Martin Scott: Thraxas

In the enchanted city of Turai, the royal family is corrupt, the politicans can be bought, and the civic guards have better things to do than guarding. Thraxas may look unprepossessing and overweight, and more interested in pursuit of his next beer than pursuit of justice, but if you're in trouble in Turai, this portly private eye is probably your only hope. Join Thraxas as he's hired by a Princess on a case which leads him from the sewers of Turai right up to the Imperial Palace. Never a man to turn his back on a client (or an extra meal), Thraxas, aided by Makri, an axe-wielding young barmaid with a touch of Orcish blood, fights his way through the dark and magical streets of Turai.
