Old Tin Sorrows - Garrett, P.I., Bk 4
Author: Glen Cook
A corps of corpses was what it seemed Garrett had committed himself to find when Blake Peters turned up to reclaim some overdue favors.

This one is much darker than the first three novels in this series. Rather than crusading about the countryside, Garrett is committed to a classic haunted mansion where he is retained--by a former fellow Marine who he owed, big time--to find who, or what is killing retired General Stantnor.

As in his previous adventures, Garrett soon finds himself in way over his head.

I found the atmosphere more somber in this novel. Garrett seems to trudge along with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Even the lighter moments seem to be toned down. I found this story to be closer to the horror genre than the dark fantasy. But it still held my interest as it showed even a successful case doesn't have to end happily.

Enjoyable read

I've read the first five Garrett, P.I. books, and of those this is my favorite. I love all the Garrett books for the noir style, but this one is better because the story is tight and focused, and the characters are strange, interesting, and haunting (literally and figuratively).
