Dead Men's Boots

Rating
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. . .

Reviews

"Carey transcends his comic roots in this quirky, dark and imaginative tale that compels reader to keep turning pages long after they should have gotten to sleep." --Kirkus (starred review) on The Devil You Know "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 "A treat . . . Castor follows up his excellent debut with this even better sequel . . . Genre-bending at its best."--Booklist (starred review) 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, on The Devil You Know "Fast-paced . . . riveting . . . everything a paranormal thriller fan could want."--MonstersandCritics.com "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 "Witty, sardonic . . . irresistible . . . leaves the readers breathless."--Kirkus (starred review) "Every bit as good as Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
