Holmes&Watson in their late 50s are battling with women stealing sea-devils and far more horrifying entities.

Third and final book in the Cthulhu Casebooks. I still have two novellas/short stories to look forward to though.

Second book in Lovegrove's Sherlock Holmes series.

Lovegrove has written another dark Holmes & Watson story. There are monstrous creatures, evil people and my favourite detectives getting into a pickle.

🌟🌟 First of all, I‘m not a fan of hard boiled fiction and second of all if you‘re going to create a Lovecraftian story, that genre doesn‘t mean you just use words like old gods and tentacles and think that‘s what you got.

Lovecraft created an atmosphere so thick you could hardly breathe. It was next level!!! It‘s so much more but than just it‘s lore. This was a fail! Other authors have done way better.

🎧 1920‘s NYC. Tommy couldn‘t carry a tune in a bucket but he transports items across town using a guitar case.

One day it‘s an occult book & suddenly the book has taken off on a Lovecraft/occult tangent.

Racism, police brutality & what happens when you are forced to become the monster …

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reggie Yayyyy, glad you liked it. I really don‘t do audio because the first audiobook I ever did had a horrible narrator. But with the past 3 I‘ve been pretty lucky. 2mo

This is my first Lavalle and shame on me. He‘s really good. In 1920s Harlem, 20yo Charles Timothy Tester keeps going out of his neighborhood with his guitar case and no music talent doing errands for folks of the occult/arcane. It‘s a cosmic story on a grand scale that wraps itself around a person who is pushed into becoming a monster. So effing good!

Megabooks Ive apparently already stacked this! 😁 great review! 2mo
Reggie @Megabooks thanks, Meg! This is one of those books that‘s only like 153 but felt like 500 in the best ways possible. 2mo
Twainy Stephen King recommendation AND Reggie! Interested. 2mo

I have a lot of favourite stories from this collection, but Dagon is definitely one that sticks out. My other favourites were The Outsider, Herbert West Reanimated, Cool Air and The Thing On The Doorstep.Whilst I had conflicted feelings I've decided I did enjoy them, they're just drawn out/ different to what I thought they would be. I'd reccomend for a spooky/ gothic collection of stories with dark atmospheres, perfect for gloomy rainy days!

It takes a monster to kill monsters in this novella about a private-eye, in a slightly strange but recognizable London, hired by a ten-year-old to kill the boy‘s stepfather. It‘s both that simple and anything but as working the case reveals even darker, more dangerous secrets. An entertaining read.
