URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Nekropolis 3: Dark War - Tim Waggoner

Release Date: 02/06/11


Meet Matt Richter. Private Eye. Zombie.

From his first arrival in the deathless city of Nekropolis, ex-cop Richter has found himself embroiled in disputes with the city’s vampiric rulers, shapeshifters, golems and other monstrosities. But Nothing has prepared him for the Dark War.

Discover the explosive third book in the Matt Richter series, the stunning follow up to Nekropolis and Dead Streets.


What do you get when you cross film noir, urban fantasy and a good (or bad depending on how you look at it) helping of humour? Well you get this far out creation from Tim Waggoner featuring Zombie Gumshoe, Matt Richter whose hard line is disconcerting in a world full of monsters.

Add to this some great twists, a cracking world for the character to tread the beat and it’s all in a very satisfactory read. What Tim brings to the genre is mystery with some great twists, a wickedly twisted sense of humour and an imagination that were the project to be filmed could well break a film studio. All in a great read and one that the only real downside was the cliff hanger ending which spells a more imminent problem for our detective hero and those he works with. Great stuff.
