Description
I’ve been told to go to Hell more times than I can count. But this time I’m actually going.

My name’s Bobby Dollar, sometimes known as Doloriel, and of course, Hell isn’t a great place for someone like me—I’m an angel. They don’t like my kind down there, not even the slightly fallen variety. But they have my girlfriend, who happens to be a beautiful demon named Casimira, Countess of Cold Hands. Why does an angel have a demon girlfriend? Well, certainly not because it helps my career.

She’s being held hostage by one of the nastiest, most powerful demons in all of the netherworld—Eligor, Grand Duke of Hell. He already hates me, and he’d like nothing better than to get his hands on me and rip my immortal soul right out of my borrowed but oh-so-mortal body.

But wait, it gets better! Not only do I have to sneak into Hell, make my way across thousands of miles of terror and suffering to reach Pan- demonium, capital of the fiery depths, but then I have to steal Caz right out from under Eligor’s burning eyes and smuggle her out again, past demon soldiers, hellhounds, and all the murderous creatures imprisoned there for eternity. And even if I somehow manage to escape Hell, I’m also being stalked by an undead psychopath named Smyler who’s been following me for weeks. Oh, and did I mention that he can’t be killed?

So if I somehow survive Hell, elude the Grand Duke and all his hideous minions and make it back to the real world, I’ll still be the most hunted soul in Creation. But at least I’ll have Caz. Gotta have something to look forward to, right?

So just pour me that damn drink, will you? I’ve got somewhere to go.

        —Patrick Rothfuss, #1 NYT bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

        "A noir fantasy series with a dark and thrilling story of Heaven and Hell battling for human souls. Exhilarating action, fascinating characters, and high stakes will leave the reader both satisfied and eager for the next installment."
        Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

        "Fans as well as urban fantasy enthusiasts will enjoy Williams's take on Heaven's less desirable places as well as his wry humor and keen insights."
        Library Journal, Starred Review

        "With a hint of detective noir, a colorful cast of characters and fast-paced, witty dialogue, The Dirty Streets of Heaven is a fantastically fun read."
        —Amazon.co.uk Editors' Pick

        "Delicious, crunchy, Hellish fun.... Bobby's odyssey makes for a compelling, page-turning experience, chock-full of visceral sights and sensory overload."

        July 29, 2013
        The second installment of Williams’s urban fantasy series (after The Dirty Streets of Heaven) starts off, like the previous installment, with wisecracking Bobby Dollar (aka the Angel Doloriel) proving he “never lets facts or good sense stand in the way of a suicidally foolish course of action.” Bobby, on “indefinite leave” from work as a soul-saving angel, is pining away for his demon girlfriend, Caz, Countess of the Cold Hands, who’s now in Hell with her owner, Eligor the Horseman. Bobby is also being hunted by a twice-dead psycho-killer demon, Smyler, demanding the magical golden feather that Bobby stole from none other than Eligor. Wearing a new demon body and persona, Bobby embarks on a chaotic cloak-and-dagger mission through Hell’s many levels of infernal protocols and punishments to rescue Caz. Fans are assured of dark humor, even darker adventures, and quirky characters in this solid read, though the too-long stay in Hell sometimes slows the storyline. Agent: Matt Bialer, Sanford J. Greenberger Associates.
