Synopsis

'Verve and charm in abundance' Andrew Caldecott, author of Rotherweird 'Sunder City [is] an evocative creation, it has echoes of Ankh-Morpork, but also a broken melancholy all of its own' SFX I'm Fetch Phillips, just like it says on the window. There are three things you should know before you hire me: 1. Sobriety costs extra. 2. My services are confidential. 3. I don't work for humans. It's nothing personal - I'm human myself. But after what happened, it's not the humans who need my help. I just want one real case. One chance to do something good. Because it's my fault the magic is never coming back. The Last Smile in Sunder City is the debut novel from actor Luke Arnold - known for his lead role in Black Sails. This contemporary fantasy introduces Fetch Phillips - a character destined to be loved by readers of Ben Aaronovitch, Jim Butcher and Terry Pratchett's Discworld.
