The fourth in the Felix Castor series sees Felix returning, briefly, to his roots and reliving some of the "joy" he had as a child. We also be a bit more of brother Matt, or rather Father Matt, his brother the priest and the return of Gwillam and his religious zelots. When an old "buddy" of Fix's is almost murdered and leaves F Castor written in blood on his windshield all attention turns to Fix but even though Fix has an alibi he can't use it since what he was doing was not quite legal and would get him into even more hot water with Basquiet and his police friend Gary Coldwater. Due to a lack of evidence (other than the damning F Castor on the windshield) Fix goes free and being Fix he goes to see what happened. What he finds there doesn't make much sense to him a miasma spreading over the "town" with no fixed locus and the more he tries to understand and banish it the worse trouble he seems to be getting into. Even Juliet won't seem to help him with this one. Another solid outing in the series, well written and with enough twists and turns that it could leave you guessing. I"m usually good at letting the book reveal itself in its own good time but the various plot outcomes seemed pretty obvious to me on this one.
