Product description

Review

"Max Gladstone has created a fascinating universe and equally fascinating characters. It's a world in which Magic is Craft, and religion has some very practical rules, and he shows it through the stories of some very interesting characters. This is his first novel. I can't wait for his second."
--Jerry Pournelle, author of "The Mote in God's Eye" and "Lucifer's Hammer

""This has so many of my favorite things: an intriguing world, fun characters, a puzzle of a story that manages to be both funky fantasy and legal thriller. "Three Parts Dead" is simultaneously fast paced and thoughtful, and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
--Carrie Vaughn, author of the Kitty Norville series

"With his first book, Max Gladstone gives promise of being a true star of twenty-first century fantasy."
--John Crowley, author of "Little, Big" and "The Deep

""Max Gladstone has evidently devised a necromantic steampunk machine that enabled him to channel the Roger Zelazny of "Lord of Light", cathect the Neil Gaiman of "American Gods", and subsume the oeuvre of John Grisham, all with the aim of producing loopy, metaphysically-minded legal thrillers. It you doubt my conclusion, consider Exhibit A, the author's delirious and delightful first novel."
-- James Morrow, author of "The Last Witchfinder" and "Shambling Towards Hiroshima."

"Combining murder mystery, corporate intrigue, and thaumaturgic fireworks, "Three Parts Dead" gives us not just an excellent urban fantasy, but a brilliant new world to explore. I can't wait to see what he does next." --Maragret Ronald, author of "Spiral Hunt"



"This has so many of my favorite things: an intriguing world, fun characters, a puzzle of a story that manages to be both funky fantasy and legal thriller. "Three Parts Dead" is simultaneously fast paced and thoughtful, and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
--Carrie Vaughn, author of the Kitty Norville series
"Neil Gaiman and Jim Butcher are conjured for a China Mieville story about magical lawyers trying to revive a dead God in a steampunk city. Recommended: Hell yes!"

"The combination of legal thriller and steam-powered fantasy may seem improbable, but Gladstone makes it work with an appealing cast and a setting rich in imaginitive details....the story remains suspenseful and fast-paced throughout, and the diverse, female-led cast is a joy to follow through the fascinating and unusual landscape."
--"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review

"Sci-fi, fantasy and a murder mystery all rolled in one.... exciting and fast paced with unexpected twists and turns. It culminates in a big surprise ending."
