“A gritty, grungy, funny, sweary noir thriller with added demons. Don Drake is a wonderful creation.” (Dave Hutchinson)
“Snarky, pacy and hellishly fun. Drake is just the sort of hero, with just the sort of life, to make you feel good about yourself. Dark and delightful, like a naughty treat, this is a rollicking story.” (Francis Knight)
We’re assuming that if you haven’t been introduced to Peter McLean’s dark, urban fantasy Drake – complete with black magic, demons and foul-mouthed protagonist – it’s because you have been living under a rock. Well fear not, because today if your lucky day.
On 1 August in UK and Canada, Bookbub are riding to the rescue with Drake available for 99p/$1.99.
Hitman Don Drake owes a gambling debt to a demon. Forced to carry out one more assassination to clear his debt, Don unwittingly kills an innocent child and brings the Furies of Greek myth down upon himself.
Rescued by an almost-fallen angel called Trixie, Don and his magical accomplice the Burned Man, an imprisoned archdemon, are forced to deal with Lucifer himself whilst battling a powerful evil magician.
Now Don must foil Lucifer’s plan to complete Trixie’s fall and save her soul whilst preventing the Burned Man from breaking free from captivity and wreaking havoc on the entire world.
