Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

by Douglas Adams (Heinemann, 1987)

Adams_Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

Rushed ending aside, this is a consummate piece of genre creation. Adams crafts a supernatural SF detective story with gorgeous (often subtle) pieces of interconnectedness, Doctor Who rehash and zany bits of faux-throwaway, all brought together by the late-appearing protagonist. Improbably brilliant.
