Who says so?
This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
David's new friend Luke appears immediately whenever David strikes a match. Luke seems to have some extraordinary friends and relations and some very dark secrets. When David enters into a bargain with the mysterious one-eyed Mr Wedding, life gets very hot indeed!
