Werewolf Smackdown – Mario Acevedo

Werewolf Smackdown by Mario Acevedo? Think ‘Hard-boiled Vampire Detective’.

Not a keeper, but it doesn’t deserve shredding either.  The title and absurd cover are probably the best part of the book – and if you see the other titles in this particular detective series, those titles are even better ‘pulp’ examples.

The story itself is workmanlike but not elevated by any awesome absurdist or funny moments.  Either Christopher Moore or the Dresden Files are better bets.
