Overview

A series far ahead of its time, now back in print

Anyone else would have learned by now: when trouble comes knocking, don't open the door. But there's a reason why Garrett's still in the P.I. business after all these years-he's not one to learn his lessons. Maybe that's why he lets himself get roped into being a bodyguard for Kip Prose, an obnoxious kid being threatened by creatures that can't quite be described. But before Kip Prose has a chance to explain what he's done to get...

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Put Philip Marlowe in a world peopled by not only humans but also creatures drawn from myth, magic, and zoology, and the result is the story of ex-Marine Garrett, a private investigator piecing together answers to perplexing problems and frequently doing the right thing. In a world with no apparent technology and magicians in positions of power, Garrett tries to stay abreast of what goes on. He has working associates, including Playmate; the bird, Goddam Parrot; and the Dead Man, with whom he communicates telepathically and from whom he learns the thoughts of others. Garrett is asked to bodyguard a young boy who has an inventor's genius and strange acquaintances who seem to be elves—some whom he thinks are friends and some who are after the others. There are many odd characters in TunFaire, and Garrett knows them all—good, bad, powerful, and weak, including the authorities. Garrett is a reckless ladies' man, and the women in his life are all bombshells, some quite influential. His newest female companion is a ratwoman—not human but with ambitions and clearly sharper than most people. Garrett narrates with twists and turns that amaze and amuse, in between beers, magic, fights, unconsciousness (resulting from all of the previous) and unexpected appearances and disappearances. Naturally, the right things get done for most characters and problems are resolved. This second Garrett book in TunFaire with its unique creatures and lifestyle is told with all the narrative style of a classic P.I. romp to create an enjoyable blend of mystery, science fiction, and fantasy. VOYA CODES: 3Q 4P S A/YA (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12;Adult and Young Adult). 2002, Roc, 364p,

Library Journal
When a longtime friend asks Garret to act as a bodyguard for a bright but eccentrically unpleasant child named Kip Prose, the hard-boiled private investigator reluctantly agrees, not suspecting that doing so will lead to the kidnapping of his charge. The arrival of a number of mysterious individuals possessed of disc-shaped flying crafts and alien sorceries only adds to the complications of the case, bringing out the best and the worst in the city of Tun-Faire's most cynical and successful detective. The tenth installment of the "Files of Garrett, P. I." fantasy-detective series by the author of the Black Company novels continues Cook's homage to John D. MacDonald, Raymond Chandler, and the other creators of likable, laconic men of good will and better reflexes. Fantasy noir at its best, this novel belongs in most libraries, particularly those where Cook has a following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Another great Garrett novel

    Glen Cook adds another satisfying romp to his Garrett Files. Angry Lead Skies has everything you've come to expect from Garrett, action, red-heads, sex, and Mr. Big. If you enjoy mystery novels, Garrett is for you. He's much like Magnum P.I. in a fantasy world. Cook lets you into the seemy underworld of TunFaire. Thoroughly fun.

    Very highly recommened

    Glen Cook's Garrett P.I. series is fun reading. Fast paced, with twists and turns to keep you reading and wanting more. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy his imaginative writting. It is why I have purchased all off the Garrett P.I. series. I can only hope Glen wrote run out of ideas for more stories of Garrett and The Mr. Dead Bones, the parrot Mr. Big and all the otber wonderful characters in this series.
