About The Man in the Dark
The devilishly good sequel to Hellcorp!
The Devil’s back – and he’s STILL not had a holiday. There’s another mystery to solve – a woman kidnapped by terrorists and the world trying to find her. While he hates doing God’s bidding, the Devil can’t resist trying to put one over on Him.
But nothing is EVER that simple. While the Devil helps the London cops crack the case, there’s trouble in the Underworld. And two of humanity’s greatest backstabbers – Brutus and Cassius – are sharpening their knives with an eye on stealing his crown. It’s a race against time to find the girl, be the bad guy and maybe – just maybe – stop the apocalypse.
Jonathan Whitelaw’s thrilling sequel published September 2019.
And just look at these reviews!!
“Fantastically imaginative – Jonathan Whitelaw is a terrific writer.” – Jo Spain – bestselling author of The Confession
“Whitelaw puts the Devil in his proper place – not the worst villain around by a large margin – in his Swiftian satires. Delirious, diabolical and delightful”. – Anthony O’Neill – Author of The Devil Upstairs and The Dark Side
“It’s rare to come across something that feels completely fresh, but Jonathan Whitelaw has cracked the case with his crime-fighting Devil, who breaks down the barriers between genres as well as much else besides. In ‘The Man in the Dark’, the caper novel has come bang up to date with a Satanic twist and some surprisingly topical political backstabbers. A lot of devilish fun is in store for readers.” – Stephen Booth – Gold Dagger finalist and award-winning UK crime writer
“Jonathan Whitelaw and his pal the devil have staked a claim to their own particular stretch of no-man’s land at the conjunction of crime, horror and comedy. They’ve set up shop there and a lot of people are going to enjoy what they’re selling.” – Robert J. Harris
“Darkly comic, deviously plotted and lots of fun.” – Camero Johnston – British Fantasy Awards 2019 Nominee
