Publisher's Summary

First in a brand new urban fantasy series
"Because I'm an inbetweener - and the only one anyone knows of at that - the dead turn to me when something is askew between them and the living. Usually, it's something mundane like a suicide gone wrong or someone revived that shouldn'ta been."
Carlos Delacruz is one of the New York Council of the Dead's most unusual agents - an inbetweener, partially resurrected from a death he barely recalls suffering, after a life that's missing from his memory. He thinks he is one of a kind - until he encounters other entities walking the fine line between life and death. One inbetweener is a sorcerer. He's summoned a horde of implike ngks capable of eliminating spirits, and they're spreading through the city like a plague. They've already taken out some of NYCOD's finest, leaving Carlos desperate to stop their master before he opens up the entrada to the Underworld - which would destroy the balance between the living and the dead. But in uncovering this man's identity, Carlos confronts the truth of his own life - and death...

A dark delight

Where does Half-Resurrection Blues rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really did enjoy this one, certainly ranks in my top 10, maybe top 5, a combination of engrossing storyline and rhythmic, masterful telling from the author


What did you like best about this story?

I think this story had a lot of the ingredients that I like, snappy tempo, noire setting, bit of a dark feel without being too relentless about it, and the narration is a treat, Daniel really knows how to bring his own story alive with a rhythm and intensity that suits the material


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Living half-life to the full
