This one was one of the good ones.
If you are a fan of hard-boiled detective fiction mixed with out-of-this-world horror than you are really going to enjoy this book. If you dig Steve Niles Cal Macdonald series, or those classic Garth Ennis John Constantine tales from HELLBLAZER, or even Jim Butcher's series - THE DRESDEN FILES - you are really going to enjoy this book.
I will give you some warning though. If you aren't that familiar with Scottish thug-dialect you might need to swallow a pint of Guinness before you take a stab at reading this book. It isn't fancy. It isn't pretty. It's hard-boiled horror and it is well worth the read. It is a tale of a bargain with the Devil that goes dangerously wrong for every one concerned. The hero, Derek Adams or as he is sometimes known as - The Midnight Eye, is hired to unmake a bargain that was struck a couple of decades ago. I got a real kick out of the way that this scruffy old private eye manages to out-bargain Old Nick himself with an offer that Satan just cannot refuse.
yours in storytelling,
Derek Adams is a Glasgowegian private investigator who apparently has experience dealing with the outre elements of Glasgow. He is hired to invite a set of old army buddies to a meeting before their souls are reaped. It seems that this group while drunk one evening casually sold their souls to a fellow soldier for the equivalent of pretzels and a couple of beers. Now, thirty years later, their debt is being called.
This is essentially an enjoyable short story, albeit broken into a series of short chapters. The action moves along and the main character is suitably humorous and engaging. The Glasgow setting makes a nice change of pace from London, as does the fact that the main character is not a magical adept himself.
