Dial M for…Mutants! is the story of Buck Vincent, who is a reporter for a tabloid called The Midnight Extra. After twenty-nine years of reporting, he’s told it all; the weirdest and most unbelievable stories, including Bigfoot and the Crocodile Boy. But sometimes you run out of things to dream up, and Buck’s boss is nagging him for a better story.
Cue his new photographer team mate Becky. Buck has no desire to work with the new rookie, but his boss leaves him no choice. Together they chase a completely unbelievable story, that might not be so imaginary after all…
Oh boy, was this an entertaining read! Once in a while, I love to read some horror books that are mixed with humor. The author did an excellent job telling a high quality story, that was both funny, gory and creepy. All I can say is Mat has one heck on an imagination!
His two main characters, Betty and Buck, could’ve not been a more mismatched pair. Yet, that is exactly what made it work so well. I couldn’t get enough of the pair and hope to see them again in the future.
A big thanks to the author for the review copy.
