In the fourth gripping book in the highly acclaimed series Publishers Weekly calls "every bit as good as the better-known Jim Butcher," old ghosts of different kinds come back to haunt Felix Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Castor far more trouble than he'd anticipated. Childhood memories, family traumas, sins old and new, and a council estate that was meant to be a modern utopia until it turned into something like hellthese are just some of the sticks life uses to beat Felix Castor with as things go from bad to worse for London’s favorite freelance exorcist. See, Castor’s stepped over the line this time, and he knows he’ll have to pay; how much is the only question. Not the best of times, then, for an unwelcome confrontation with his holier-than-thou brother, Matthew, and just when he thinks things can't possibly get any worse, along comes Father Gwillam and the Anathemata. Oh joy.
Mike Carey is the acclaimed writer of the comics Hellblazer and Lucifer and the current writer on Marvel's X-Men: Legacy and Ultimate Fantastic Four. The first three novels in his Felix Castor series are The Devil You Know, Vicious Circle, and Dead Men's Boots.
"Witty, deadpan and shudderingly noir . . . Carey drives this thriller like Chandler at the wheel of a runaway hearse." Daily Express
