Synopsis: 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...
Review: Remy Chandler is truly settling back into his life, probably for the first time since losing his wife. He’s got a girlfriend, Linda, who Marlowe (his dog) loves, too. Remy’s also been able to integrate his angelic nature and his human guise a lot better than before when he used to repress it 100%. Yet, things never fail to be interesting for Remy when he’s called to assist in discovering who murdered a general in Heaven’s army. But the rabbit hole is deeper than even Remy could imagine and it’s up to him to stop a war which would spill over on Earth…wiping out life as we know it.
Note: It’s best to start at book 1 for this series, so you can follow the story better in this book.
‘Walking in the Midst of Fire’ is the sixth book in the Remy Chandler series. Remy’s been drafted to find out why a high ranking angel has been murdered. He doesn’t expect what he finds out at all. I really love this series and I’m happy to see Remy embracing his dual natures rather than totally suppressing his angelic side. I was also happy to see Mulvehill starting to come to terms with the world Remy inhabits. Marlowe’s still my favorite (aside from Remy) as he always has some great doggy insights. ‘Walking in the Midst of Fire’ is a great mystery and action-filled story with a very devious twist. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for Remy next!
