Kindle Daily Deal: Jackaby.

William Ritter's Jackaby is $1.99 today:

Like Dirk Gently, he barrels around town wearing a TERRIBLE hat, a big muffler and a huge coat, and despite the Holmesian attributes (and the gore), the whole book has the sort of warmth and sly humor that I associate with Douglas Adams. Much of that feeling can be chalked up to Jackaby’s home life and to some of the bureaucracy he runs into in dealing with the police, but I don’t want to spoil the details for you.
