Just finished reading this. It was much cheapness on the Kindle store, picked it up for 99p.
Meet Matt Richter. Private eye. Zombie.

His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis. And in this first case, Richter must help a delectable half-vampire named Devona recover a legendary artifact known as the Dawnstone, before it’s used to destroy Nekropolis itself. That is, if he can survive the myriad horrors that infest the city itself.
It's a bit silly, a bit tongue in cheek but quite entertaining. If Tim Burton wrote a novel it would be bit like this.
Its no award winner but I quite enjoyed it.

There are some free short stories based on the same characters on his site - http://www.timwaggoner.com/index.htm


"Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest."
- Denis Diderot (1713-1784)

If you liked that, you might like the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. Entertaining, and firmly tongue-in-cheek.
