This summer, JABberwocky are due to publish a new edition of AN OCCUPATION OF ANGELS by Lavie Tidhar! With a gorgeous new cover by Paul McCaffrey (who also worked with Lavie on his comic series, ADLER), here’s the synopsis…
A British secret agent is caught in a plot to assassinate archangels who settled Earth after WWII in this classic thriller from the World Fantasy Award winning author!
In 1945, the Archangels materialised over the battlefields of Europe, ushering in a new Cold War. Fifty years later, they are being killed off… one by one.
But who – or what – can kill an angel?
Killarney is a shadow executive for the Bureau, British Intelligence’s most secret organisation. She is the best – and she always works alone. Sent on a desperate mission to locate a missing cryptographer who may prove the key to the murders, Killarney finds herself running for her life, from London to Paris to Moscow, leading to a confrontation with a very human evil in the frozen wastelands of Novosibirsk.
Plagued by dreams of a different world, and haunted by a swastika adorned with angel wings, it could take all of Killarney’s resources to survive, when Heaven itself may be threatened, and God herself may be walking the earth…
AN OCCUPATION OF ANGELS will be available from June 7th.

‘A novella of blistering, ballistic energy and ferocious cleverness.’ — James Lovegrove
