URBAN FANTASY CRIME REVIEW: The Devil's Detective - Simon Kurt Unsworth

Release Date: 12/03/15
Publisher:  Del Rey


Welcome to hell...

.... where skinless demons patrol the lakes and the waves of Limbo wash against the outer walls, while the souls of the Damned float on their surface, waiting to be collected.

When an unidentified, brutalised body is discovered, the case is assigned to Thomas Fool, one of Hell's detectives, known as 'Information Men’. But how do you investigate a murder where death is commonplace and everyone is guilty of something?

A stunningly original blend of crime, horror and suspense, The Devil’s Detective is a bold new thriller that will shock and amaze.


A different type of detective story for a different type of setting and one that is not only complex but full of imaginative twists, chock a block with deceptions and backed all up with a principle character who goes from a man who doesn’t care to one who really wants to solve this mystery as it could be his ticket to redemption.

It’s definitely a novel type of book and definitely one that will more than have you glued as each clue is unveiled with aplomb alongside a principle character whose detective work has reasonable deductions, solid leads and of course by the titles end a story that will not only have entertained but given you something that goes to show that multi genre mixing can work extremely well.
