This series revolves around a character called The Pan of Hamgee. And yes, he even calls himself The Pan. He lives on K'Barth which is a parallel Earth but with a different version of reality. Events can switch between "this Earth" (as I've come to think of it since it contains familiar landmarks from London) and K'Barth.
The Pan has been on his own and on the run since he was 16. Due to an unfortunate incident with a police sergeant, which happened entirely by accident, he has been blacklisted and on the run. One thing he is good at is getting away, both on foot and in a snurd (type of car). To survive he ends up being the getaway driver for a group of bank robbers and the story takes off from there. The Pan and the few allies he has are trying to stop Lord Vernon (who was the Police Sergeant who blacklisted him way back when) and his evil plans for world domination. There are plenty of challenges along the way which will keep you reading to the end of book four.
The writing style reminds me strongly of Terry Pratchett's Discworld, with some Douglas Adams thrown in. McGuire paints an engrossing tale with lots of subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) digs at our politics and society, leaving me quietly chuckling throughout. Very enjoyable.
I highly recommend you give all of M.T.s books a try. You won't be disappointed.
