'Archangel' by British SF-novelist-turned-horror-writer Garry D. Kilworth is a sequel to 'Angel', a police procedural set in San Francisco. I hadn’t read the first one but it doesn’t matter that much, as the book stands alone.

I’ve enjoyed some of Kilworth’s SF works – but this one didn’t work for me on any level.

The plot is very thin; the religious tone preachy; the characters not at all engaging; the writing is loose in spots; and there is far too much unnecessary violence and just down right yuckiness. I could well have done without the detailed descriptions of the effects of the plagues of frogs and cockroaches.

I’d give it a miss if I were you. ( )
