From Douglas Adams, the legendary author of one of the most beloved science fiction novels of all time, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, comes a wildly inventive novel of ghosts, time travel, and one detective’s mission to save humanity from extinction.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency:

We solve the whole crime
We find the whole person
Phone today for the whole solution to your problem
(Missing cats and messy divorces a specialty)

Douglas Adams once again boggles the mind with a completely unbelievable story of ghosts, time travel, eccentric computer geniuses, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the end of the world, and—of course—missing cats.

    " I actually expected this book to resemble a real detective novel. I also didn't expect ghosts in it. I thought time travel would be enough. It might be because what I got was so different from what I expected but I just thought that this book was a complete mess and even when Adams is at his best, his writing is pretty thin. "
