Robert’s #CBR5 Review #01: Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues by Diana Rowland

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues by Diana RowlandEven White Trash Zombies Get the Blues picks up right where My Life as a White Trash Zombie left off. New zombie/morgue assistant Angel Crawford is finally pulling her life together after years of bad choices. Too bad she becomes the only witness to a robbery at the morgue where the only stolen item is a body that hasn’t been checked in yet. Suspicion falls on Angel because of her criminal background even though the main theory–losing the body during transport–seems unlikely.

Diana Rowland spent a lot of time building Angel’s world in My Life as a White Trash Zombie, including a whole new set of rules for zombies. These are not the mindless drones of a Romero film; they are immortal beings perfectly capable of living normal lives so long as they consume human brains a few times a week. Physical exertion and starvation cause deterioration and more traditional zombie behavior. Crime syndicates have formed to provide brains to the small zombie population and the largest group has their own ethical standards for when a person can be turned.

  1. Good to know. I’ve been so burned by crap self-published books that I’m now gunshy. But this one looked like something I would dig (not generally into urban fantasy but dig Kate Daniels and this seems to have a similar vibe). White Trash Zombies just sounds like so much fun 😉
