Felix Castor has reluctantly returned to exorcism after the case of the Bonnington Archive ghost convinced him that he really can do some good with his abilities (“good,” of course, being a relative term when dealing with the undead). But his friend, Rafi, is still possessed; the succubus Ajulutsikael (Juliet to her friends) still technically has a contract on him; and he’s still dirt poor. Doing some consulting for the local constabulary helps pay the bills, but Castor needs a big, private job to really fill the hole in his overdraft.

That’s what he needs. What he gets—good fortune and Castor not being on speaking terms—is a seemingly insignificant “missing ghost” case that inexorably drags him and his loved ones into the middle of a horrific plot to raise one of Hell’s fiercest demons. When Satanists, sacrifice farms, stolen spirits, and possessed churches all appear on the same police report, the name of Felix Castor can’t be too far behind.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Trisha | 4/14/2011

    " The second book in the series only gets better, with new plots that seem to find Felix and shake him down. You'll be on edge, along with Felix as he hunts down what's really going on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mary | 4/9/2011

    " Ok I'm hooked on this series. I love Fix. There wasn't much of Pen and Raffi in this one. They were talked about a lot but not really present much. I figured out the "bad guy" a lot quicker then Fix did. But I find that to be true of most of the books I read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lori | 3/10/2011

    " Great take on the ghosts living amongst us; however, the characters (beyond the main protagonist) are barely tolerable - perhaps on purpose - but still makes it a more difficult read. "

    " I love these books. I love Felix Castor. He's one of the best characters I've ever read. "
