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.
If only life were that simple.
A brutal murder in King's Cross bears all the hallmarks of an American serial killer supposedly 40 years dead, 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 he can't shake the feeling that his three problems are related. With the help of the succubus Juliet, paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, and a little judicious digging, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down an elevator shaft or rips his throat out. Or not.
"Every bit as good as the better-known Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride with his third hard-boiled supernatural thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

Another great book.
yes, the world is gritty and realistic. Everything is well thought out. The characters are well developed and you really care about what happens to them. There is enough mystery involved to keep you guessing.
The closest would be the Peter Grant series as both are very British and relatively low magic levels to the world.
I like Nikki Heath. you have to love a paranoid, conspiracy nut zombie.
This was a real page turner.
A always the author does keep to his own formula. The stories all start out slow with a couple of minor unrelated incidences that turn out to actually be related to the main story. You do have to be patient for the first part of the book but the payoff is more than worth it.

Mike Carey does it again!
