Jaunty magician Jack, agent in the U.K.'s occult secret service, goes undercover in the witty sequel to 2008's Hunter's Moon. His goal is to crush the Eagle Society, neo-Nazis intent on busting Hitler out of hell and into a handsome new Aryan body. Jack assumes the role of successful banker John Dennis and grapples with Eagle Society members like "lunatic" Sir James Gold as well as annoying MI5 mole Miss Penny Marsh, herself undercover as cultist Alexandra Gentle. Amiable Jack despises some of the violent chores he must undertake in the fight against the forces of darkness, but he soldiers on bravely. Devereux's quirky blend of horror and deadpan humor bristles with pop culture references, giving Tarantino-style profanity and gore a twist of Robert Rankin tomfoolery and Ian Fleming derring-do.
