Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Robert Rankin is a master of comic fantasy. This is book four in his Japanese Devil Fish Girl series featuring detective Cameron Bell and his educated monkey assistant Darwin in a steampunk Victorian world and those new to the series might enjoy starting with The Japanese Devil Fish Girl and Other Unnatural Attractions. Witty and funny, this book is narrated by Darwin as he and Bell must continue to fight Martians and solve mysteries, but to say anymore would give away how clever and inventive this series really is.

If you like Robert Rankin you might also like to read books by Samit Basu, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett.
