"What would Kurt Russell do?" Oxford police detective Arthur Wallace asks himself that question a lot. Because Arthur is no hero. He's a good cop, but prefers that action and heroics remain on the screen, safely performed by professionals. But then, secretive government agency MI12 comes calling, hoping to recruit Arthur in their struggle against the tentacled horrors from another dimension known as the Progeny. But Arthur is NO HERO! Can an everyman stand against sanity-ripping cosmic horrors?
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Arthur Wallace is a British police detective who stumbles into a monster infestation being fought by MI37, a tiny secret branch of the government that he joins. Surrounded by eccentric agents and researchers, Arthur wades gamely into the unknown, armed only with his police training and his all-purpose mantra "What Would Kurt Russell do?" Trying to protect reality on one hand, and a co-worker's innocent young half-Other daughters on the other, forced to cope with undead mad mechanical monks and the inhuman, unimaginably powerful Dreamers who control reality, Agent Wallace and MI37 have their work cut out for them. Wood creates vivid, intensely human characters and his perfect sense of timing keeps the book bounding along at a quick pace. A funny, dark, rip-roaring adventure with a lot of heart, highly recommended for urban fantasy and light science fiction readers alike. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
