Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot...step aside. Here to save the day--or at least the universe--is Dirk Gently, holistic super sleuth. Created by Douglas Adams, best-selling author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently is a universe-class detective in rare form.

Refusing to become bogged down by simple details such as fingerprints and alibis, Dirk Gently takes on the challenges of a world facing total destruction at every turn: the trauma of a truly filthy refrigerator, the secrets of telekinesis, and the attacks of an angry eagle. He comes out holding the key to the meaning of life, but can he make it fit the lock? Find the answer to the meaning of this question in this first ever collection of two bestselling Dirk Gently novels. --front flap
