I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The author has never asked me or tried to influence me for a positive review, nor have I promised one.
The Plot was fast paced with lots of interesting twists.
Laslo Kane, Darius Targar, Kitty, Misty Joe, Rita and Adamar Poottellis
Fallen on Good Times is a whirlwind debut novel by Rewan Tremethick it’s a book that dances to its own tune. It took me on a weaving path through a unique and invigorating tale of monsters, gangsters and heroes.It was very different from the paranormal book I expected. I enjoyed the way the author introduced the characters, vampires, werewolves, zombies, and ghosts as fun and entertaining characters.
Laslo Kane is a Private Detective down on his luck, in Pilgrim’s Wane in 1920 he broke and alone, his girlfriend Kitty has left him because she feels that he is losing his mind, He is not a very successful detective in the regular sense and takes on almost any job. All his jobs are from a stream of desperate wackos with nowhere else to turn and stories so ludicrous no one else would give them a second’s thought. And there is a special twist with Laslo, he finds he is more successful when investigating crimes with a supernatural twist, Werewolves, vampires, Spooks, Zombies and other weired creatures, than crimes involving regular humans.
But Laslo’s luck is about to change. We meet his first rich client, Darius Targar, a desperate investor who asks him to investigate the murder of his business partner, and a bank robbery. But the bank robbers don’t steal money – they put money into his account. He wants Laslo to find out who are they, and, of course, why would they do this? The fee Darius offers him is a lot of money which would sort out most of Laslo’s problems. Laslo get’s to work with the help of his journalist friend Rita. It quickly becomes apparent that the killing is just one of several and that they are all linked. He finds out that the local crime lord and mob is involved. Can Laslo take on the mob or does he even want to? Is the money worth it/ Then the mob makes him the proverbial ‘offer he can’t refuse”. Can Laslo survive and claim his fee, or will earning a living be the death of him?
Laslo fights Zombies, Vampires, Ghosts, werewolves and even the boss of the mob as he unearths the secret of why the mob is paying off his client. he finds that the mob is bringing in urns with a potion to awaken the dead. Laslo find the warehouse where the urns are stored an breaks in and destroys them. He fights and kills the mob boss, Adamar Potrellis and his werewolf. He is killed by Adamar but is resurrected again due to the urn with the potion in it that he had taken from the warehouse before it was destroyed. he thought that he had finally won and he was now rich, but things don’t work out so easy for him. His apartment is bombed with the money in the that the mob had paid him But ll ends well for Laslo as he still has the money from his client and Kitty is giving him another chance.
