    Thomas Fool is an Information Man, an investigator tasked with cataloging and filing reports on the endless stream of violence and brutality that flows through Hell. His job holds no reward or satisfaction, because Hell has rules but no justice. Each new crime is stamped "Do Not Investigate" and dutifully filed away in the depths of the Bureaucracy. But when an important political delegation arrives and a human is found murdered in a horrific manner - extravagant even by Hell's standards - everything changes.

    Outstanding

    Entertaining story, superb narrator. Vivid, nuanced conceptual exploration of what Hell could be, and perhaps is?

    Welcome to hell...where skinless demons patrol the lakes, and the waves of limbo wash against the outer walls while the souls of the damned float on their surface, waiting to be collected. When an unidentified, brutalised body is discovered, the case is assigned to Thomas Fool, one of hell's detectives, known as Information Men. But how do you investigate a murder where death is commonplace, and everyone is guilty of something?

    Fantastic.

    Do I hate this book? Do I love it? Fool. Indecisive fool.
    I am unsure. I think I love it but love dies. So maybe I would stick to hating to love..Show More »

    Thomas Fool - the resilient investigator doomed to catalog hell's atrocities in Simon Kurt Unsworth's stunning debut, The Devil's Detective, is back. The man with no memory of who he was or what led to his damnation is now in command of the Information Office of Hell. This power has only inspired new deadly enemies like Mr. Tap, the cunning leader of a shadowy organization known as the Evidence. Fool alone has survived the wrath of both demon and angel, and now he faces his most thrilling and complex challenge.

    Narration!

    Who cares about the book? I'd listen just for the narration. Unsworth is a true actor.
