Private investigator Garrett has agreed to play bodyguard for a kid who is being threatened by creatures that defy description. But before Garrett can make heads or tails of the story, the kid is abducted-and the chase begins...
When a longtime friend asks Garret to act as a bodyguard for a bright but eccentrically unpleasant child named Kip Prose, the hard-boiled private investigator reluctantly agrees, not suspecting that doing so will lead to the kidnapping of his charge. The arrival of a number of mysterious individuals possessed of disc-shaped flying crafts and alien sorceries only adds to the complications of the case, bringing out the best and the worst in the city of Tun-Faire's most cynical and successful detective. The tenth installment of the "Files of Garrett, P. I." fantasy-detective series by the author of the Black Company novels continues Cook's homage to John D. MacDonald, Raymond Chandler, and the other creators of likable, laconic men of good will and better reflexes. Fantasy noir at its best, this novel belongs in most libraries, particularly those where Cook has a following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
