Levene, Rebecca -- Cold Warriors

On a day in the 1980s, two men commit suicide: one for ambiguous reasons in ambiguous ritual magic; one for the worst of both. This is their story. It wants to be supernatural intrigue thriller a la Tim Powers. The author gets the motley crew of magically damaged amateurs down pat, and the picaresque of too-weird-to-be-fictional locales. She falls down on the bad guys. Tim Powers is a Catholic, but he knows better than to make all his villains be cackling child-raping Satanists.
