Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood County in their pickup truck when they stop at the Diner for a quick bite to eat - where Loretta, the eatery's owner, offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl's a vampire, this looks to be right up their alley. But the shambling dead are just the tip of a particularly spiky iceberg. Seems someone's out to drive Loretta from the Diner and more than willing to raise a little Hell on Earth if that's what it takes. Before Duke and Earl get to the bottom of the Diner's troubles, they'll run into such otherworldly complications as undead cattle, an amorous ghost, a jailbait sorceress, and the terrifying occult power of pig-latin Gory, sexy, and flat-out hilarious, "Gil's All Fright Diner" will tickle your funny bone - before ripping it out of its socket!

Book Review: Gil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (06 Oct 2011)
This book was defiantly one of those surprise reads which turns out to be so much better than originally expected.
A werewolf and vampire team Duke and Earl make a stop at a diner and are offered some money to rid the diner of a zombie problem. They are in for more than they bargained for when they dig further into the mystery.
This is not a serious horror story but one filled with dark humor, action and some gore. Most impressed with Martinez writing style. The book was well written and the plot moves along at a steady pace. Recommended read
