Hellblazer's alter ego,
This review is from: Vicious Circle: A Felix Castor Novel, vol 2 (Paperback)
Again the hero felix castor struts his stuff in Mike Carey's apocalyptic future where ghosts, zombies and were beasts walk the streets in daylight. Very similar in feel to Constantine and Hellblazer, perhaps a parallel universe version of Constantine.
It also has echoes of Chandler's hard bitten detective - used, abused and eventually sorting things out - ish.
I loved it - as good as "the devil you know".
But definitely a dystopian noir view of the world.
For me one of the best bits was the descriptions of parts of london I have been in - I used to live next to what Mike Carey calls the Stanger and it is pretty weird and obscure.
I used to wonder what went on there - medical staff hung around but it was not the usual nhs sort of place that advertised its business.
