We rated this book:


Her name is Julie Crews and her job is to put bad things to rest. She is good at her job, but with her reputation, costly habits, and poor accounting, Julie is often short on cash. What Julie does have is a saintly landlord, good friends by her side, and a tenacious go-get-‘em-killer attitude. And poor judgment. To make life easier, Julie decides to summon a guardian angel who is not quite what she hoped it would be. Now Julie must track down the otherworldly threat before it’s too late.

The Dead Take the A Train is a new thriller from Cassandra Khaw and Richard Kadrey. Combining Khaw’s supernatural horror with Kadrey’s urban fantasy illusions is pure genius. The author team wastes no time getting into the gore and chaos. This novel is a high-adrenaline thrill ride, flinging blood and guts from page one. In other words, it’s so metal! Fans of either writer will instantaneously recognize each author’s influence even as their styles blend seamlessly. For page after page of magical mayhem and gruesome savagery, try The Dead Take the A Train.
