Hired by the owner of an all night diner to eliminate the zombie problem that is costing her customers, werewolf Duke and vampire Earl tackle an even stickier adversary who is out to take over the diner. Bloodier than Fried Green Tomatoes, funnier than the Texas Chainsaw Massacre! Welcome to Gil's all Night Diner, where zombie attacks are a regular occurrence and you never know what might be lurking in the freezer. Duke and Earl are just passing through Rockwood County in their pick-up truck when they stop at the diner for a quick bite to eat. They aren't planning to stick around until 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 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, and maybe, just maybe, the end of the world, too. Gory, sexy, and flat out hilarious, Gil's all Fright Diner will tickle your funny bone before ripping it out of its socket.

A diner manager offers two transients one hundred bucks to help clear out the diner. Of zombies. She offered the job to the right drifters -- Duke is a werewolf and Earl is a vampire.

Nothing special......good read if you're bored though. I would recommend Automatic Detective or In the Company of Ogres before this if you're interested in Martinez

An odd sort of book, definitely different. If you like Prachet's Discworld or Adam's Hitchhiker Universe, you'll feel right at home with this one.
