Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An enjoyable first in what will undoubtedly be a great series. Toby Greene is a not very good spy who’s being reassigned from MI6 after an abysmally failed mission and finds himself seconded to the really secret bit of the secret service – protecting Britain from the paranormal. This isn’t a new genre and it will be fascinating to see as the series develops how Adams makes his world and adventures different from other established series but Greene and his delightfully Le Carre-esque boss are wonderful characters and the plot gripping

Reviews

The Clown Service is fun and rips along like the finest episode of the old Avengers series The Independent on Sunday I just couldn't put it down ... highly recommended FantasyBookReview.co.uk

The Clown Service is a great beginning to what could become a classic series. Guy Adams has all his pieces in place, and ably demonstrates what he can do with them. If the dark gods of publishing -- and his audience -- so decree. ... one of my top three reads of the year

About the Author

Guy Adams lives in Spain surrounded by rescue animals. Some of them are his family. He isn't a spy - but he is a boy, so naturally he's always dreamed of being one. Having spent over ten years working as a professional actor and comedian, eventually he decided he'd quite like to eat regularly, so switched careers and became a full-time writer. Nobody said he was clever. Against all odds he managed to stay busy and since then he has written over twenty books.
