This was an entertaining story, although not one of Mr Herbert's best. It is actually a bit of an experiment and must be one of the first crime/horror mash-ups written. It does this a little clumsily in places and when the horror does appear it sort of comes out of nowhere. The narrator was clear and fine most of the time. All in all, this was plenty of fun and definitely worth a read but not spectacular.
