Book synopsis (The back of the book says)

H. W. Wells seems a respectable establishment, but the company now paying Paul Carpenter' s salary is in fact a deeply sinister organisation with a mighty peculiar agenda. Since he graduated from office junior to clerk, he has wrestled with goblins, travelled hundreds of miles in the blink of an eye and spent hours doing dangerous office admin. Now, just when he thought he might be getting the hang of it he is transferred to the pest control department. This is otherwise known as slaying dragons, werewolves and other such monstrous creatures which Paul had, until recently, fondly believed didn' t exist. This isn' t the best time to discover that his company is involved in a long and bitter war against the Fey. However, there is a bright side. Sophie might have dumped him then left for Hollywood, but junior school sweetheart Melze is a wonderful compensation . . .

Ever been offered a promotion that seems too good to be true? You know - the sort they'd be insane to be offering to someone like you. The kind where you snap their arm off to accept, then wonder why all your long-serving colleagues look secretly relieved, as if they're off some strange and unpleasant hook ... It's the kind of trick that deeply sinister companies like J.W. Wells & Co. pull all the time. Especially with employees who are too busy mooning over the office intern to think about what they're getting into. And it's why, right about now, Paul Carpenter is wishing he'd paid much less attention to the gorgeous Melze, and rather more to a little bit of job description small-print referring to 'pest' control ...
A wickedly funny new comic fantasy novel featuring the further adventures of Paul Carpenter, hero of The Portable Door.

This book has also been translated to Polish, with the name "Śniło ci się".
