"So for a long time – years now, really – I've had this growing suspicion that everything was, well, everything was just wrong..."
Jason Kane – author, adventurer, hero and inveterately polysyllabic hyperbolist. Now join him on his most exciting adventure yet!
He's going to Hell and back on an impossible quest to stop a man with the powers of a god. Along the way there's monsters and explosions and unseemly contretemps in the odd posh restaurant.
The battle will be hard and require every last iota of Jason's famous cunning. What can possibly go wrong?
