Author of The Girl With All the Gifts Mike Carey presents the second book in his hip supernatural thriller series featuring freelance exorcist Felix Castor.
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...

This series begins with "The Devil You Know." "Vicious Circle" is the second book. Mike Carey is more known for his contributions to the longest running comic series in the world--"Hellblazer," which Constantine is allegedly based off of, sharing little more than a protagonist of the same name--and another multiple Eisner award winning comic series "Lucifer." The latter was purely written by Mike Carey and is quite exemplary. Definitely worth the effort to read. Same goes for the Felix Castor series and his runs on Hellblazer.

Written by a contributor/creator of the movie "Constantine" this series begins with "Vicious Circle" and is one of my favorites. Takes place in London with an entire world created with creepy, violent and mythical creatures. Amazing writing and unpredicatable twists. Highly recommended!

I love Carey's moral musings in the midst of insane, impossible action
