About the Book

Detective Miles Jensen is called to the lawless town of Santa Mondega to investigate a spate of murders. This would all be quite ordinary in those rough streets, except that Jensen is the Chief Detective of Supernatural Investigations.
The breakneck plot centres around a mysterious blue stone – 'The Eye of the Moon' – and the men (and women) who all want to get their hands on it: a mass murderer with a drink problem, a hit man who thinks he's Elvis, and a pair of monks among them. Add in the local crime baron, an amnesiac woman who's just emerged from a five-year coma, a gypsy fortune-teller and a hapless hotel porter, and the plot thickens fast. Most importantly, how do all these people come to be linked to the strange book with no name? The anonymous, ancient book that no one seems to have survived reading?
The Book With No Name is a fast-paced, cinematic page-turner shot through with black humour, which will hold you rapt from its intriguing opening to the dramatic climax. There's only one way to find out what happens when you read the book with no name…

Reviews

  • 'This particular Anonymous has decided to take a fistful of drugs and gone on a literary genre-bender... punchy and witty... reading this mad book feels like riding one of those bikes with square wheels... a slightly strange experience but a lot of fun', The Daily Sport
  • 'Possibly drug-induced lunacy of a book - 4 stars', Zoo magazine
  • 'This caused quite a stir in its original self-published form on the internet, but now you can hide behind the settee to read it. Make sure you keep the big light on.', Manchester Evening News
