For Heaven's Eyes Only

Simon R. Green. Roc, $25.95 (368p) ISBN 978-0-451-46395-1
Bestseller Green adds a winning fifth entry to his Secret Histories series (after From Hell with Love). Eddie Drood, aka secret agent Shaman Bond, and his family are the last line of defense between humanity and the big, bad, magical things that go bump in the night. When Eddie and his witch lover, Molly Metcalf, stumble across a Satanist conspiracy, the Droods vow to stop the Satanists' horrific plan, which involves a mysterious Great Sacrifice. Along the way, Eddie tackles every possible over-the-top supernatural action situation—an office building full of bad guys, a Supernatural Arms Faire—with aplomb. Clever world-building, madcap characters, cheeky one-liners, and a James Bond feel make this series stand out, and a surprise ending will have readers eagerly anticipating the next Eddie Drood adventure.
