Boston P.I. Remy Chandler has many talents. He can will himself invisible, he can speak and understand any foreign language (including the language of animals), and if he listens carefully, he can hear thoughts. Unusual, to say the least - for an ordinary man. But Remy is no ordinary man - he's an angel.
WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD
by Thomas E. Sniegoski
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...
More about the series, in my own words:
If you like supernatural detectives, then you're going to love Remy Chandler. His stories have action, adventure, fallen angels, mythology, and a lot of heart. Remy Chandler is a man grieving over the loss of his wife. He's also a guy who thinks a dog is a man's best friend, so he takes wonderful care of his dog, Marlowe. He also just happens to be a fallen angel.
If you read and enjoyed Sniegoski's series The Fallen (which you may have seen as a limited series on ABC Family, starring Paul Wesley before he took a bite out of The Vampire Diaries) or like the angelic storyline on Supernatural, you're going to love Sniegoski's Remy books.
Where Angels Fear to Tread is the third Remy Chandler novel. A Kiss Before the Apocalypse was the first; Dancing on the Head of a Pin was the second. Sniegoski is currently working the fourth full-length novel in the line. I recommend reading the books in order.
The supernatural private investigator anthology Mean Streets, published between the first two novels, included a short story entitled Noah's Orphans which featured Remy.
