Every bit as good as the better-known Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride with his third hard-boiled supernatural thriller (after Vicious Circle). Felix Fix Castor, a London-based exorcist who uses music to fight evil spirits and other paranormal creatures, faces two major challenges. The burial of Fix's friend John Gittings is disrupted by a lawyer with a court order mandating that the corpse be cremated; Gittings's widow retains Felix to prevent the body's exhumation. Meanwhile, a woman asks Felix to clear her husband of rape and murder charges by proving that Myriam Seaforth Kale, a gangster who's been dead for 40 years, is actually responsible. While looking into how Kale has come back from the dead to resume killing people, Fix finds links to a larger threat from the dark side. Carey has a way with words (a character dresses like someone who'd taken The Matrix a little too seriously) as well as a gift for creating a plausible alternate reality.Visit Mike Carey's Website
Mike Carey Bio:
MIKE CAREY got into writing through comic books, where his horror/fantasy series Lucifer garnered numerous international awards and was nominated for five Eisners. From there he moved into novels and screenplays, while still maintaining a presence in the comics world (he is currently writing two of Marvel's flagship titles, X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four).
He lives in London, England, about as far as you can get from the centre of the city and still have access to the London Underground train network. His wife, Linda, writes fantasy for young readers under the pseudonym A.J.Lake. They have three children and an implausibly beautiful cat.
