Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Mike Carey's 3rd Felix Castor is better written than the first two. They characters introduced in this book are so nasty and cold blooded they fit perfectly into some of the contemporary business world.
Castor spends some time in the USA and has a less that great experience. Carey's does something in the books that is hard to imagine ever working in a film. That is a unique strength in any fiction and, in my opinion, is a bit dazzling. Felix Castor uses Music to connect with the dead and other supernatural creatures.
Carey makes this involving. He literally carries a tin whistle around with him think flute. Castor's ability to sense and connect and effect the supernatural is manifested in his music. He is not some carnival tent psychic with a glass ball. His tool, his music lets him extend into that realm and effect things.

His 'trade' is exorcist. Getting rid of those from 'the other side' that won't go home. And he tends to get involved with an odd assortment of characters, friends and situations and, sometimes, monsters. Mike Carey's Felix Castor books are not the same story over and over. Hope by the time I finish the next 2 Felix Castor books a 6th book is ready. Added to this there is a confidence in Carey's writing that suggests he is getting a rhythm of his own as he writes character and dialogue.
In this mystery, Castor is hired to exorcise the ghost of a fellow "spiritualist" who has "gone geist" - his restless spirit is destroying his old house and making life miserable for his widow. Concurrent with this plot, his colleague "Juliet" is seeking his professional assistance with a haunting in a church. The pacing of the story is a bit uneven, as Castor moves from place to place: I understand Carey is seeking to build tension, dropping red herrings and otherwise leading us through the investigative process. The interwoven plot lines that of polergeist John Gittings and that of the church is becoming a bit tried - I loved it the first time, thought it was clever the second time, but a third time it is becoming a bit worn.
Dead Men's Boots : A Felix Castor Novel, vol 3
Still, the resolution to the mysteries totally caught me off guard, and the climax of the story kept me up past my bedtime it was so exciting. Carey is clearly developing as a writer, and this installment is not without its problems. Nonetheless I tremendously enjoyed the story and will be back for more. One person found this helpful. As with his first two books in the series, this novel opens with Felix in a rough spot.

One of his fellow exorcists has died after unsuccessfully seeking Felix's help. Felix's friend Rafi, who has a demon trapped inside of him, is about to be kicked out of his care facility and turned over to a not-so friendly medical researcher. And finally, a woman wants him to prove that her husband isn't guilty of murder and that a long-dead serial killer is. This book takes place a few months or so after the events in his second novel "Vicious Circle. The key element of how Castor's universe differs from our own besides demons, ghosts, zombies, etc.
See a Problem?
Not everyone who dies returns, but many are, and no one knows why they are becoming more and more frequent. Unlike his first two novels, which jumped out of the gate and quickly grabbed your undivided attention, the first half of this one is not as tightly written and wanders a bit. It could be just me, but it felt like that Felix was just running from place to place without the tension appreciably building up.
However, about half-way through, everything started to come together, and then like the first two books in the series, the story became enthralling, and I had a tough time putting the book down at decent hours in order to go to bed. The overall writing is excellent, and the plot is outstanding, with no major logic holes. One thing I don't like, though, and it's more of a personal preference than a real problem, is that Mr Carey "over-writes" some scenes, and the book can occasionally feel a little ponderous as a result.
But that's really a small personal nit.
Dead Men's Boots
While I liked the first two novels a little bit better, this one is still a great read, particularly once you get into the second half of the book. The author makes plenty of wry observations and has some laugh-out loud humor generously sprinkled throughout the book. While you might be able to read this one without having read the first two novels, you really should read them in order, so as to better appreciate the characters and recurring parts of the story line.
