Publisher's Summary

When murdered sinners fail to show up in hell, it's up to Salim Ghadafar, an atheist warrior forced to solve problems for the goddess of death, to track down the missing souls. In order to do so, Salim will need to descend into the anarchic city of Kaer Maga, following a trail that ranges from hell's iron cities to the gates of heaven itself. Along the way he'll be aided by a host of otherworldly creatures, a streetwise teenager, and two warriors of the mysterious Iridian Fold. But when the missing souls are the scum of the Earth and the victims devils themselves, can anyone really be trusted?

A Celestial Crime

Salim, an atheist priest serving the goddess of death (oxymoron much?), must investigate an accused crime being committed by angels. When suddenly souls belonging to Hell are no longer reaching their Judgement, Salim must literally go to Hell and back to solve it.

But how could such righteous creatures; formed out of pure-hearted souls and infused with Heaven's divine values with honestly built into their very bones be responsible for such heinous acts? Are the devils in their usual way using, lying, and scheming their way to use Salim for their own wants and needs?

I found the book to be very descriptive and interesting in the complex way a mere mortal had to solve a conflict between Heaven and Hell using intelligence, charisma, and a bit of wisdom. This wasn't the most philosophical book I've come across, but was certainly more than what I expected.

High fantasy for those who don't like high fantasy

I don't like fantasy. I can just about get through The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but high fantasy usually leaves me cold. James L. Sutter's Pathfinder Tales, however, are engaging, complex and fun. I love the characterisation, the action and the drama of the higher multiverse of gods and demons intruding on the mortal world. The atheist hero, Salim the Priest Hunter, is complex, simultaneously tragic and heroic, a man who has lived long enough to see the humour in the games the gods play.

Ray Porter's narration is pretty much a masterclass in how it should be done. I love the way he brings characters both human and non-human to life, giving each a unique voice. Highly recommended!
