Menace of Club Mephistopheles book. Too bad. I will try other books by Rod Redux. Every marriage is haunted  . Feb 26, 2011 Pagetranquility rated it it was amazing. Esther tried very hard to keep the screams bottled inside as the zombies groaned and scraped their fingers across the windows of the van. Her grandson lay in her lap, sleeping God knows how, his little hands clamped over his ears. He was a pale, beautiful boy with long, dark eyelashes.

Mephistopheles is a demon featured in German folklore. He originally appeared in literature as the demon in the Faust legend, and he has since appeared in other works as a stock character (see: Mephistopheles in popular culture). Traditional scholars of Germanic mythology commonly use the spelling "Mephistopholes," based on a transliteral understanding of the 15th century spelling of the character.

A genetically engineered bacteriophage mutates into a worldwide zombie plague, infecting people by the billions. Amid the chaos, weary survivors struggle to find a place of refuge, battling not just the revivified dead but their own demented fellow survivors. Meanwhile, stalking the inheritors of this blighted world is another mysterious group of creatures.

Sex, violence and magic collide in this fresh new take on 1920's detective noir fiction. Private detective Dixon Peters is better with a gun than a magic spell, but he must employ all his skills to foil an earth-shattering plot. Can he save the world and rescue his girl while battling shape-shifting familiars, a demon-possessed butler and the most powerful and well-dressed warlock on the planet?

Joseph Duncan may be able to write a rip-roaring, 30s-style "hard-boiled" detective story; he has a grasp of how such tough guys talk. He might be able to go beyond that and write a good urban fantasy novel on top of a detective story. It might even be funny as well. It's not impossible; Glen Cook did it with tongue firmly in cheek, and there's a fun movie, "Cast a Deadly Spell" from 1991. Harry Dresden started off as both a detective and a mage.

Unfortunately, Mr. Duncan cannot get his mind - and worse, his story - out of the gutter. The constant drumbeat of sexual innuendo, descriptions, and bizarre anatomical details so overpowers the rest of the tale that a reader with any discernment at all must give up the attempt or drown in the filth.

Lots of folks are writing good urban fantasy these days (Jim Butcher, Larry Correia, Robert Crane, JM Guillen, Kevin Hearne, James Hunter, Benedict Jacka - to name but a few). Seek for a good read among them, but until Mr. Duncan cleans up his act, seek elsewhere than here.

This is a good read. It pays hommage to the hardboiled detective style of Dashiel Hammet] and Raymond Chandler (one of the character's last name is Marlowe) while blending in a healthy dosage of urban fantasy and light horror. It also sprinkles humour and sex liberally.
However, and the main reason why I am unable to give it more than three stars, Dixon Peters is perhaps a little too inspired from Harry Dresden. I am a big fan of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and I kept feeling: "Boy! This passage reminds me an awful lot of a passage in the Dresden Files." This kept spoiling the fun for me and prevented me from feeling fully satisfied with the book.
Too bad. I will try other books by Rod Redux.

Rod has another hit! I had been dragging my feet on buying this book because of the genre... not usually my type of story... what a mistake! This book is great! Lots of action and excitement. Moved along at a fast pace... had that Mike Hammer detective type of story with very clever magic thrown in. Reminded me of Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files", but was easier to read... Rod has a very smooth writing style that keeps you interested and loathe to put the book down! I have become a big fan of Rod's due to his stellar writing skills. Buy the book... it's worth the read. And if you haven't read his other books, give them a try... "Mort" is great, and I love the "Oldest Living Vampire" series.

Very interesting take on the whole Private eye genre. Loved the 1920's setting with the hard boiled PI and his slimy cohorts. Great stuff. Throw in a little HP Lovecraft for good measure, maybe spice it up with some magic and bam....instant fun.
As with the other books from Redux, it can be graphic sexually so if you are really sensetive to that sort of thing go elsewhere...or skim those parts and enjoy the Lovecraftiannoirmagic novel. Lots of fun.

Very unique story. There's demons, magic, sex, intrigue, and it takes place in the 1920's. Private Detective Dixon Peters is an interesting and flawed character that never gives up. He uses magic, that sometimes saves him but also gets him in trouble. I hope there is a sequel. I've read three of Rod Redux's books and loved them all. He has the talent to make you feel like you're in the story feeling what the characters are. I've noticed all his books have received and average of 4 and a half stars. That's really good. If he keeps up this pace he's destined for greatness. Now I'm starting Mort.

I am starting to LOVE this author. This is the fourth of fifth book of his I have read, and I cannot get enough of his writing. This is a relaxing and fun read with colorful characters and a great plot. Dixon Peter, yes that's the protagonist's name, will keep you laughing with his tough guy/wonderful hearted man demeanor. Try this author!

Joseph Duncan is one of my favorite authors. I picked up this book to tide me over while I wait for the next (final?) book in his The Oldest Living Vampire series. I'm glad I did; I was not disappointed! Character development and storytelling were excellent; on par with what I expect from Mr. Duncan. I will be reading the rest of the Dixon Peters' series.
I was expecting something along the lines of his books on the Oldest Living Vampire, Gon. I was pleasantly surprised! I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. It doesn't have as much sex as his other books but just enough so that you know it's one of Rod Redux's novels. Loved it! Loved the language, the tone and the story line. Really hope there is a sequel!
