Dark Blood - John Meaney

Dark Blood is better than the first in this series, as the scope of the story deepens and widens.

After failing to protect his target, having his lover and superior die, Lieutenant Donal Riordan failed to stop himself getting killed, as well. In this city, however, they can put a zombie heart in you, plug you in, charge you up, and away you go as a zombie.

As a newly undead citizen Donal is a focal point for the politics of the city, where one party wants to remove rights from all non-human citizens. Things get nastier with more attacks on leaders, and the city's infrastructure, and Donal has to try and put together a coalition of people to do something about the attempted takeover, while staying alive.

A fine story of necroeverything, is Dark Blood.
