More About Walking in the Midst of Fire by Thomas E. Sniegoski
Remy Chandler, angel private investigator, is trying his damnedest to lead a normal life in a world on the verge of supernatural change. He's found a new love--a woman his dog, Marlowe, approves of--and his best human friend is reluctantly coming to grips with how...unusual...Remy's actions can be. And he's finally reached a kind of peace between his true angelic nature and the human persona he created for himself so very long ago.
But that peace can't last--Heaven and the Legions of the Fallen still stand on the brink of war. Then one of Heaven's greatest generals is murdered, and it falls to Remy to discover who--or what--might be responsible for the death, which could trigger the final conflict...a conflict in which Earth will most certainly be the beachhead.
The deeper he digs, the further he goes into a dark world of demonic assassins, secret brothels, and things that are unsettling even to a being who has lived since time began. But it is not in his nature--angelic or human--to stop until he has found the killer, no matter the personal price....

Sniegoski continues to ramp up the stakes in the entertaining fifth hard-boiled adventure (after In the House of the Wicked) featuring private eye Remy Chandler, an angel living on Earth as a human. Thanks to previous events, most of the world is aware that there are supernatural occurrences afoot, but little has changed in everyday life. Remy is enjoying his new relationship with Linda, his first romance since the death of his wife, and repairing his friendship with police officer Steven Mulvehill. But when the angelic general Aszrus is murdered, Remy and his hilarious canine sidekick, Marlowe, are called into action once again. Clues lead to a man named Simeon; resurrected by a young Jesus Christ and doomed to never die, he bitterly envies the mortal humans who will someday die and meet God. Sniegoski throws in handy flashbacks to flesh out both the characters and the present-day mystery, and Remy’s encounter with a corrupt Pope is particularly gripping. There’s a mildly frustrating cliffhanger at the end of the book, but the story still feels complete and entertaining. Agent: Kate Schafer Testerman, kt literary. (Aug.)
