Read Dead Men's Boots (Felix Castor book 3) by Mike Carey

Read Dead Men's Boots (Felix Castor book 3) by Mike Carey. The series gets stronger with every new book. The writing is sharp, taking on the noir style without leaking over to parody. The books are gritty with a light touch of humour. Many other urban fantasy series depend a great deal on witty banter to be engaging, Carey depends more on a plot that is well crafted. The mystery is well devised - I was in the dark for much of the book.
A good read.
