Reminiscent of the edgy, offbeat humor of Chris Moore and Matt Ruff, the first entry in a whimsical, fast-paced supernatural series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Sandman Slim novelsA??a dark and humorous story involving a doomsday gizmo, a horde of baddies determined to possess its power, and a clever thief who must steal it back . . . again and again.
22000 B.C. A beautiful, ambitious angel stands on a mountaintop, surveying the world and its little inhabitants below. He smiles because soon, the last of humanity who survived the great flood will meet its end, too. And he should know. HeA??s going to play a big part in it. Our angel usually doesnA??t get to do field work, and if he does well, heA??s certain heA??ll get a big promotion.
And now itA??s time . . . .
The angel reaches into his pocket for the instrument of humanityA??s doom. Must be in the other pocket. Then he frantically begins to pat himself down. Dejected, he realizes he has lost the object. Looking over the Earth at all that could have been, the majestic angel utters a single word.
2015. A thief named CoopA??a specialist in purloining magic objectsA??steals and delivers a small box to the mysterious client who engaged his services. Coop doesnA??t know that his latest job could be the end of himA??and the rest of the world. Suddenly he finds himself in the company of The Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isnA??t just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him.
ItA??s a doomsday device. They think . . .
And suddenly, everyone is out to get it.

"The Everything Box is a mystical artifact of great power, lost by a minor angel many millennia ago. Fortunately, this audiobook has narrator Oliver Wyman, an Everything Box in his own right. In 2015, Coop, a thief who specializes in stealing magical objects, is kicked loose early from prison on the condition that he steal the box for a collector. But Coop gets picked up by the Department of Peculiar Science, an agency dedicated to the paranormal, whose members pressure him to steal the box back to keep his freedom. Besides the DPS, there are four other groups that have their own nefarious reasons for wanting the box. With an impressive mix of dialects, accents, and timbres, Wyman brings to life a diverse variety of characters, including a zombie. The result is a rollicking audio caper packed with bizarre creatures. D.E.M. 2017 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
