Familiar territory trodden in North London - East Finchley, Mile End, Stoke Newington - lovely sense of place - I wonder where he based Mount Grace Cemetary on ? Familiar characters take a look in but we get to know more about Juliet who has a very hard time, and are introduced to drum notation. It still reads like a cross between Chandler and Dr Taverner (from the novels of Dion Fortune) - and this feels like his best in this series yet. It follows firmly in the footsteps of Vicious Circle and the Devil You Know. I wonder if in future tales the ground will move to Liverpool ? More familiar for the author - yet not as occult a city (to my mind) as London is.
