Product Description

Product Description

Jack Wolfe is a detective who plies his trade in the Paranormal Investigation arena. He is also a man of suspended beliefs, with a unique outlook on the universe. He works in Arcana City; a city that never sleeps. Unfortunately, it also never cleans its teeth or takes showers.

When the daughter of one of his previous clients gets kidnapped by a high-ranking demon-lord, Jack is hired to find her, rescue her and then keep her out of the clutches of the underworld. He is helped along the way by Collymoddle, an eccentric professor; Helen Hiwater, a museum curator; and Zak, a demon he shares an uneasy alliance with.

Things get even more complicated when Jack discovers that the demon-lord’s ambitions are greater by far than the fate of a single girl, which leaves the detective the unenviable task of coming up with a fee for saving the whole world.

To be successful Jack will need to do battle with demons, hellhounds, a homicidal fast-food proprietor, the most negligent bartender in the known world, annoying dramatic ambience, and many other obstacles besides.

And if that wasn’t enough to be getting on with, he’s also been forced into taking on another case, looking for an elderly lady’s lost cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny! 18 Aug 2011
By S. Horrigan TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jack Wolfe knows the nature of the universe. He knows that if he rummages around in the back of his wardrobe he will find the smart black general purpose suit jacket that he needs, even though he doesn't actually remember buying one, as that is the nature of wardrobes. He knows that in the wooden shed at the bottom of your garden is a rickety step ladder covered in cobwebs, even though you can't remember putting one there, as that is the nature of garden sheds. These skills and more will be needed for Jack to solve his latest case.

Not content with kidnapping the beautiful daughter of Jack's latest client once, the demon possessing the body of Black Dan Duall has kidnapped her again and once again is preparing to use her in a deadly and arcane ritual.

Aided by the more than slightly eccentric Professor Collymoddle, the beautiful museum curator, Helen Hiwater, and a strange assortment of other characters from Arcana City, Jack sets out to rescue her.... again.

I read the paperback version of this book a while ago and thoroughly enjoyed it, and this revised and updated Kindle version is even better. The City of Arcana and its collection of rather peculiar inhabitants are really well realised. The jokes hit my personal funny-bone, ranging from minor giggles to laugh out loud gags that had people on the train looking at me as if I was slightly mad.

Presentation on the Kindle is exceptionally good. Formatting is perfect and I didn't spot any typographical errors at all.

Overall - 5 stars! I really enjoyed this book! The writing is sharp and punchy, the main character is exceptionally well developed and the sense of humour is brilliant.

Even though the paperback version of this book was published over 10 years ago, I really hope that Craig Lunnon decides to write a follow up as I for one would be right at the front of the queue to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had written this book! 2 Oct 2012
By Shishya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very rarely this happens to me, that when I read a book, I smack myself and say, '"Why didn't I write this book?"

The book is superb. For one, it is really funny. You can randomly open a page, and there will be something that will make you laugh.

The story is good too. A hard boiled detective is trying to stop demons from taking over his city (& then the world). The detective has a flippant attitude, and doesn't show the demons much respect (the scenes in which he tells the demons to shut up are really funny). He must rescue the damsel, banish the demons, all the while trying to survive the bad food and beer of the city.

Some of the other reviewers have complained there is no character development. Seriously? People, this is not a literary novel. It is pure entertainment.

If you still aren't convinced, read the sample pages. If you find them funny, you will like the book, as the whole book has that sort of humour throughout.

If I had any complaints, they would be this: The author has no other books, no website. Looking at the other comments, this book may have been printed (on paper) a few years ago. Has he thrown in the towel after just one book?

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit corny but I loved it 9 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There have been comments about the constant one liners in this book, but I enjoyed them. Some of them are a little corny but I didn't mind that, I found they kept the story moving and I found myself reading in the style of Dixon Hill/Bogart.

The overall concept is not new and the main character very much reminded me of Dirk Gently with the professor being from the same mould as Gently's own. The author in this case is no Douglas Adams but I did like his style and I enjoyed the story, it kept me reading until the end. I'll definitely be looking out for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 3 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after reading a recomendation on the Kindle forum.
Well i wasn't sorry. A great read, very funny with glimpses of Douglas Adams here and there.
I think this author should get back to it and keep on writing. I think it would be a great shame if this was the only book produced by him.
Patiently waiting....

5.0 out of 5 stars highly enjoyable 17 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A delightful piece of nonsense in the Pratchett/Adams vein, with an overlay of Lee Child. I loved every rambling hyperbole, every dreadful joke, all the reverse philosophy and reverence for the laws of the natural order of things. Pure entertainment. Thank you Craig!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read. 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first read by Craig Lunnon, and I really enjoyed it.
It's a down to earth, humorous fantasy, with a super fit Jack Wolfe - good versus evil.
Give it a go.

Quite a good read. The style reminds me a little of Robert Rankin. It is certainly worth trying if you like your occult fantasy tongue in cheek
