Eccentric--bizarre--unquantifiable: these go without saying...Adams isn't particularly funny here, but he's often fun--and there's the built-in appeal of Dirk Gently II.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Beloved, bumbling Detective Dirk Gently returns in this standalone novel from Douglas Adams, the legendary author of one of the most beloved science fiction novels of all time, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

When a check-in desk at London’s Heathrow Airport disappears in a ball of orange flame, the event is said to be an act of God. But which god? wonders holistic detective Dirk Gently. And how is this connected to Dirk’s battle with his cleaning lady over his filthy refrigerator…or to the murder of his latest client? Or are these events just another stretch of coincidences in the life of the world’s most off-kilter private investigator?

Douglas Adams, “one of England’s top exporters of irreverence” (Chicago Tribune), continues the implausible adventures of supersleuth Dirk Gently in his quest to solve the mysteries of the universe.

Mr. Adams really loves his adverbs; in any standard paragraph the reader is likely to come across three or more...Also, the ending was a bit confusing and not entirely clear on why things happened. It left much to be desired.
