Overview

Remy Chandler, angel private investigator, is trying his damnedest to lead a normal life in a world on the verge of supernatural change. He’s found a new love—a woman his dog, Marlowe, approves of—and his best human friend is reluctantly coming to grips with how...unusual...Remy’s actions can be. And he’s finally reached a kind of peace between his true angelic nature and the human persona he created for himself so very long ago.

But that peace can’t last—Heaven and the Legions of the Fallen still stand on the brink of war. Then one of Heaven’s greatest generals is murdered, and it falls to Remy to discover who—or what—might be responsible for the death, which could trigger the final conflict...a conflict in which Earth will most certainly be the beachhead.
 
The deeper he digs, the further he goes into a dark world of demonic assassins, secret brothels, and things that are unsettling even to a being who has lived since time began. But it is not in his nature—angelic or human—to stop until he has found the killer, no matter the personal price....

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sniegoski continues to ramp up the stakes in the entertaining fifth hard-boiled adventure (after In the House of the Wicked) featuring private eye Remy Chandler, an angel living on Earth as a human. Thanks to previous events, most of the world is aware that there are supernatural occurrences afoot, but little has changed in everyday life. Remy is enjoying his new relationship with Linda, his first romance since the death of his wife, and repairing his friendship with police officer Steven Mulvehill. But when the angelic general Aszrus is murdered, Remy and his hilarious canine sidekick, Marlowe, are called into action once again. Clues lead to a man named Simeon; resurrected by a young Jesus Christ and doomed to never die, he bitterly envies the mortal humans who will someday die and meet God. Sniegoski throws in handy flashbacks to flesh out both the characters and the present-day mystery, and Remy’s encounter with a corrupt Pope is particularly gripping. There’s a mildly frustrating cliffhanger at the end of the book, but the story still feels complete and entertaining. Agent: Kate Schafer Testerman, kt literary. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
Praise for the Remy Chandler Novels 
“Inventive...a hard-boiled noir fantasy by turns funny, unsettling, and heartbreaking.”—Christopher Golden, Bestselling Author of Waking Nightmares
 
“Fast-moving, well-written, and wonderfully enchanting, this is one that fantasy readers won’t want to miss.”—Darque Reviews

“A fun, fast ride that takes advantage of a strong setting and interesting characters. And when a book combines that with serious angel smackdowns, really, what else do you need?”—Green Man Review

Library Journal
Remy Chandler, angel in self-imposed exile from Heaven and now a PI in Boston, is piecing his human life back together with a woman he believes he can truly love. When Aszrus, one of Heaven's greatest angelic generals, is found murdered, Remy is ordered to find his murderer, or he will be responsible for bringing about a second round of the war between Heaven and Hell—with the destruction of Earth as a likely piece of collateral damage. Convincingly portraying both his protagonist's heavenly and earthly realities, Sniegoski has created one of urban fantasy's most intriguing and sympathetic heroes. Remy's attempts to reconcile his love for mortals and his angelic powers make him a creature to be both feared and pitied. VERDICT Series fans as well as newcomers will enjoy the latest outing for this unusual detective.
