I Ate the Sheriff, K. Bennett’s third installment in the Mallory Caine, Zombie at Law series, is as fast-paced and entertaining as the previous novels. Mallory has settled into her reanimated existence, attending Zombie Anonymous meetings, working on a defense for her zombie-killing father, and trying to stay on the straight and narrow. Hard to do when you’re hungering for PhD brains, resisting the romantic advances of a werewolf and refusing to pick sides in a war between good and evil that is shaping up in Los Angeles.

Though fictional, Mallory is a shining example of all a zombie is capable of. She regulates her need for human brains by subsisting on cow brains. She repairs her physical injuries and passes as a human. She continues relationships forged during her life, including with her perpetually stoned mother and the lover who had a hand in her zombification. Her quick wit and legal know how allow her to continue to live independently and thrive in her new circumstances.

K Bennett once again puts together a compelling story with a believable, capable zombie lead character. An enjoyable read that belongs in every zombie lover‘s library. Pick up I Ate the Sheriff and treat yourself. Available at Amazon in Kindle or mass market paperback.
