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.
