Kevin J. Anderson has mastered the witty, tongue in cheek kind of humor that makes you emit a dry chuckling laugh, as opposed to the "rolling on the floor" moments of a lot of slapstick humor. I haven't read his previous two books in the Dan Shamble series, but you can bet your behind that after reading Hair Raising, I've put every book he's ever written on hold at the library or ordered from Amazon. That's not to say that you can't read this book on its own; you can, except I have now found a new favorite paranormal author and you will go get the first ones!

Hold on to your hats (and body parts) because Dan Shamble, Zombie PI is an amazingly entertaining character in a market awash with zombies and the paranormal. In Hair Raising, Dan Shamble is back for his third adventure and this case is one of the most peculiar yet. A serial scalper...yes it's as gory as it stalking the Unnatural Quarter and has been targeting the supernatural community's werewolves. Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I., must try to solve the disturbing case while also navigating the twists and turns of a werewolf gang-war (you thought the Bloods and the Crips were bad...). Hair Raising was a complete and total riot in ridiculousness from the start. With funny, crazy humor, and awesome banter and dialogue, I really couldn't find anything wrong. I was one anxious girl, reading with intensity and often bouts of laughter, and I didn't stop until the early morning. What a read. If you have any inclination to the paranormal, mystery, or humor genres, you are certainly going to enjoy Dan Shamble and this entire series.
