Publisher Description

Author of The Girl With All the Gifts Mike Carey presents the third book in his hip supernatural thriller series featuring freelance exorcist Felix Castor.

You might think that helping a friend’s widow to stop a lawyer from stealing her husband’s corpse would be the strangest thing on your to-do list. But life is rarely that simple for Felix Castor.

A brutal murder in the heart of London bears all the hallmarks of a long-dead American serial killer, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved. He’s also fighting a legal battle over the body—if not the soul—of his possessed friend, Rafi, and can’t shake the feeling that his three problems might be related.

With the help of the succubus Juliet and paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down an elevator shaft or rips his throat out.

Or not …

    " This guy has his craft down pat, gripping chapter endings, just enough hints to make you think you missed something, and all the strings pulled together at the end into a neat little bow. Felix just gets better and better "

    " This is book 3 of the Felix Castor exorcist series... Light, fun reading in an interesting, multi-faceted current day London. "

    " Even more than the story itself and the main character, I love how developed Juliet is and the shots we see of her relationship with Susan. It's easy to forget that Juliet was never human and, therefor, lives by her own code. It's interesting to see how that throws a monkey wrench into her work and relationship and how both Felix and Susan cope with it. Yeah, the plot was good as well. I would very much recommend this book. "

    " A book that is need a lot of patience to get through. It meanders hopelessly... "

    " Much better than the first two! Can't believe the difference. He must have either taken a class or gotten a better editor. "

    " Layered plot and nonstop action--and a wonderful performance from Michael Kramer. On to the next episode ... "

    " Twisted ending, as he's figuring it all out, but another great one! I love Juliet, I think she should have her own series. ;) "

    " It was pretty good. Dragged on for some parts. Got a little grotesque, but tied in very well. "

    - JM, 12/20/2013
  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Number three in the Felix Castor series. This is very gritty urban fantasy, set in, and around, London. The story tends to meander at first, but still stays gripping and surprising. "

    - Lshapiro, 12/1/2013
  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Nothing like starting in the middle of a series, but now I *have* to read the earlier books. "

    " It was hard to get through this one- it took most of the book to get going and it was confusing- I almost just stopped. My boyfriend told me to finish it and I'm really glad I did- one of the best series I've read in a REALLY long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " A pretty good book, though it did slow down a bit in the middle. I'd like that there seems to be a semi-steady pace of action to keep your attention. "

    " Another excellent book in the Felix Castor series. If you are a fan of urban supernatural/paranormal fiction, like the Dresden novels, you'd be doing yourself a favor by checking out this series. "

    " Another Gritty and Dark Felix Castor novel, I do love how the characters chased down the clues in this one, and at times was seriously worried about how the characters were gonna manage to get out of things alive. Excellent addition to the series. "

    - Richard, 5/26/2011
  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " I tried reading one of those Dresden Files books to which this series is so often compared, and it was just silly. Why isn't this guy more well-known? I'm guessing it is because he is relentlessly British. "

    - Matt, 5/2/2011
  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5

    " This book was just too weird for me--it had to do with demons and people who die and possess the bodies of living individuals. "

    - Kriscrowe, 3/29/2011
  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Thankfully not a Dresden clone. Okay, similarities abound. He's an exorcist. There's magic, seldomly used. Werewolves & ghosts exist. But it's not just another noir book, honest. "

    " Felix fights immortal clique of killers who take over people's bodies, with Juliet (succubus) help Really good read, reminds me of a more serious Wizard Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher). "

    " Good, spooky, dark. Very dark. 4.5 stars, a lil too life sucks, then u die, then it sucks some more. But that's just me, I need a few more rays of hope in my books. "

    " Felix Castor has not lost his edge, in this there is the return of all your favorite characters from the series, with the same schemes and back alley deals that rule the subculture that is the Undead Society. Dude, you find yourself a fan of the undead, this is the detective fiction for you! "
