Dead Men Kill by L. Ron Hubbard

Title: Dead Men Kill

Author: L. Ron Hubbard

Published: Galaxy Press, 2010

Pages: 144

Summary: When several of the city's most respected citizens are inexplicably killed by what appear to be zombies, all Detective Terry Lane has to go on is a blue grey glove, a Haitian pharmacy bill for some very unusual drugs and a death threat from a mysterious stranger. Matters are soon complicated when a beautiful nightclub singer shows up who claims to have information that could solve the case, but whose motives are plainly suspect. Against his better judgment, Terry investigates her lead only to find himself sealed in a coffin en route to the next zombie murder—his own.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: This is not a book I would suggest reading at night if you get spooked easily.  At times I let my imagination run wild and at night time, reading scary stories, I can get pretty nervous.  I have to say that Dead Men Kill was really awesome as it combined horror and mystery which I love.

The writing style was really good.  It’s different to the kinds of books I usually read and so I find it to be quite a nice change of pace.

The story itself had the ability to keep me sucked in.  I felt like there was never a dull moment in the book because everything was just go, go, go.  I really enjoyed that as it helped me get through the story faster.
I have to say that I had fun guessing who the bad guy was and I did get it right, I always like it when I guess right.

Overall, I really enjoyed Dead Men Kill.  It was something a little different and had a lot of horror and mystery thrown in that made it awesome.

  1. This looks like an interesting book and I might have to pick it up! I'm finishing up a pretty great book now called "Three Fugitives" by Nat Howler, it's part of the Six Stones Trilogy. You can check out him and the book on the website http://nathowler.com/. Thanks for the review and suggestion!
