Description

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, is a much-loved cult classic, that has spawned radio dramas, television, theatre and comic book adaptations across the globe.

What do a dead cat, a computer whiz-kid, an Electric Monk who believes the world is pink, quantum mechanics, a Chronologist over two hundred years old, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (poet), and pizza have in common?

Apparently not much; until Dirk Gently, self-styled private investigator, sets out to prove the fundamental interconnectedness of all things by solving a mysterious murder, assisting a mysterious professor, unravelling a mysterious mystery, and eating a lot of pizza – not to mention saving the entire human race from extinction along the way (at no extra charge).

To find out more, read this book (better still, buy it then read it) – or contact Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

‘A thumping good detective-ghost-horror-who dunnit-time travel-romantic-musical-comedy-epic’ – Douglas Adams.

Continue this surreal series with The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul and the unfinished The Salmon of Doubt.

Publisher Review

An astonishing comic writer -- Neil Gaiman Rich and endlessly entertaining -- Stephen Mangan A pleasure to read * New York Times * Few recent writers have had such an infectious prose style as Adams. With his fondness for paradox, his galactic perspective on things and his wonderful way with meaningful nonsense his are the books which have launched a trillion quips -- Robert McFarlane
