was a difficult read for me, but that’s not necessarily
a bad thing because I stuck with it anyway because the writing
is that compelling. The story is one that nightmares are made
of. The protagonist, Kat Murphy is a private detective who
wound up in Lost Angeles, a demon-filled city in Hell after
she mistakenly killed her lover and then shot and killed herself.
When Kat is offered a chance to atone for her sins and have
her Torments removed, she accepts and takes the case to find
a stolen box sought after by the city’s Chief Administrator.
As Kat works her way through pits even worse than she ever
imagined (and she thought she’d seen it all), she is
faced with choosing her own peace and saving the world above.
If you are looking for an exciting and clever thriller to
read this summer, and you’ve got a strong constitution
for frightful things and the gritty underbelly that walks
on the Earth, as well as in the Hell below us, you won’t
want to miss Michael Logan’s new book, “Hell’s
Detective” available this June from Crooked Lane Books!
Reviewers Notes: Language, violence
