Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sequel to Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. A passenger check-in desk at London's Heathrow Airport goes up in a ball of flame and Dirk Gently becomes very inquisitive.

Review:

"Following a sudden explosion at London's Heathrow Airport (Terminal Two), in which the only major casualties are quite a bit of luggage and an airline ticket agent (who is transformed into a Coke machine), Dirk Gently rouses himself from a ragged slumber to investigate the cause of this event, which has been resolutely termed 'An Act of God' by the media. With his characteristically zany wit, Douglas Adams thus sends his detective-hero on an other-worldly adventure, where Gently encounters several miffed Norse gods and more than a few grumpy eagles. The result is yet another hilarious, if (as always) slightly surreal science fiction-detective novel for this very talented author." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

About the Author

Douglas Adams (1952–2001) is a legend of imaginative fiction, having ushered in the advent of comedic science fiction with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The book developed into a full series of five novels, all of which were vastly successful. The Hitchhiker series, along with his two Dirk Gently novels, have helped cement Adams as one of the most successful and beloved authors in science fiction, having sold over 15 million books.
