It's the latest in Moore's series of best selling novels, including "Lamb," "Fluke," and "A Dirty Job." That last one is about an ordinary guy who discovers one day he's been chosen to be the Grim Reaper.

Moore says he starts by putting ordinary people in extraordinary situations, where funny things will happen to them. He told Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr likes to do a lot of research. The new book is a sequel to Moore's 1995 book "Blood-sucking fiends."
