    One thought on “The Markhat Files”

    1. I really enjoyed these stories. It took a few pages to engage, but I love Tuttle's humor, his turn of phrase, his MC. I can't wait to find more. If you like gumshoes in a paranormal world, don't look further than these books. Super fun.

    2. In spite of occasional, jarring editing/proofreading oversights, I was enchanted. Love this series! (Now I'm afraid Markhat having a girlfriend will turn me off to it. Damn!)

    3. Markhat is a Finder in the post war city of Rennit. He takes cases involving ghosts and trolls and sometimes dead people. Somehow the books aren't silly. They are a lot of fun.

    4. I love all the Markhat books - their humour and their humanity and the the understanding about what happens when a war is over to the soldiers who survive to come home again. The books are based around the adventures of Markhat a Private Investigator, his friends and the events and Gods he confronts and befriends.
