J.W. Wells seemed to be a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter's salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar management team. Paul thought he was getting the hang of it (particularly when he fell head over heels for his strangely alluring colleague Sophie), but death is never far away when you work at J.W. Wells, unlike the stapler - that's always going AWOL. Our love-struck hero is about to discover that custard is definitely in the eye of the beholder. And that it really stings.
Tom Holt's exceedingly comic fantasies are populated with evil goblins, annoying sprites, and people like us. However, it's not always possible to tell the difference.

"Uniquely twisted … cracking gags." (Rob Grant, The Guardian)
"Frantically wacky and wilfully confusing…. gratifyingly clever and very amusing." (Mail on Sunday)
"Frothy, fast and funny." ( cotland on Sunday)
Another totally off the wall story with a serious undertone.
I found it amusing rather than outright comical and the reader was on top form.
It was probably just a tad too long.
"Another winner from Tom Holt"
Since reading a couple of Tom Holt's books I discovered Audible and have been enjoying Ray Sawyer's readings. He brings the story and characters in Earth, Air, Fire and Custard to life.
The audible version of a real page turner.
