The most lacking Garrett PI book I've read so far, with the worst plotline. Still a good yarn where the tough PI style is juxtaposed by the pre-industriel urban setting of a fantasy world filled with dragon lookalikes and magic. Garretts favourite girlfriend is stabbed on her way to visit him, launching him into a wild goosechase to find the one responsible for the attack. Underways he gets involved in a gangster fight of succession and a hunt for a magical relic that allows people to become someone else. ( )

Whew! The things I get me into!
Not for the first time I didn't have the foggiest notion what the hell I was doing. Or maybe it was the first time and it just hadn't ever stopped.

Book description
Everyone wants to find it—a treasure so rich it makes even a hard-boiled detective like Garrett nervous. It’s the legendary Book of Shadows, made of brass and holding secrets no mortal was ever meant to master—and Garrett must make sure no one ever has the chance to work its spells on an unsuspecting and unprotected world.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A trio of redheads and a treasure trove of sorcery plunge Garrett into the heart of a deadly hunt for power. The hilarious adventures of a human detective in a mixed-up fantasy world.
