Section K by Timothy Carter

Timothy Carter brings the reader a comical and unique tale. Section K is the branch of the RCMP dedicated to all things paranormal and weird. It's two agents, Howard Plank and Johnny Tall are brilliant at what they do which would usually be a great thing. Unfortunately, about the only thing that Howard does well, is drink himself into a stupor and Johnny's only two talents seem to be getting the ladies into bed and being a complete jerk.

The section's only leads come from two main sources. A lonely old lady and a psychic who is constantly proven wrong, until now. It figures that the one time he predicts something perfectly, is the time when the end of the world is upon us.

The only thing standing between life as we know it and total destruction, is Section K. The agents have to try and solve the mystery of who is running around Canada stamping the number 666 onto people's foreheads, and why. This book is both funny and bizarre and had me laughing out loud more than a couple of times. It's another quick read at around 122 pages which is good since I didn't want to put it down.

This is my first book by this author but it won't be my last, I am sure.

Timothy Carter is an amazing writer. I was lucky enough to be able to hang out with him in Toronto, read drafts of his books and basically be amazed by his humour, creativity and style. I seriously hope he continues his line of books, as I for one, would love to own a whole collection.
