We are keen to emphasise that the Felix Castor stories sit more in the crime/thriller camp, than fantasy or supernatural, even though Castor has a sideline in exorcism. This is more detective fiction with a slight supernatural twist…and very good it is too. This is Castor’s fourth outing and they just keep getting better and better.

If you like Mike Carey you might also like to read books by Simon R Green and Phil Rickman.

Synopsis

Thicker Than Water by Mike Carey

Old 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 . . .

Reviews

'Fast, fun and furious, worth it for the final joke alone' Guardian

'Witty, deadpan and shudderingly noir . . . Carey drives this thriller like Chandler at the wheel of a runaway hearse’ Daily Express

'Entertaining, well-paced, intelligently plotted and full of memorable characters' The Times
