Bobby Dollar is an angel--a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby's wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own--pride, anger, even lust.

But his problems aren't all his fault. Bobby can't entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he's not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions. And he sure as hell doesn't trust the achingly gorgeous Countess of Cold Hands, a mysterious she-demon who seems to be the only one willing to tell him the truth.

When the souls of the recently departed start disappearing, catching both Heaven and Hell by surprise, things get bad very quickly for Bobby D. End-of-the-world bad. Beast of Revelations bad. Caught between the angry forces of Hell, the dangerous strategies of his own side, and a monstrous undead avenger that wants to rip his head off and suck out his soul, Bobby's going to need all the friends he can get--in Heaven, on Earth, or anywhere else he can find them.

You've never met an angel like Bobby Dollar. And you've never read anything like The Dirty Streets of Heaven.

Brace yourself--the afterlife is weirder than you ever believed.

Quite a fast-paced book that kept me turning the pages - surprisingly, because I've only read the 'Otherland' series from him so far, which was rather lengthy. The main protagonist, supposedly an angel fighting on the Good side, investigates the disappearance of souls. His very un-angel-like behaviour is not very consistent with the premise of the book, but a very good read anyway.

If you are strongly religious (Christianity or Islam) you will, probably, find this book sacriligious. Humans becoming angels and helping the judgement of the just deceased!!! Basically a mystery with coverup story.
