Book Review – Deep Pink

Sarah Hoyt’s newest work, Deep Pink, takes a sharp left turn into strange territory and entertains us as its main character tries to find his way back to the main road.

Like all Private Detectives, Seamus Lebanon [Leb] Magis has often been told to go to Hell. He just never thought he’d actually have to go.
But when an old client asks him to investigate why Death Metal bands are dressing in pink – with butterfly mustache clips – and singing about puppies and kittens in a bad imitation of K-pop bands, Leb knows there’s something foul in the realm of music.
When the something grows to include the woman he fell in love with in kindergarten and a missing six-year-old girl, Leb climbs into his battered Suburban and like a knight of old goes forth to do battles with the legions of Hell.
This is when things become insane…. Or perhaps in the interest of truth we should say more insane.

The work of a master storyteller, Deep Pink explores the adventures of a man who is offered a second chance, but has to fight to win it.  As always, Hoyt’s characters are engaging and entertaining.  The worlds Leb finds himself in are drawn in Technicolor, and I found myself chewing through this story just to find out what happens next.

This is a fast read, but it grabs you on page one and keeps hold until the last sentence.  I’m hoping Deep Pink is the beginning of a new line of stories from Sarah Hoyt.  If you enjoy light-hearted paranormal fiction, this one is for you.
