The Rain-Soaked Bride




Spooks meets The X-Files with a generous helping of Le Carré, and a dash of Stephen King.

HOW DO YOU STOP AN ASSASSIN THAT CAN’T BE KILLED?

Toby Greene is part of The Clown Service, a mostly forgotten branch of British Intelligence tasked with fighting paranormal threats.

However, the Rain-Soaked Bride is no ordinary assassin. Relentless, inexorable and part of a larger game, merely stopping this impossible killer may notbe enough to save the day…

The Clown Service is fun and rips along like thefinest episode of the old Avengers series’ The Independenton Sunday

About the author

Guy Adams

Guy Adams lives in Spain, surrounded by rescue animals. Some of them are his family.

Having spent over ten years working as a professional actor and comedian, eventually he decided he’d quite like to eat regularly, so switched careers and became a full-time writer. Nobody said he was clever. Against all odds he managed to stay busy and since then he has written over twenty books.

Praise for The Rain-Soaked Bride

there is much in this novel to entice us to take our sleeping bag to the nearest bookshop doorstep and queue early for Book 3

The Bookbag

In a way, we wish Adams had started writing these thirty years ago so there would be a rich vein of stories for the new fan to discover. As it is, we must be content with two very well written and funny books. At least there’s a third on the way, though it’s a shame we have to wait for it.

Starburst magazine

Several writers are now mining a very British style of urban magic, some more convincingly than others. For me, The Rain-Soaked Bride confirms Guy Adams position as the market leader... a thoroughly entertaining sequel, and well worth adding to any urban fantasy collection.

This is a great example of why you should stick with a series for at least two books. The first book always has to spend time setting everything up but the second book can really show you what an author is capable of (although it can go the other way, too, of course). I thoroughly enjoyed The Rain-Soaked Bride and hope there are many more books to come in this series.
