Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

Beloved, bumbling Detective Dirk Gently returns in this standalone novel—in trade paperback for the first time—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 an explosion goes off at the passenger check-in desk at London’s Heathrow Airport, the unexplainable event is deemed an act of God. For private investigator Dirk Gently, it’s his job to find out which god would do such a strange thing. In the meantime, one of his clients is murdered and his battle with the cleaning lady over his unbelievably filthy refrigerator comes to a standoff. Is it all connected? Or is this just another stretch of coincidences in the life of off-kilter super-sleuth Dirk Gently?

The follow-up to Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul is an unforgettable novel of inimitable wit, humor, and limitless imagination.
