Review

"The writing is sharp and funny—think the 'Hitchhiker's Guide,' only paranormal. If you read only one book about a shape-shifting Post-Relationship Personal Effects Repossession Specialist this year, make it 'An Oracle Walks Into a Bar.'"
-- Andrew Shaffer, NYTimes bestselling author of "Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery"

Folks say you should write what you know. That’s damned good advice, so I write about ordinary Midwesterners making an extraordinary mess of things. Hey- if the flannel fits…

Oh, one more thing. “Ordinary” totally includes vampires, werewolves, zombies, witches, shapeshifters, aliens and more!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on October 19, 2021
Another solid effort from Scott Burtness. It's in the same style as the excellent Monsters in the Midwest series (if you haven't read it, check out Wisconsin Vamp, Northwoods Wolfman and Undead Cheesehead) but probably turns the weirdness up a notch. Full of wacky otherworldly, supernatural characters and a protagonist whose just the right side of sleazy, lazy and slightly obnoxious but still sympathetic. August Shade is a post relationship property recovery specialist. If your ex won't give back your Van Halen T-Shirt or Simpson's mug, he's the guy you call. Except he gets a call to repossess an item that could just bring about the end of the world, from a client he cannot refuse on pain of death. As usual, the author resolves this situation with bags of humour and fantastical action sequences. Recommended.
