Duane Swierczynski – 1st mystery
PointBlank, 2005- Hardcover
Del Farmer is a detective with a difference. He solves crimes by collecting souls and keeping them in the Brain Hotel within him. While he is trying to track down and destroy The Association, one of his souls, Brad, demands Del find the killer of Brad's wife first. But Del has the most trouble when trying to solve a crime becomes a struggle for control from within.
This is a book that is different, fun, and unusual. I found having a little trouble keeping track of the characters at times, but enjoyed the writing, mix of characters and unique concept behind it all. A very enjoyable read.
