Just another normal day at the office, really
The smart-aleck narrator of this sassy crime caper is an agent who uses so many aliases for his work in the information underground that his real name is never certain. When he’s nearly killed by someone wielding a stolen moon rock bolted to the chain that bound Joan of Arc to the stake, he has to puzzle out which of the numerous secret societies he works for wants him dead.

Though the large cast of characters and subplots within subplots sometimes makes things confusing, Robinson (Undead on Arrival) keeps the action fast and the banter between characters light enough to carry the story over its occasional rough spots.
