In the fourth gripping book in this series, old ghosts of different kinds come back to haunt Felix Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Castor far more trouble than he'd anticipated.

See, Castor's stepped over the line this time, and he knows he'll have to pay; how much is the only question. Not the best of times, then, for an unwelcome confrontation with his holier-than-thou brother, Matthew, and just when he thinks things can't possibly get any worse, along comes Father Gwillam and the Anathemata.
