Felix Castor has reluctantly returned to exorcism after a successful case convinces him that he really can do some good with his abilities---"good," of course, being a relative term when dealing with the undead. His friend Rafi is still possessed, the succubus Ajulutsikael (Juliet to her friends) still technically has a contract on him, and he's still dirt poor.
Doing some consulting for the local cops helps pay the bills, but Castor needs a big private job to really fill the hole in his bank account. That's what he needs. What he gets is a seemingly insignificant "missing ghost" case that inexorably drags him and his loved ones into the middle of a horrific plot to raise one of hell's fiercest demons.
When satanists, stolen spirits, sacrifice farms, and haunted churches all appear on the same police report, the name Felix Castor can't be too far behind...

MIKE CAREY got into writing through comic books, where his horror/fantasy series Lucifer garnered numerous international awards and was nominated for five Eisners. From there he moved into novels and screenplays, while still maintaining a presence in the comics world (he is currently writing two of Marvel's flagship titles, X-Men and Ultimate Fantastic Four). His movie Frost Flowers, an erotic ghost story, is currently in production with Hadaly/Bluestar Pictures. He lives in London, England, about as far as you can get from the centre of the city and still have access to the London Underground train network. His wife, Linda, writes fantasy for young readers under the pseudonym A.J.Lake. They have three children and an implausibly beautiful cat.From AudioFile:
Writer Mike Carey, known to comic fans for his work on HELLBLAZER, brings the same kind of chilling writing to his novels. VICIOUS CIRCLE follows the career of freelance exorcist Felix Castor in a scary world in which the barrier between the living and the dead has thinned so much that the government is considering a dead person's "Bill of Rights." Narrator Michael Kramer, who established himself as the very British voice of Castor in THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, once again proves adept at translating the dangers and quandaries facing an exorcist who is wondering if he has the right to banish spirits to oblivion. Kramer meets the challenge of giving voice to the deadly erotic demon Juliet, a creature of irresistible sexual allure, by making her sound a bit like Faye Dunaway. It works.
