Felix Castor is a freelance exorcist, and London is his stamping 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. While trying to back out of this ill-conceived career, Castor accepts a seemingly simple ghost-hunting case at a museum in the shadowy heart of London--just to pay the bills, you understand. But 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. That's OK: Castor knows how to deal with the dead. It's the living who piss him off...

About the Author:

M. R. Carey has been making up stories for most of his life. His novel The Girl With All the Gifts was a USA Today bestseller and is a major motion picture based on his BAFTA-nominated screenplay. Under the name Mike Carey he has written for both DC and Marvel, including critically acclaimed runs on X-Men and Fantastic Four, Marvel's flagship superhero titles. His creator-owned books regularly appear in the New York Times bestseller list. He also has several previous novels, two radio plays, and a number of TV and movie screenplays to his credit.

From AudioFile:

In Felix Castors 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 hes 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.
