I just had to kick back for a little while and read a book that I¿ve been wanting to pick up for some time, but have been just to busy. Red Iron Nights by Glen Cook.For those of you who haven¿t had a chance to read Cook¿s Garrett P.I. novels yet, you really need to get going! Garrett is a classic P.I., always willing to slack off, get into a fight and go after the beautiful woman. The catch is he lives in a world full of sorcery, elves and all the stuff that dreams are made of.In this round Garrett has to help the Watch deal with a serial killer, who is of course subject to a curse. This makes for some twists and jumps before the Dead Man can get a handle on the situation and direct our buddies to the right path. Toss in the Mob and a conspiracy theorist and the book becomes a fun ride.Once again Cook offers up a good, light and fully enjoyable read.
