9780091956523: The Devil's Detective

Welcome to Hell...

...where skinless demons patrol the lakes and the waves of Limbo wash against the outer walls while the souls of the Damned float on their surface, waiting to be collected.

When an unidentified, brutalised body is discovered, the case is assigned to Thomas Fool, one of Hell's detectives, known as 'Information Men’. But how do you investigate a crime in a place where death is commonplace and everyone is guilty of something?

Review:

"With the character of Fool, Simon Kurt Unsworth has crafted a hero among the damned. Original, tense, and full of twists, this is one hell of a great read" (Hugh Howey Sunday Times Bestselling author of Wool)

"Dark and luminous, compelling and insidious, DEVIL'S DETECTIVE is a novel that transcends genre" (Michael Marshall Smith)

"inventive and intriguing - Unsworth turns a journey through Hell into a heavenly read" (Alison Littlewood author of Richard and Judy pick A Cold Season)

"I think this might be the most whimsical murder story ever told. The Devil’s Detective is relentlessly creative, fearlessly witty, and completely twisted. Naturally, I loved it." (Chelsea Cain NYT bestselling author of One Kick and Heartsick)

"Hell as the setting for a noir investigation turns out to be as fun as it sounds in The Devil's Detective. Inventive and pacy, Simon Kurt Unsworth has created a world - underworld? - distinctly his own" (Andrew Pyper author of The Demonologist and The Damned)

Book Description:

A stunning blend of crime thriller and Dante-esque horror.
