Fairy tales are warnings. Legend is history. Monsters are real.
Paranormal detective Laslo Kane learned the truth the hard way. He’s had enough of the supernatural trying to kill him, but his latest job offer could provide him with a way out. A desperate investor has come to him for help investigating the murder of his business partner, and the money he is offering could change Laslo’s life forever.
It quickly becomes apparent that the killing is just one of several and that they are all linked. Laslo must follow the trail, even though he knows exactly where it ends: the mob.
Can Laslo survive and claim his fee, or will earning a living be the death of him?

“Laslo,” he said, standing and holding out his hand.
I took it.
“How strange, that’s my name too,” I said.
“I was greeting you, Mr Kane,” he said. “My name is Darius Targar.”
This book introduces you to paranormal detective Laslo Kane and his cases in the 1920s; prohibition being in full bloom. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With Fallen on Good Times, Rewan Tremethick has created an unconventional combination of a paranormal crime series with a humorous touch in the 1920s. Fallen on Good Times is the promising start of a series. You can’t help getting to like Laslo more and more as the story develops. He is quite a character, he made me shake my head, hold my breath, urge him on – you can see I was drawn into the story. It is a fast and entertaining read. This is for you if you like paranormal crime and a character you don’t easily forget. 😉
Laslo Kane is addictive! 😀
