Publisher's Summary

Flushing out evil

There's something fishy going on in the Unnatural Quarter. Bodies are floating face-down, the plumbing is backing up, and something smells rotten - even to a zombie detective like Dan Shamble. Diving into the slimy underbelly of a diabolical plot, Dan comes face-to-tentacles with an amphibious villain named Ah'Chulhu (to which the usual response is "Gesundheit!"). With his snap-happy gang of gator-guys - former pets flushed down the toilet - Ah'Chulhu wreaks havoc beneath the streets. While feuding weather wizards kick up storms and a gang of thieving lawn gnomes continues their reign of terror, Dan Shamble is running out of time - before the whole stinking city goes down the drain.…

Phil Gigante is genius in this series

Not that Kevin Anderson doesn't deserve credit for the excellent material, but Phil Gigante takes it to the next level. It's like he was made to be Dan Shamble and company. This series is one case where I can honestly say I don't think I would enjoy it nearly as much in print.

This installment in the series was particularly funny which is good because the humor is one of the things I love most about these books. It follows pretty much the same pattern as the previous books- Dan (with the help of Sheyenne, Robin and McGoo) works on several cases at once with some of them ultimately being interconnected. Lots of fun new clients. An absolutely delightful listen. Well worth the audible credit!!

A little too much slime

This is a fun book. It goes a little overboard in the description of the results of some misadventures. The character descriptions are good, the introduction of new characters is good. There were a few inconsistencies in the story that caused me to give it 3 stars. They did not detract to the overall story.

#1 Detective TO THE DEAD!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed Slimy Underbelly! The characters, as always, were well developed. Kevin J. Anderson masterfully writes the Dan Shamble series and Phil Gigante brings them to life !!!

Bring Back Phil Gigante as reader

Would you listen to Slimy Underbelly again? Why?

Yes - I like the story and I didn't realize how much Phil doing the reading made the series.

What did you like best about this story?

The whole mixture just works

Any additional comments?

PLEASE PLEASE tell me that Kevin Anderson reads or can be given this information. If the guy who read "Working Stiff", I won't be buying any more of this series through Audibles. Bring back Phil.

OK

Not as good as previous installments. The story was a bit contrived and unnecessarily complex, making it hard to follow.

The Afterlife Goes On

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would still recommend this book as these characters are great fun. While this isn't the best installment in the series it continues to amuse and entertain and what more can you ask than that.

What other book might you compare Slimy Underbelly to and why?

I have heard it compared to the Jim Butcher Novels but cannot speak to that myself. In my experience it is somewhat similar to the Xanth novels in its tongue and cheek take on magic.

Which scene was your favorite?

The final scene with Achooloo and his parents is just hilarious...and disturbing...and weird...and great!

If you could rename Slimy Underbelly, what would you call it?

The Tentacles Awaken
