5.0 out of 5 stars Not just John Constantine revisited, 18 April 2006
This review is from: The Devil You Know: A Felix Castor Novel, vol 1 (Paperback)
I really thought this would be a prose version of Carey's Constantine / Hellblazer comics work and the first pages with lots of "London, my place of power" type stuff and a rather cruel Contantinesque way of ending a birthday party pretty much had me convinced. But then the broader humour, some Silence of the Lambs overtones, and general sexiness kicked in and it became clear that whilst Contantine may have been the kicking off point his influence diminishes as the book progresses and something rather spiffy results - though you'll spend a lot of time spotting echos of other books and even films. (And Juliet is a worryingly Constaninesque character to wrap on so lets hope the next novel keeps on in an original vein and doesn't turn her into Ellie...) Highly recommended. I finished it in less that a weekend cos I couldn't put it down.
