Cal McDonald mysteries
Anybody who's a fan of hard boiled mysteries can appreciate the Cal McDonald line of novels from comic author Steve Niles. Cal is a private investigator who was kicked off the police force for drug use. He now works with a ghoul sidekick named Mo'Lock solving cases involving the supernatural.
So far he's only published two novels, Savage Membrane and Guns, Drugs, and Monsters. I just finished the latter and all I can say is damn! This book is lean and mean, coming in at just over two-hundred pages, but the book finds Cal battling vampires, werewolves, satan worshippers, imps, demons, and pedophilic ghouls from D.C. to L.A.
Those looking for a sweet little twist on the hard-boiled genre or horror fans looking for a gritty new read will definitely be happy. Highly recommended!
