Book Review: Dead Men Kill


Dead Men Kill: Detective Terry Lane is a standout cop—as tough as Eliot Ness of The Untouchables—who thought he’d seen it all . . . until now.  But he’s never seen a murder spree like this.  The evidence is clear: the killers have not emerged from the underside of the city, but from six feet under it—the walking dead.  And if Lane doesn’t think outside the box . . . he could end up inside one, buried alive.

Before seeing this book (and other similar books) on the shelf, I had no idea that L. Ron Hubbard had written pulp fiction. I honestly only knew about him as the writer of Dianetics and founder of the Church of Scientology.

This story is one of my favorites by L. Ron Hubbard thus far, as it is a murder mystery involving zombies!  I love mystery and suspense, and this book was definitely full of that. This is a very well-written tale of dead men coming back to life to commit more murders.  A good afternoon read.

*I received a copy of this book for review, but was not compensated financially in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based solely on my experiences while reading this book.*

 Next on my list is….

FEAR: Professor James Lowry didn’t believe in spirits, or witches, or demons. Not until a gentle spring evening when his hat disappeared, and suddenly he couldn’t remember the last four hours of his life. Now, the quiet university town of Atworthy is changing—slightly at first, then faster and more frighteningly each time he tries to remember. Lowry is pursued by a dark, secret evil that is turning his whole world against him while it whispers a warning from the shadows: If you find your hat you’ll find your four hours. If you find your four hours then you will die. . . .
