Spade and Marlowe never took a case like this! I'm Sam Horowitz. My wife Brandy and I are private eyes - and belly-up broke. That's why we agreed to trace Martin Whitlock, a hotshot banker who'd skipped town with over two million dollars in laundered drug money. Not our usual case, but even filthy mob lucre pays bills.
Whitlock's trail led from a posh mansion to a hick burg

I tried this book on whim and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it: an entertaining and somewhat unusual combination of American detective story and science fiction. The sf side of it felt more familiar to me: I read sf, and have read sf of approximately this kind before, but I don't normally read American detective stories.

The main characters are likeable enough, although their behaviour is somewhat implausible at times. The plot is frankly too complicated for me to follow, but I got the gist o
An interesting detective story that starts out in the 80s and ends up in deep in science fiction. Took a long time until the premise for the trilogy was revealed, but the detective story was engaging enough to more than compensate.
I hate that so many of Jack Chalker's books are now out of print. My in-laws got me this from a library book sale and I was never able to find any more of the GOD inc books.
This is a fun start to one of the lightest alternate reality series. Not to heavy, but light romance, adventure and mystery.
A fun read. Second time through, but it's been a few years and I still enjoyed the metaphysical playing.

Has the distinction of being the only Chalker series I didn't dislike to only be read once.
Interesting idea. A private eye couple get trapped in a miniuniverse while on a case..
