    Things have been going pretty badly for Theo Bernstein. An unfortunate accident at work has lost him his job (and his work involved a Very Very Large Hadron Collider, so he's unlikely to get it back). His wife has left him. And he doesn't have any money. Before Theo has time to fully appreciate the pointlessness of his own miserable existence, news arrives that his good friend, a renowned physicist and Nobel laureate, has died. By leaving the apparently worthless contents of his safety deposit box to Theo, however, the professor has set him on a quest of epic proportions.

    I really enjoy Tom Holt's work. This book is fun except that the repeated and missing bits made it less enjoyable than it should have been. If you are just starting out with Tom Holt I'd suggest the Portable Door trilogy. Hopefully Audible will fix the issue with this book and make more of Tom Holt's novels available.

    Throughout history - from the bone-crushing age of antiquity to the sack-tearing modern era - there have been larger-than-life ass-kickers with a natural talent for unleashing their epic bloodlust on anyone who crossed them. They built empires, smashed armies, and ravaged civilizations for wealth, glory, and ultimate supremacy. Sometimes villains, sometimes heroes, sometimes criminally insane, they had one thing in common: They were all Badass!

    Story

    I thought the title was funny at first but didn't expect that it would carry through to the book by the insertion, every other word, of kickass, badass or asskicker. I could only get through the first 20 minutes before giving up. A terrible book that "reads" like a History Channel documentary as written by a 12 year old that thinks war is "cool".
