‘Dark and luminous, compelling and insidious, THE DEVIL'S DETECTIVE is a novel that transcends genre’ - Michael Marshall Smith
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? As more murders occur, Thomas finds himself drawn into the depths of hell.
