Summary

Summary

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


Old ghosts are coming back to haunt Felix.


Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Felix 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 hell....These 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. The only question is: how much? 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 Gwilliam and the Anathema.


Oh joy....

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A treat . . . Genre-bending at its best. Booklist (starred review) on Vicious Circle
"An imaginative spin on the hard-boiled detective . . . mixes horror and humor in a way that spells good omens for future Castor novels. Entertainment Weekly on The Devil You Know
Like Humphrey Bogart meets John Constantine, Felix Castor makes for an enjoyably, untrustworthy guide through the undead-filled streets of London. . . engaging and vivacious. SFX on The Naming of the Beasts
Felix offers a darkly droll take on the circumstances of his world, which is just as familiar, intricate, and morally tangled as our own. Entertainment Weekly on Vicious Circle
The Devil You Know is a spectacular novel, one of the best supernatural thrillers I've read in years. Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author
Every bit as good as Jim Butcher. Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Dead Men's Boots
Witty, sardonic . . . irresistible. Kirkus (starred review) on Dead Men's Boots
The Felix Castor novels are splashed with color and texture, their characters are larger than life (or death), and the stories are, well . . . out of this world. Castor is a remarkably believable character... A wholly engaging blend of the detective and fantasy genres. Booklist on Dead Men's Boots
The author has mastered the challenge of incorporating the paranormal into a normal urban setting, and his refusal to pull punches makes this a harder hitting genre entry than many others. Publishers Weekly
