With much the same humor as Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files series, it’s fun to read this decidedly English take on supernatural detectives (though the main character’s primary line of business is as a “Provider of spiritual services”, that is, an exorcist). The author has a light touch and a convincing cosmology that makes for a strong series. It’s apparent that the author also wrote for the Hellblazer comic, though perhaps it’s the other way around with his creative energies and knowledge making for a good fit with it. In any event, this series is definitely worth reading and the ending is quite satisfying in a way that approaches the intricate plotting of Tim Powers.
