Meet Matt Richter. Private Eye. Zombie.

His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis.

This place has always been ruled by the vampire lords.

Now they’re planning to destroy the city.

Over his dead body.

More pulp than Pulp Fiction, more butt-kicking than Buffy, Nekropolis is the first in a deathly new series.

Urban Fantasy [Zombie Detective / Undead City / Crime Overload / Sexy Vampires]
