Barking ~ By Tom Holt
Product Description From Amazon.co.uk
Monsters are roaming the streets of London. Of course, some monsters are scarier than others: Unicorns? No bother. Vampires? Big deal. Werewolves? Ho hum. Lawyers? ...Aaargh! Duncan's boss doesn't think that he's cut out to be a lawyer. He isn't a pack animal. He lacks the killer instinct. But when his best friend from school barges his way back into Duncan's life, with a full supporting cast of lawyers, ex-wives, zombies and snow-white unicorns, it's not long before things become distinctly unsettling. Hairy, even.

I really really enjoyed this book, it was laugh out loud in places. This is the first Tom Holt novel I have read and I will certainly be reading more in the future. The authors humour is very dry, which appeals immensely to me and his writing style is very easy and fast to read. The plot itself lures you into the story very quickly and you find yourself immersed in a world of corporate law and werewolves, which is a totally hilarious combination.
All in all I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 and have to say it's a highly entertaining and amusing read.
