For enthusiasts of Jim Butcher and Kevin Hearne comes an action-packed new city fable sequence that includes a tricky, bleakly humorous, down-on-his success oil rig employee with an not likely future as a monster-slayer and savior of the planet.
“Monsters,” acknowledged Vince Martinelli. “There are monsters at the rig, Dave.”
Dave Hooper has a hangover from hell, a terrible ex-wife, and the fangs of the IRS deep in his facet. the very last thing he wishes is an explosion at paintings. a true explosion. On his off-shore oil rig.
But this can be no twist of fate, and regardless of the inside track stories, Dave is familiar with that terrorists aren’t responsible. He is familiar with simply because he killed one of many things responsible.
When he wakes up in a medical institution mattress guarded through army SEALs, he realizes this is often greater than only a undesirable acid journey. Yeah, Dave’s had a couple of. This journey is far weirder.
Killing a seven-foot-tall, tattooed demon has remodeled the obese, balding protection supervisor into anything else completely. An honest-to-A$%& monster-slayer.
