Fun, fast-paced, and light-hearted neo-pulp romp in an England with magic.

Think of this as if Helen Mirren's Prime Suspect series got shuffled together with Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and other odder magical touches.

Loads of fun to read and the character growth from the first book (No Hero) is organic and sensible.

Looking forward to Mr. Wood's next novel in this series! ( )

This is the rare instance where the second book in a series is as satisfying as the first. More good fun. ( )

"Another day. Another zombie T-Rex to put down. All part of the routine for Arthur Wallace and MI37--the British government department devoted to defending Britain from threats magical, supernatural, extraterrestrial, and generally odd. Except a zombie T-Rex is only the first of the problems about to trample, slavering and roaring, through Arthur's life. Before he can say, "but didn't I save the world yesterday?" a new co-director at MI37 is threatening his job, middle-aged Russian cyborg wizards are threatening his life, and his co-workers' are threatening his sanity. As Arthur struggles to unravel a plot to re-enact the Chernobyl disaster in England's capital, he must not only battle foreign wizards but also struggle to keep the trust of his team. Events spiral out of control, friendships fray, and loyalties are tested to their breaking point"--Author's website, http://jonathanwoodauthor.com/books.… (more)
