“Snarky, pacy and hellishly fun. Don Drake is just the sort of hero, with just the sort of life, to make you feel good about yourself.”
– Francis Knight, author of the Rojan Dizon series
Shambolic demon-hunting hitman Don Drake is teetering on the edge of madness in this smart, witty urban fantasy novel.
File Under: Dark Fantasy [ Fallen So Far | Smacked Up | Devil Don’t Care | Hell or Heaven ]
The third book in the Burned Man series
Don Drake is living rough in a sink estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh, doing cheap spells for even cheaper customers while fending off the local lowlifes. Six months ago, Don fled from London to Glasgow to track down his old girlfriend Debbie the alchemist.
With the Burned Man gradually driving him mad, Don meets with an ancient and mysterious tramp-slash-magician, with disastrous consequences. Now his old accomplices must step in to save Don from himself, before he damns himself for good this time.

Praise and Reviews for the Burned Man series:
“McLean has crafted a refreshing urban fantasy, with a wonderfully flawed, foul-mouthed protagonist who, despite some dubious life choices, is not quite beyond redemption. Imagine Mal Reynolds had dabbled in the occult and this would have been the result. Drake features equally complex female characters, ensuring the Burned Man is one series I shall be certain to follow.”
– Susan Murray, author of The Waterborne Blade and Waterborne Exile
“Fug, this was good. The movement is non-stop and the characters, myriad. The author does a great job developing characters that reside in a fantastic world. I WANT MORE!”
– Koeur’s Book Reviews
