Garrett uncovers the dark side of the fantasy city TunFaire, where no one is to be trusted especially beautiful women. When a pack of gorgeous women knock on his door, Garrett knows it’s too good to be true. The leader of the group is Alyx Weider, the daughter of the largest brewer in town. Her father and friends are opening a new theater in TunFaire and the lovely ladies are there to persuade Garrett to help get rid of the paranormal parasites living in the new construction. Garrett agrees because after all, it means free beer and the company of these beautiful girls. What else could a man want? But Garrett doesn’t realize the drama he’s stepping into.

Glen Cook used to work the assembly line at a General Motors plant, writing in between helping to build cars as they came down the conveyor belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noire and Ghosts Not sure how Glen Cook thought up Garrett PI, but after 12 in 20 years I continue to get a smile on my face whenever I get one. Not the easiest books to describe but I'd place them in the fantasy dectective genre. What there isn't one? Well there should be and these would be at the top of the list. Cook in TunFaire has created a wonderful world of femme fatales, sorcery, elves, faires, witches, vampires, ghosts, rat people and other things that go bump in the night. Politics, business, religion and war all play a role in Garrett's struggles to keep a keg of Wieder's Special dark in the house and not have to work to hard. Highly recommend any of the 12 books in this series, lighter fantasy with a twist, well written and conceived. May Garrett and crew go on for another 12 adventures.
