Publisher's Summary

"Monsters" said Vince Martinelli. "There are monsters on the rig, Dave."

Dave Hooper has the hangover from hell, a demonic ex-wife and the claws of the tax office sinking into him. So the last thing he needs is an explosion at the off-shore oil rig where he works.

But this is no ordinary industrial accident, and despite the news reports, Dave knows that terrorists aren't to blame for the disaster. He knows because he has killed one of the things responsible.

When he wakes up in a hospital bed guarded by Navy SEALs, he realises he hasn't been on a bad acid trip. It all really happened. Yet his shock is cut short by a startling self-discovery; his contact with the creature has transformed the overweight, balding safety manager into something else entirely. A goddamned superhero. Then he learns the attack on the rig is only the first.

    "Narrator"

    Old mate has a lovely speaking voice but this was not a good choice for this series. I couldn't finish the first chapter and I love the books.

    "Antihero sort of"

    Somewhere between Hellboy and Tor most of it I have heard from other stories before but this was an interesting way of putting multiple other.
