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 King's Cross 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 a lift shaft or rips his throat out. Or not. . .

    I liked this one better than the previous one, but I still don't like the women in here. I can understand Juliet, she isn't a woman after all, but... What the Hell, Pen?? Are you moron?? And I don't l...

    I really enjoy the mystery aspect of these books - the mix of mystery, ghosts, zombies, and demons is really fun. I also liked seeing more Juliet this book....

  • Dhuaine

    Third installment of Felix Castor series. The blurb advertises it as "three cases in which Castor gets hopelessly tangled even though he should know better". Not very promising... however, the reader ...

  • Danie Ware

    Three Felix Castor books down, and loving every one of them. Plotlines intriguing and perfectly woven, a marvellously droll sense of humour, and a particularly visual (and occasionally visceral) use o...
