Author of The Girl With All the Gifts Mike Carey presents the third book in his hip supernatural thriller series featuring freelance exorcist Felix Castor.
You might think that helping a friend's widow to stop a lawyer from stealing her husband's corpse would be the strangest thing on your To Do list. But life is rarely that simple for Felix Castor.
A brutal murder in the heart of London bears all the hallmarks of a long-dead American serial killer, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved. He's also fighting a legal battle over the body - if not the soul - of his possessed friend, Rafi, and can't shake the feeling that his three problems might be related.
With the help of the succubus Juliet and paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down an elevator shaft or rips his throat out.

"The Devil You Know is a spectacular novel, one of the best supernatural thrillers I've read in years."--Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author, on The Devil You Know "Fast-paced . . . riveting . . . everything a paranormal thriller fan could want."--MonstersandCritics.com "The Felix Castor novels are splashed with color and texture, their characters are larger than life (or death), and the stories are, well . . . out of this world. Castor is a remarkably believable character... A wholly engaging blend of the detective and fantasy genres."--Booklist "Witty, sardonic . . . irresistible . . . leaves the readers breathless."--Kirkus (starred review) "Every bit as good as Jim Butcher, Carey hits his stride."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Carey transcends his comic roots in this quirky, dark and imaginative tale that compels reader to keep turning pages long after they should have gotten to sleep." --Kirkus (starred review) on The Devil You Know "An imaginative spin on the hard-boiled detective . . . mixes horror and humor in a way that spells good omens for future Castor novels." --Entertainment Weekly on The Devil You Know "A treat . . . Castor follows up his excellent debut with this even better sequel . . . Genre-bending at its best."--Booklist (starred review) on Vicious Circle
