The Drood family has been keeping the world safe for
years, utilizing the torcs that provide them armor so
they can fight against the things that go bump in the
night. The Droods aren't immortal, but they do feel
practically invincible. Unfortunately, Eddie's time is up
and he's now a dead man walking. Can Eddie and Molly find
the mysterious DR. DOA and defeat death once again?
DR. DOA is the tenth book in the Secret Histories
series and I highly suggest reading it in the context of
the series as a whole. DR. DOA has a lot of reminiscing
and readers new to the series may not appreciate the full
impact of these moments as much as fans of the series
will. Eddie is at a critical turning point in his life,
as he is re-evaluating everything around him. He doesn't
expect to live long but he can't stop being a Drood and
is determined to uncover who is killing him.
I love Eddie and Molly! Eddie, also known as the spy
Shaman Bond, has a snarky sense of humor that keeps me
laughing. Yes, sometimes the antics are over the top but
that's half the fun of any Secret Histories novel!
Eddie and Molly have a great relationship and Simon R.
Green shows us just how devoted they are to one another
in DR. DOA.
Simon R. Green has yet another winner on his hands with
DR. DOA! The Secret Histories series artfully
blends together the best elements of the urban fantasy
and spy genres as Eddie Drood/Shamon Bond is definitely a
hero to remember. My only complaint... the giant
cliffhanger that has me practically begging for the next

The name is Drood, Eddie Drood, also known as Shaman Bond.
My family has been safeguarding humanity for generations,
facing the hidden horrors of the world so you can sleep at
night and remain oblivious to the existence of the monstrous
nightmares that walk and stalk among us.
Speaking of predatory night terrors, there is a man who gets
away with murder. A man who specializes in removing the
problems from other people’s lives, by killing the people
who cause those problems. He operates from the darkest
shadows of the hidden world, coming and going unseen. No-one
knows who he is, just his nomme du muerte. Dr. DOA.
Somehow, this demented doc poisoned me. I don’t know how he
did it, when or where, but whatever is coursing through my
veins seems to be immune to magic cures and treatments. But
that’s not going to stop me from finding him and whoever
hired him and give them both a taste of their own medicine...
