The Devil's Detective: A Novel

The Devil's Detective: A Novel - Simon Kurt Unsworth Channeling the layered mysteries of Jonathan Lethem's early work, Unsworth takes us on a bizarre, addicting trip into the every day life of a soul in hell. This particular soul, though, has the job of investigating violent crime in the pit, a job which lands him in hot water (pun intended) with both heaven and hell. What's amazing here is the way the book reads as both an inventive fantasy and a dark thriller, pulling off the neat trick of creating a surreal world and then finding its most thrilling story.
