The Better Mousetrap (J. W. Wells & Co., #5) by Tom Holt

It touches all our lives; our triumphs and tragedies, our proudest achievements, our most traumatic disasters. Alloyed of love and fear, death and fire, and the inscrutable acts of the gods, insurance is indeed the force that binds the universe together. Hardly surprising, therefore, that Frank Carpenter, one of the foremost magical practitioners of our age, felt himself irresistibly drawn to it. Until, that is, he met Jane, a high-flying corporate heroine with an annoying habit of falling out of trees and getting killed. Repeatedly. Its not long before Frank and Jane find themselves face to face with the greatest enigma of our times: When is a door not a door? When its a mousetrap.

The main differences are that magic is present and so are magical creatures but apart from that, everything else is pretty much the same. Unfortunately, for the poor devils, it seems that most magical creatures dragons, trolls, giant spiders, werewolves, etc. This has led to the rise of the pest control companies that specialise in magical vermin removal. Things become interesting when Frank discovers that Emily is the victim of a Better Mousetrap. This is a magical device and something that is guaranteed to be fatal to the target. Frank, while unable to do magic, is equipped with a portable door that enables the user to travel from one place to another place and time.

Thank you! More humor with a British accent—from the prolific Holt, a sequel to The Portable Door and fourth in a series set in the same science-fantasy universe. A Portable Door is like a magical ace of trumps: Not only does it give the user access to anywhere, including past and future, but it also beats any other opposing magic. Young Frank Carpenter, despite a total lack of magical ability, inherited a Door from his parents they're not dead, but hiding in a private universe. Frank did have the advanced mathematical knowhow necessary to use the Door effectively, however, so he approached insurance mogul George Sprague and proposed that when George was faced with paying a large claim, Frank—for a modest ten percent—would simply go back in time and make the event not happen. The arrangement proves hugely profitable to both parties.
