Ever since the Big Uneasy unleashed vampires, werewolves, and other undead denizens on the world, it’s been hell being a detective — especially for zombie P.I. Dan Chambeaux. Taking on the creepiest of cases in the Unnatural Quarter with a human lawyer for a partner and a ghost for a girlfriend, Chambeaux redefines “dead on arrival". But just because he was murdered doesn’t mean he’d leave his clients in the lurch. Besides, zombies are so good at lurching. Now he’s back from the dead and back in business.

What made the experience of listening to Death Warmed Over the most enjoyable?

The acting brought the words to life.

What other book might you compare Death Warmed Over to and why?

The only other series that comes to mind is the one "One Foot in the Grave", again a comedy and mystery with a supernatural character.

What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His vocal changes and accents put you right in the South and the story.
