Mike Carey Event

Just a reminder that Mike Carey will be my guest tomorrow to discuss his forthcoming Felix Castor series release Dead Men's Boots (July 23).

"Dead Men's Boots" is the third entry in the critically acclaimed supernatural noir series featuring wisecracking, hardboiled exorcist Felix Castor.

Publishers Weekly: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 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 Fix to prevent the body's exhumation. Meanwhile, a woman asks Fix 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.
