This review is from: Jack Wolfe, Paranormal Investigator (Kindle Edition)
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.
