A Kiss Before the Apocalypse by Thomas E. Sniegoski
The Remy Chandler Chronicles, #1
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. Generations ago, when he was known as the angel Remiel, he chose to renounce heaven and live on Earth. He’s found a place among us ordinary humans, with friendship, a job he’s good at—and love.
Now he is being drawn into a case with strong ties to his angelic past. The Angel of Death has gone missing, and Remy’s former colleagues have come to him for help. But what at first seems to be about tracing a missing person turns out to involve much more—a conspiracy that has as its goal the destruction of the human race. An only Remy Chandler can stop it.

I found this story because its audiobook narrator is Luke Daniels, who I think is amazing (more about him in another review). And thanks to him, I have a new favorite author and character in Thomas E. Sniegoski and Remy Chandler.
I give this story FOUR STARS.
By the way, I listened to an audiobook version of this story and I had to guess the spelling of the Angel of Death’s name. If I got it wrong, could someone please let me know so I can correct it? Thanks!
