DESCRIPTION

Catacombs of Terror! is a noir crime thriller set in Bath, England, in which private investigator Martin Valpolicella receives a tip that he will soon be framed for a future murder— that of his former lover – one that is set to take place in the catacombs buried beneath the city. Can he save the girl, and himself? A drug-fueled escapade takes place in the seedy subterranean of the countryside better known for hot springs and Jane Austen.

-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Wonderfully wacky fiction … .Donwood is a nimble and impish writer, taking his story to the edge of absurdity … but never letting it slip away completely. There’s an element of real danger here, lurking beneath the wordplay and quirky dialogue, and there’s also a rather touching—if wickedly convoluted—love story. Just a whole lot of fun.”
Booklist

“A barn-burning, page-turner from the depths of the secret worlds of hellish evil…”
