He was once known as the angel Remiel. But, generations ago, Boston PI Remy Chandler renounced Heaven and chose to live on Earth, hiding among us humans, fighting to save our souls...
Remy Chandler is hovering on the brink of death, surrounded by friends who are trying to ward off those who would take advantage of his vulnerability. Unbeknownst to them, the greatest threat to Remy is one they can't fight--God himself. The Almighty dispatches Remy far beyond their reach, to an alternate universe where there has been an apocalyptic catastrophe: the Unification.
Only as he hunts down the source of this calamity, it becomes clearer and clearer that the person responsible for the tragedy may have been none other than Remy himself.
And while he searches for a way to stop his world from following in the footsteps of the doomed alternate reality, enemies are massing in his universe. For the Unification is at hand and, this time, Remy may be powerless to affect its outcome...

Sniegoskis seventh hard-boiled fantasy starring PI Remy Chandlerformerly known as the archangel Remielpicks up immediately after the events of Walking in the Midst of Fire, with Remy nearly dead from an attempted supernatural assassination. God and Lucifer are finally beginning to talk about Unification, in which the fallen angels would be forgiven and welcomed back to heaven. As Remys soul drifts, he encounters what appears to be an aspect of God, who sends him to another world where Unification failed, so he can better understand what went wrong. Meanwhile, Remys friendsincluding his lover, Linda; his cop buddy, Steven; and fallen angel Francisare working to keep his body alive, battling both his current injuries and the supernatural assassins known as the Bone Masters who are committed to carrying out their contract on him. While Sniegoski does a solid job of bringing readers up to speed, this story is clearly aimed at longtime fans, and it hits home, resolving some long-standing arcs and dropping some bombshells. Fans of Remy will feel satisfied, though emotionally spent. Agent: Kate Schafer Testerman, KT Literary. (Oct.)
