THE DEVIL'S DETECTIVE by Simon Kurt Unsworth, Doubleday

Thomas Fool’s place of residence is Hell, literally. This novel is set in Hell, a place no one really wants to be or visit. Even though I loved the theme of learning one perspective regarding an inside look at what happens in Hell, I could not connect with the characters. The only scene I liked was the Angels from Heaven visiting for a short time, which was predictable with somewhat humorous dialogue.

The idea of someone committing murder in Hell is a little out of the box but interesting. I am not sure what genre this novel could be placed: mystery, crime drama, or horror. Therefore, I recommend to mystery, crime drama, and horror book lovers who like to read fictional Heaven and Hell themed novels.

I received this book from Doubleday Publishers through the Net Galley reviewer program in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
