With his ghost girlfriend Sheyenne, his bleeding-heart lawyer partner Robin, and his best human friend Officer Toby McGoohan, Dan Shamble is back from the dead and back on the case. The feathers will fly as he goes face-to-beak with the evil peckers. Bonus: Includes the short story “Road Kill.” Praise for Tastes Like Chicken“A rollicking detective yarn, with villains galore, and a story you can sink your teeth into. While this Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series doesn’t have the same level of brutality as The Walking Dead, some of the things in Tastes Like Chicken are truly horrific. The humor and fun characters help balance the horror with great storytelling.” —Fresh Fiction
