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.

5.0 The Devil You Know...
This is a reread for me, huge fan of the Castor novels so the next little while will be loads of fun while I revisit that world. They are brilliant. So this is less a review and more a "read them - read them all!"

4.0 The Devil You Know by Mike Carey (Felix Castor, #1)
If you like your Urban Fantasy far more on the Urban Noir side than the Fantasy, a less than clear black/white dichotomy in your moralities, and some really sparkling writing, then you totally won't go wrong with this one. Putting book 2 immediately on my queue at the library. My (lazy!) review of...
