The story starts, like all good noir stories, when a woman walks into Chandler's office. Her ex-husband has taken their autistic daughter and disappeared. The little girl has a special talent, she can draw the future. She not only drew the abduction weeks before but she also drew a picture of Remy and Marlowe complete with his address and phone number.
It's a fairly simple story of good versus evil and eviler. Not having read the first two books in the series I don't know why Remy fights against his Seraphim nature. I got kind of tired of Remy not letting him out to play. Then again, the book might have ended sooner if he had. There are interesting characters in this book. I might go read the other books just to see how they all came together. There is humor in the book but some Christians will find some of it irreverent if not downright blasphemous.
A couple of things bugged me. The first one is because I'm a dog lover. Remy feeds Marlowe apples. Apples seeds are toxic to dogs. I would be happier if Remy had cored the apple and given it to Marlowe in pieces. No one should just give their dog an apple.
The other thing that bugged me is this sentence:
The man in the sweat suit shifted suddenly in his chair, bending forward to bury his head in his hands, softly screaming.How the hell does someone softly scream? I can't imagine. It bugged me enough that I remembered what page it was on (152) after I finished the book.
The last thing I'll say is that I never trust a book that has a positive quote on the cover from someone who is listed in the acknowledgments/dedication of said book.
