Publisher's Summary

Monsters are roaming the streets of London. Of course, some monsters are scarier than others: Unicorns? No bother. Vampires? Big deal. Werewolves? Ho hum. Lawyers? ... Aaargh! Duncan's boss doesn't think that he's cut out to be a lawyer. He isn't a pack animal. He lacks the killer instinct. But when his best friend from school barges his way back into Duncan's life, with a full supporting cast of lawyers, ex-wives, zombies and snow-white unicorns, it's not long before things become distinctly unsettling. Hairy, even.

Easy Bed Time Listening

If you're after a book with laugh out loud comedy then perhaps this isn't it. It's well written and read well but it lacks the real oomph that some of the other Tom Holt books offer. It's a great book to listen to as you're off to bed as it doesn't require too much attention as it's quite slow going.

The book does have it's moments and I did enjoy it. If you want a book about the supernatural with a dash of the mundane realities of life today then this is for you! But as I've already said, there are better Tom Holt books out there.

Barking

Werewolves, lawyers, vampires, zombies and a unicorn. Just another day at the office. If you’ve listened to Tom Holt before you’ll know what you’re getting into, it’s the real world with added fantasy elements and humour. This one is a little darker than other books by this author I’ve listened to. But it is still very good, with lots of humour, and very accurate and funny observations on dog (well wolf) behaviour, which any dog owners will recognise. I really enjoyed it, and it was excellently read by Ray Sawyer. Highly recommended.
