Publisher's Note
An angel is setting San Francisco afire. To destroy the fallen angels hiding on Earth, it will stop at nothing, no matter how many innocents have to die. Now two police detectives have discovered the terrifying truth behind this epidemic of unexplained fires. But how do you stop an angel?

Industry reviews
"So it is that earthly and once-heavenly powers join forces, in a narrative every bit as grittily realistic as Ed McBain or Elmore Leonard, and as matter-of-fact metaphysical as Borges. It's a blend I've not seen before, a narrative that veers and careens unpredictably, with wholly believable characters, no pretentious at all, and a quiet acceptance of the miraculous in our lives."
Bloomsbury Review - James Sallis

"...intriguing, unsettling insights into the nature of angels and demons."

A great mix of police procedural and a paranormal thriller. A rogue angel is on the loose in the streets of San Francisco. It's going to take two cops to stop him. Interesting concepts of good vs. evil, angels and demons.

A brilliant rendering of noir gumshoe thriller blended with supernatural horror....the human characters are well-delineated and engaging, the rogue spiritual entities battling on earth with complete disregard of casualties to mankind are chilling. The reader will be caught up immediately in the fatal dilemma confronting two policemen who desperately try to stop the escalating deathdealer.

A bit of a slow start. About 75% cop drama and 25% paranormal/religious. Was great once it got going. An interesting twist on angels and demons.
