Author of The Girl With All the Gifts Mike Carey presents the first book in his hip supernatural thriller series featuring freelance exorcist Felix Castor. Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, and London is his stomping ground. It may seem like a good ghostbuster can charge what he likes and enjoy a hell of a lifestyle, but there's a risk: sooner or later he's going to take on a spirit that's too strong for him. When Castor accepts a seemingly simple ghost-hunting case at a museum in the shadowy heart of London, what should have been a perfectly straightforward exorcism is rapidly turning into the "Who Can Kill Castor First" show, with demons and ghosts all keen to claim the big prize. But that's business as usual: Castor knows how to deal with the dead. It's the living who piss him off.

"In Felix Castor's world the risen dead are so common that exorcists advertise in the Yellow Pages. Only Castor has begun to question what happens to these returned spirits once he's dispatched them. Do he and the other ghost hunters have the right to play God with these souls? Author Mike Carey, known for his horror comics like "Hellblazer" and "Lucifer," adds a new dimension to an old story. Performer Michael Kramer delivers the required solemnity to the text and, when appropriate, a light touch of humor. More importantly, he makes listeners feel the anguish of the undead, in this case, a young woman compelled to haunt a museum. Compelling, scary, and ultimately rewarding. M.S.
