Review: Glen Cook book Dread Brass Shadows
Glen Cook book Dread Brass Shadows
By use of a magic book one of the men in the books turns himself into a beautiful woman. Later he is killed while female and slowly begins to change back to male form. When he is found he's half and half.

This book is part of an excellent series of hard-boiled detective pastiches. It's one of the middling books, not as good as the best. Porbably gets a 2, although only becasue the better ones should get a 3. The TG is minimal.

The tone of this story is quite funny. Basically, try to imagine a hard-boiled Daishell Hammett detective, some hard-living flatfoot trying to buck authority and cut corners-- living in a Terry Pratchett novel. You sort of get the idea. The TG scene is minimal--about three sentences worth. The man-as-woman does show up in his disguise but doesn't reveal who (s)he is; later the body is found dead and half-transformed. That's about it. (My review is longer than the scene.) But the book is fun. Give it a read, but don't expect too much out of the TG.

Fun book. The transposition of the classic detective character into a world of ogres, elves, dwarves, magicians and the like is enjoyable. The madcap story line is a treat as the hero deals with an inexplicable surplus of beautiful redheads. We only find out later that one of them used to be a man, and the discovery only comes well after that particular redhead has departed from the scene and is found dead. A good read, though.
