The Devil You Know, by Mike Carey

Apparently Mr. Carey has a successful series of books featuring this novel's hero, Fix Castor, who is an exorcist in London.   (His day job is writing comic books for Marvel, such as X-Men .)  Perhaps if I was really excited about the ghostly genre I'd too be a fan.  But I'm neither a fan of the genre nor of this book.

In fact, I found it quite difficult to read.  The hero is not easy to like, but worse, the writing is a challenge because it did not draw me in at all.   On the plus side, it is a mystery, and I was almost interested in who did it.
