Felix "Fix" Castor, exorcist, has faced his share of challenges--but three back-to-back crises at once may be more than he can take.

First up is figuring out why a friend and fellow exorcist, spiraling down into madness, would kill himself... and then turn up to haunt his old home and colleagues. Second is untangling a legal mess regarding his demon-possessed friend, while third is investigating an improbable rape-murder.

From official release/information:

Product Description: You might think that helping a friend's widow to stop a lawyer from stealing her husband's corpse would be the strangest thing on your To Do list. But life is rarely that simple for Felix Castor.

A brutal murder in King's Cross bears all the hallmarks of a long-dead American serial killer, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved. He's also fighting a legal battle over the body - if not the soul - of his possessed friend, Rafi, and can't shake the feeling that his three problems might be related.

With the help of the succubus Juliet and paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down a lift shaft or rips his throat out.

Or not. . .
