Title: Dead Men’s Boots
Author: Mike Carey
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 . . .
I bought this book about a year ago and put it away. I’ve finally gotten around to reading it. I’m not sure why I put it away. I like Carey’s style of writing. I like Felix Castor.
Although it doesn’t have the intensity of the other books in the series, I’m glad I picked it up again. I’m eager to see how the mysteries are how solved.
