The Devil You Know

By Mike Carey (Mass Market, 2008)
Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, and London is his stamping ground.

  • "Ingeniously multilayered.  Fix Castor's wisecracking cleverness in the face of weird nemeses makes him the perfect hardboiled hero for a new supernatural noir series." (Publishers Weekly *starred review*).

  • "Carey transcends his comic roots in this quirky, dark and imaginitive tale that compels reader to keep turning pages long after they should have gotten to sleep." (Kirkus *starred review*).
