Barking by Tom Holt, a very amusing tale of vampires, werewolves, zombies, unicorns and ... oh, lawyers. Duncan is poached from his boring law firm by a rival firm owned by his old school friend Luke Ferris, who just happens to be a werewolf, and wants Duncan to be one of his pack. Meanwhile Duncan's ex-wife, who is far more successful in the legal profession than he is, is turned into a vampire by her bosses and seems dead set on killing him. Oh, and then there's the shapeshifting unicorn with an army of bureaucratic zombies... and the only way Duncan can defeat it is to balance its accounts, which would be okay if he was any good at maths... In a world where supernatural horrors lurk round every corner, the only truly scary beings are the lawyers, in this slightly surreal and very sharp, very British comedy. I'll definitely be reading more of Mr Holt's books.
