

    Luke Thompson's narration only really misfires in a few places. Jock's accent seems to fall apart when he leaves comedy Scot to make serious threats. Leon's accent wobbles a bit too. Neither thing really takes away from the story, but it needs mentioning.

    This wasn't the first of Steve Wetherell's books I was hoping would make it to Audible, but having read it, I'm even more determined to get the rest as they become available.

    "Fantastic narration!"

    This wouldn't be my usual type of book, but the narrator's skills really bring the story to life - enthralling and well paced, I enjoyed every minute of it!

    "Fun, fast-paced, and unexpected."
    Would you listen to Shoot the Dead again? Why?

    Will definitely listen again... funny, gory, and characters I'll miss! The supernatural was a great twist on the usual zombie formula, and the comedy is so perfectly British!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Billy! Great character, and very funny in his own simple way! Loved the porn star bit. XD
