Publisher's Summary

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

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, but if you ask Castor, he'll tell you there's quite a bit of arrogance and reckless stupidity lining the streets as well.

He should know. There's only so many times you can play both sides against the middle and get away with it. Now, the inevitable moment of crisis has arrived, and it's left Castor with blood on his hands.

Castor drowns his guilt in cheap whiskey, while an innocent woman lies dead and her daughter comatose, his few remaining friends fear for their lives, and there's a demon loose on the streets. But not just any demon - this one rides shotgun on Castor's best friend's soul and can't be expelled without killing him.

Looks like Felix Castor's got some tough choices to make, because expel the demon he must - or all hell will break loose.

Critic Reviews

"Like Humphrey Bogart meets John Constantine, Felix Castor makes for an enjoyably, untrustworthy guide through the undead-filled streets of London, as painted by Mike Carey...huge verve and energy...engaging and vivacious." (SFX)

"Carey's unique and eminently readable style, with his excellent command of concise description and dialogue lends itself perfectly to the pacing of the book, one that we found ourselves wanting to re-read as soon as we finished it." (SciFi Now)

Excellent

Suspense, horror, investigation, pathos, and even romance--with just the right touch of humor--all very well written and delivered wonderfully by the narrator. A great addition to one of my favorite series.

I am so done with Felix Castor

Have you ever gone through an entire series just to see if a protagonist will either grow as a person or die from their own stupidity? I just did. Well written, good book, stupid protagonist.
