Fifty Feet of Trouble by Justin Robinson
5 out of 5 gnomes
I adore this whole insane noir monster ruled world. Once again it’s great to see the story from the point of view of the only human private investigator left, Nick Moss.
This author is great at naming his characters especially if you like punny or funny names. One of my favorite names has to be the terrifying clown Reverend Bobo Gigglesworth. If you’re not already scared of clowns, you just might be after you read about this clown...
After seeing more of Nick’s secretary Ser, Serendipity Sargasso I want to know all about her. She is one interesting siren and seems to really care for Nick even though he’s a human.
The best new character has to be Gelatin Keyes. This pink all consuming blob is really more funny then he has a right to be. You’ll find yourself laughing just about every time he’s in a scene.
The problems and cases just keep piling up and the whole scope of the story gets even more epic with some truly gigantic monsters this go around. I love how all the pieces of the mystery fit together and just how many different monsters the story shows.
The twists are really well done and just when you think everything is solved and all hunky dory WAM one heck of a very very bad thing happens.
Expect the unexpected and a whole lot more when you read this awesome story.
