From the publishers of Terry Pratchett and Good Omens comes a smart, knowing, outrageously fun (and occasionally rather rude) supernatural romp by an award-winning comic and hugely successful indy author . . .
Born in Limerick and raised in Dublin, C K (Caimh) McDonnell is a former stand-up comedian and TV writer. He performed all around the world, had several well-received Edinburgh shows and supported acts such as Sarah Millican on tour before hanging up his clowning shoes to concentrate on writing. He has also written for numerous TV shows and been nominated for a Kid's TV BAFTA. His debut novel, A Man With One of Those Faces - a comic crime novel - was published in 2016 and spawned The Dublin Trilogy books and the spin-off McGarry Stateside series. They have been Amazon bestsellers on both sides of the Atlantic. C. K. McDonnell lives in Manchester. To find out more, visit whitehairedirishman.com
A filmic romp with great characters, a jet-propelled plot, and a
winning premise. -- Eric Brown * GUARDIAN *
I tore through The Stranger Times. Like an entertaining collision between the worlds of Mick Herron and Charlie Stross, it's a novel that proves ancient eldritch horror is no match for old-school journalism. -- CHRISTOPHER BROOKMYRE, bestselling author of Fallen Angel
There are weird happenings in Manchester; good job the drunk and dysfunctional journalists of The Stranger Times, a newspaper dedicated to paranormal and the unexplained, are on hand . . . terrific, easygoing fun. -- Robert Millen * THE TIMES *
I loved this . . . great premise - great story - great characters . . . hugely enjoyable. -- JODI TAYLOR, bestselling author of The Chronicles of St Mary's series
A cracker . . . brace yourself for murder, monsters, mesmerism - and merriment. Wonderfully wacky. * SAGA *
