What Happens in Valdar Stays in Valdar
From infernal depths where lost souls are resurrected as hell-spawned devils; where creatures from the other side of the veil separating the earthly from the unearthly are conjured into existence; where beings from an ancient land whose borders cross into other dimensions slip through to our world ... the adventures of Dorgo the Dowser pit him against sentient shadows, duplicitous women, unscrupulous men, a criminal underworld of humans and semi-humans, malevolent puppets, strange beasts that time forgot, and beings from another world--not to mention zombies, killer fauns, vengeful vampires, raging werewolves, and the most unique pair of jewels you've ever heard of.
Armed with a unique dowsing rod that can detect the ectoplasmic residue of any supernatural presence or demonic entity, and sense the vestiges of magical power used in the commission of crimes, Dorgo walks in the shadows of a world where life is cheap and souls are always up for sale.
Magic, monsters, mystery, murder and mayhem: all Hell can break loose in Valdar in just one night. And it usually does.
Winner of the 2017 Golden Book Award for Best Fantasy.
"Bonadonna balances the human and the grimness in such a way that one never becomes suffocated. Instead, the humor and wit make the characters seem more real, as some of the characters, including Dorgo, use the humor to deal with the darkness they confront."
