I picked this book up on the spur of the moment, at the second hand shelve at local mini supermarket. Didn't know anything about it, or it's author..... I'm now really really enjoying it and found it captivating from the offset. It freaked me out to discover subsequently that the author is actually JK Rowling working under a pseudonym! Really had my 15 year old daughter laughing as she's devoured all the Harry Potter, both the paper forms and DVDs....now she's trying to get me to read Potter!! I don't want to say much to give away the plot, except that the main character is an ex-soldier with a prosthesis, somewhat charismatic chap, working as a private investigator, looking for a missing author. Needless to say there are lots of twists and turns, both funny and macabre, and an interesting, and not overly far fetched set of characters. It was a really good find!
