In this “irresistible mash-up of noir and gothic horror” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), a man fights to clear his name from a crime he hasn’t committed yet.

Private investigator Martin Valpolicella receives a tip that he will soon be framed for a future murder of his former lover, set to take place in the catacombs buried beneath the city of Bath, England. But can he save the girl, and himself? Catacombs of Terror! is a drug-fueled escapade about a dark world hidden beneath our own, and how one man can save himself from its dangers.

Review:

"This irresistible mash-up of noir and gothic horror from Donwood (Household Worms) defines the term 'cult classic.' This is a wild, shambolic ride, but its central idea--of a dark world just underneath our own--is as noir as it gets." --"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review

"Wonderfully wacky fiction.... Donwood is a nimble and impish writer, taking his story to the edge of absurdity...but never letting it slip away completely. There's an element of real danger here, lurking beneath the wordplay and quirky dialogue, and there's also a rather touching--if wickedly convoluted--love story. Just a whole lot of fun." --Booklist
