"I could not put The Good, The Bad and The Infernal Down, it was too gripping a tale. And it is further proof Mr. Adams is one of the leading modern authors of fantastic literature." --Daily-Steampunk.com "Splendid action-packed set-pieces... the real joy of the novel, though, lies in its vivid cast of characters" --Starburt Magazine on The Good, The Bad And The Infernal
About the Author
Guy Adams trained and worked as an actor for twelve years before becoming a full-time writer. If nothing else this proves he has no concept of a sensible career. He mugged someone on Emmerdale, performed a dance routine as Hitler, and spent eighteen months touring his own comedy material around clubs and theatres. He is the author of the bestselling Rules of Modern Policing: 1973 Edition, a spoof police manual ‘written by’ DCI Gene Hunt of Life On Mars. Published by Transworld, it has sold over 120,000 copies. Guy has also written a two-volume series companion to the show published by Simon & Schuster; a Torchwood novel, The House That Jack Built (BBC Books); and The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, a fictional facsimile of a scrapbook kept by Doctor John Watson. Carlton Books published it in 2009 in association with the Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the writer’s birth.

Oddly though this felt more like a roughed out novella to fit the page requirements.
The characters were there, the storyline continued but it didn't grab hold and pull itself up over the cliff. It is worth reading to see where everyone was going. The ending though seems jumbled and at an odd place in the story.
He basically took all the things we call black and called them white, throughout the book. God, presumably THE Creator, is somehow dead and yet everything keeps on going. Mmm. And the Devil, Lucifer himself, is just a misunderstood fellow who does the right thing when given a chance. Heaven is portrayed as, well, *boring* and Hell is as lively and interesting as it gets. A mere mortal, Irish, slips with relative ease into God's presumed role and is (apparently) completely immune to that old adage, 'power corrupts'.
Nowhere to be seen (at least in this book) is any mention of Christ. Instead, we get a concoction of 'religious' belief, patterned on Christianity and made mostly of straw. Ridicule is aimed at that ('see? All of you were WRONG, all along, you puritanical judgmental bigots'). And right alongside this, every weird, impossible thing imaginable seems to be in existance due to the power of some kind of 'magic'. No explanation is given as to why it exists and why humans cannot access it - or for that matter, why there are no angels to complement the devils running about everywhere.
This is a briefly interesting foray into the Weird West (a combination of Hollywood Westerns and Steampunk), but it was made by someone who sees nothing wrong in moral relativism, kills off just about any character about to have a happy moment, and adds gore for the sake of gore.
Sorry, everyone. This book did not impress me. It is the second time in my life where the cover actually was better than the contents.
