Overview

Meet Garrett, P.I. He’s a hardboiled human detective who stands out in a crowd of elves, trolls, and other otherworldly denizens in the magical city of TunFaire. Garrett For Hire is “fantasy noir at its best" (Library Journal), collecting three novels from Glen Cook’s classic urban fantasy series.
 
Deadly Quicksilver Lies

A rich woman hires Garrett to find her missing daughter…or to act as her hitman. In TunFaire, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference, leaving him no choice but to sift through the sex, intrigue, and murder to uncover the truth behind this case…

Petty Pewter Gods

With TunFaire real estate at a premium and prayer palaces at a minimum, the big gods on the block hold a contest: find the “key” to the one temple still available for worship. And when two rival pantheons try to hire Garrett to find it on their behalf, he finds himself facing the wrath of gods…

Faded Steel Heat


Riots between humans and non-humans have turned TunFaire into a war zone. And when a powerful gang of “human rightists” drag Garrett into the fray, he defends himself with a circle of friends no one would wish on their worst enemy…

    I'm the first to write a review for this?!  Holy cow, what is wrong with people these days?  This is, hands down, one of the best series going!  It's a delightful mix of gumshoe detective, spell slinging sorcery, science fiction, and who knows how many other genres all rolled into one.  Garrett is a detective in a world filled with dwarves, vampires, wizards, trolls, kings and police.  Cook, as usual, spins a great yarn in this world combining humor and intrigue seamlessly.  the characters are great....you know what?  You get the idea.  Go find the first book in this series and get hooked on it like so many others have!  you will NOT regret it.
