5.0 out of 5 stars Woof!, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dog: An EM Faustus Novel: 3 (Paperback)
Now what to say about EM Faustus? He is a P.I. in the true film noir, Humphrey Bogart, Micky Spillaine, sense, even down to the trilby and smokes. Nothing PC about our hero.A well rounded, fully coloured in character. Even if the colour is mainly black. Come to that so are all the other character's, large and small, human and fantastic.
Trouble is EMF works on the streets. Now The Streets are a fantastic creation to rival the main protagonist himself. The Streets are really a character in the book and as such have a lot to say for themselves. The streets are the haunt of Vampires, (with speech impedements) the hosts of the Fae, muderous or otherwise, Werewolves, angels, demons and a whole cast of fantastic, interesting characters. All interacting well with our hero as he searches for the Dog in question, (amongst other things, this is not just a detective story about pets, in case you were wondering)
Mr Davison brings this whole mix to the boil time and time again. Holding extremly well onto the storyline whilst keeping the stew firmly readable and page turning (able).
I was suitably impressed with this first outing of Mr Faustus into print and I am sure and I hope that this is the precursor of many more to come. (I know there are many more adventures. Well at least one because it says so in the book) Finally I could not help but be reminded, (favourably) with Michael Moorcocks Jerry Cornelius novels.
