The Demon and the City by Liz Williams

Good but kind of odd fantasy/crime novel set in a near-future Singapore in a world where all the traditional gods and monsters have returned.

The crime novel part is mainly colour, with the novel playing out basically as a fantasy story. The characters are generally engaging, although there are just a few too many points of view (including some random 'interlude' chapters with completely new people that break up the climactic last few chapters).

A cautious recommendation for this.
