The risen dead, ghosts, vampires, and demons roam the streets in Lowie Mortem (Chronicles of a Dead Detective) by J. Rene Munz. Thirty-five-year-old forensic detective Lowie Mortem was shot dead in the head while investigating a macabre crime scene in Metro City. He was brought back to life by a warlock who’s indebted to Lowie for saving his grandson. Stronger and possessing supernatural abilities, Lowie resumes his investigations and discovers evil forces behind certain cold cases, including his own demise. He stumbles upon Angelique, a vampire that has lived for centuries-the legendary “Dark Cross Templar”-and a misunderstanding nearly made the two kill each other before they joined forces to confront the real enemies.
