Before he died, Felix Castor's fellow exorcist John Gittings made several calls asking for help, and if Castor had answered them, John might still be alive. So when a smooth-talking lawyer comes out of nowhere to claim the remains, Castor owes it to John's unhappy ghost and even more unhappy widow to help out.
Mike Carey writes paranormal mystery like a ninja throws shurikens. The themes in this book are dark and disturbing. Carey balances this novel with his patented dark humor. Carey's writing skills are on a level not matched by many authors of any genre. They only thing that would be better is more Felix Castor novels.
