Something appalling lurks under the streets of London. Something that has survived for centuries, thriving on pain and hatred and grief.
And with another terrorist bombing campaign in the City, there's plenty to fuel such an appetite for evil.
Rachel Young has moved to the capital to work in one of the major hospital's Intensive Care Units: it's a desperate job at the best of times, and now is not the best of times.
Despite a happy marriage to Nick and a successful three-year recovery from past traumas, Rachel senses that the skin of normality over the abyss is about to erupt, and the glimpse of an old adversary lurking among the homeless people further increases her fears.
Roxanne – Angel of Death, Angel of Mourning – has returned from the Void…
‘Angels of Mourning… his excellent new novel. Perverse… bizarre… juxtaposes magical fiends and mundane settings to marvellously disconcerting effect’ TIME OUT
