ReviewFelix Castor is a bit of a bastard. The sarcastic exorcist tends to rub everyone up the wrong way at the best of time.

Now he's in the frame for the murder of an old acquaintane on a squalid London estate that seems on the boiling point of violence. Is it demon possession that is driving everyone insane or is it sopmething else. To clear himself and banish the demon he will have to delve into his past and confront his own demons with the help of his usual entourage (Nicky the undead researcher, Juliet the succubus and Rafi his friend with the Demonic passenger) and some old enemies and family.

It's a world wind tour of the seedier side of London packed full of action, but it really pays off some of the ongoing plots from the previous books and ends with some shocking revelations that will have a huge impact on Felix's view of the world and the plot of the next book.

It's a hell of a good book.

SummaryOld ghosts of different kinds come back to haunt Fix, in the fourth gripping Felix Castor novel. Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Castor far more trouble than he'd anticipated. Childhood memories, family traumas, sins old and new, and a council estate that was meant to be a modern utopia until it turned into something like hell ...these are just some of the sticks life uses to beat Felix Castor with as things go from bad to worse for London's favourite freelance exorcist. See, Castor's stepped over the line this time, and he knows he'll have to pay; the only question is: how much? Not the best of times, then, for an unwelcome confrontation with his holier-than-thou brother, Matthew. And just when he thinks things can't possibly get any worse, along comes Father Gwillam and the Anathemata. Oh joy ...
