'When the Devil laughs the whole damn world laughs with Him'
A mind-bending thriller blending hard-boiled detective fiction, supernatural horror, and metaphysical noir that takes readers on a macabre journey into the occult, from mid-fifties New York to Paris to the Vatican, as private investigator Harry Angel, seeking both answers about his true identity and revenge, hunts down Satan himself. Here is the stunning sequel to the Edgar-nominated novel Falling Angel, the basis for the classic cult film Angel Heart, which also stands alone as a masterwork of noir suspense fiction.
'Falling Angel is a terrific book...I've never read anything remotely like it. Trying to imagine what might have happened if Raymond Chandler had written The Exorcist is as close as I can come' - Stephen King
'Angel's Inferno is long-awaited and darker than hell. The devil owns all shades of noir in a sequel we never thought would happen' - Maxim Jakubowski
'Masterfully shocking (on Falling Angel)' - Observer
'Falling Angel is one of the greatest mysteries ever written' - Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Independent
'Much scarier than The Exorcist, Falling Angel makes most of Chandler's oeuvre feel like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm' - Crime Time

It’s a fascinating, gripping and somehow terrifying story. I saw the movie long time ago and was curious about the follow up. The author delivers a story that mixes noir with horror and the outcome is fascinating. Interesting world building and character development, a tightly knitted plot. It’s highly recommended Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this arc, all opinions are mine
