Meet Don Drake. He's a demon-summoning hit man who 's badly in debt. He doesn't like his job. He'd rather have a drink and stay away from murder and the supernatural, but he'll have no peace before he's cleared his debt. So Drake takes on one last kill job - and things only get worse for him when he discovers his victim was just a kid. Suddenly, Drake's on everyone's bad list. His only friends are an archdemon trapped inside an ancient artefact, and Trixie, who smokes too much and happens to be as close to a fallen angel as you can get before you're Lucifer himself. And unfortunately for Drake, Lucifer's around too. And he's mad as hell. If Drake's going to find redemption, he's going to have to fight Peter McLean's debut is the first in a dark, funny urban fantasy series that pits a very British antihero against universal evil.

He grew up in the Norwich alternative scene, alternating dingy nightclubs with studying martial arts and practical magic. He works in corporate data centre outsourcing for a major American multinational company. He has a black belt in Taoist Wudang Kung Fu and practices Chaos magic. Drake is his first novel.
