Six year-old Zoe York has been taken and her mother has come to Remy for help. She shows him crude, childlike drawings that she claims are Zoe's visions of the future, everything leading up to her abduction, and some beyond. Like the picture of a man with wings who would come and save her-a man who is an angel.

Zoe's preternatural gifts have made her a target for those who wish to exploit her power to their own destructive ends. The search will take Remy to dark places he would rather avoid. But to save an innocent, Remy will ally himself with a variety of lesser evils-and his soul may pay the price...

Remy Chandler is back in another fabulous twist of combining religious/biblical history and contemporary fantasy while still maintaining a measure of respect for religion. Great fun and another wonderful story.

Thomas Sniegoski's lead character, Remi Chandler P.I.,is a fresh persona and has real heart felt appeal as he struggles with the duality of his being to maintain his beloved human nature as his Seraphim nature rises in the presence of evil and corruption. Sniegoski's characters are robust and well developed friends and villians. He easily draws you in to an alternate world coexisting in the shadows of Boston's rhythm, which he depicts so richly. This is just a great series filled with vibrant thoughtful characters in enlivened fast paced and subtly humorous supernatural adventures. If you haven't had the pleasure, please pick up books #1. A kiss before the Apocolypse and book #2. Dancing on the Head of a Pin. Though "Where Angels Fear to Tread" can be read as a stand-alone, why cheat yourself? This series is intelligent, exciting, funny, tender, and just keeps you wanting to see more! And who amongst us can resist the joy of being able to listen into Marlowe's thoughts? Thomas Sniegoski really hit one out of Fenway Park with his Remy Chandler Series!

I recently finished WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD, Thomas Sniegoski's latest installment of the Remy Chandler series. I've loved this series from the start and WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD did not disappoint. Angelic PI, Remy Chandler has what his friend and Homicide Detective Mulvehill would call a weird case. While searching for Zoe who was kidnapped by her father, Remy meets up with Samson who is on his own mission. He's searching for Delilah. Yep, were talking about the Samson and Delilah. As it turns out, everyone's paths lead to Zoe.

February 26, 2010: I can't say that I have been the biggest fan of the urban fantasy genre but I have been totally hooked on Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden Files for a few years. Last summer I picked up the Mean Streets compilation to see what Harry was up to and discovered Sniegoski's Remy Chandler character in his novella "Noah's Orphans". It was a terrific story and an even more interesting concept: An angel living amongst humans working as a private investigator. I immediately picked up the first two novels at my local bookstore and read them both in a single sitting. The books offer an interesting take on the concepts of angels, gods, heaven and hell weaved into two very good mysteries. What I really love, and what I found very moving at times, are the depictions of Remy's relationships with his human wife, his human friend Steve, his friend Francis (a former guardian angel who once was on the wrong side during the war in heaven and now guards one of the gates of hell as a penance) and especially with his dog and best friend, Marlowe. Angels have the ability to talk to animals and we get to eavesdrop on these hilarious and believable conversations. Sniegoski has not missed a beat with his newest installment in the series, "Where Angels Fear to Tread". Remy has been hired by the mother of young autistic girl to search for her kidnapped daughter who seems to have some clairvoyant abilities and may be the key to something big and powerful. He gets a little help from the Old Testament hero Samson, who is still alive, because the little girl is also being sought by Samson's former lover and betrayer Delilah for reasons unknown. Samson is still a little bitter over the breakup. It's a very enjoyable take on the biblical characters and it's obvious the author had a lot of fun making them contemporary and letting us know what they have been up to for the last four thousand or so years. I definitely recommend this book to anyone and I look forward to the next book!

The third book in a wonderful series, Where Angels Fear to Tread has a mother hiring our detective-angel to locate her child, who has been kidnapped by her father. Remy is drawn into the case when the mother shows him a picture the child drew of him and Marlowe -- though she has never met him. Remy quickly discovers that he is once again wrapped up in a supernatural mystery involving historic characters. If you have not read the Remy Chandler novels by Thomas Sniegoski, you are in for a treat. They are dark and gritty detective tales with a difference: the detective, Remy Chandler, is a Seraphim, a warrior angel who left heaven in search of his own humanity. Remy's angelic nature (and his wings!) are firmly held in check, until occasionally required - generally in battle. One delightful side benefit of an angelic nature is that Remy can speak every language on earth, including that of animals. He has great conversations with Marlowe, his black lab, and occasional (snobby) cats that he comes across. Remy's relationship with Marlowe is well done, and touching, as is his relationship with his best friend, Steven, a policeman.

This is the first of the Lazarus Long series. This one should be read first so you get a good idea of what the Howard Family Foundation is all about. It is very apparent that this story was written in a very different era than our own. A lot of the gender roles are very old-fashioned, but if the reader can get past this it is a wonderful story.

This is the third book in the Remy Chandler series; the most recent information that I can find says Sniegoski was contracted for four books in this series. This book was a great addition to the series.Remy gets contacted to work a missing child case; only this missing child is drawing prophetic pictures in crayon and is more than she seems. Deliliah, cursed to forever live without love, is also looking for the child. Samson gets pulled into the mess in an attempt to help Remy fight Deliliah, as he has been tasked by God to destroy her. Drawn into the mess is also an ancient god Dagon, who is trying to use the child to be reborn.There are some interesting characters in this book but they aren't necessarily the strong point of the story. What really distinguishes this book (as well as the first two) from others in the genre is the tight plot and great action scenes. Sniegoski does an excellent job of weaving a tight and engaging mystery/plot that doesn't waste space. Remy always has a clear goal and follows a logical path to get there. I just love that there is no rambling in these books or any sense of Sniegoski not knowing what he wants the characters to do.Those who were hoping that this book would expand on the changes that happened in Hell in book 2 may be disappointed. Though the reformed Hell is mentioned in passing, it is not a focal point of this story. In fact this book could be read without reading the first two (although you would be missing some of Remy's background); in general it is a very contained story.This books are also starting to get a bit formulaic for me. They always start with Remy getting a case, they always end with Remy having to yield to his angelic nature in order to save humanity from destruction. I am not saying this is bad; in general the books in this series have been quick, fun reads that are well written and enjoyable.Overall I thought this was another solid addition to the Remy Chandler series. I was a little disappointed that the main story arc involving the reformation of Hell wasn't dealt with much; in fact many of the side characters from previous book were missing. Still, it was an entertaining read. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

If you want to take a new look at some of our hero from the bible you will love these books as some of those who lived during the time of the bible have come to live in the 21st century.
