Darren Humphries

Here's a new, seasonal offering from Darren Humphries for St Patrick's Day.

The Man From U.N.D.E.A.D.'s St Patrick's Day Parade  The Man from U.N.D.E.A.D.'s St Patrick's Day Parade

My review -

This is another short, seasonal offering from Agent Ward, the man from UNDEAD.  He is dispatched by the agency to County Clare, Ireland, to look into the appearance of a banshee which is thought to have caused the death of an elderly lady .  His arrival at Ard na Mara, a top secret establishment, in an agency helicopter so put me in mind of the opening sequence of Father Ted and it set the scene for the usual clever, witty irony that characterises this series of stories.  Ward gets to grips with the case and finds out why Ireland's mythical creatures are all congregating here - and who is behind it all.

These stories are always a delight, always well written and always warm and gently funny.  I enjoy them a great deal.
