Publisher's Summary

As the FBI closes in on the Las Vegas underworld, Daniel Faust - grifter, thief, and sorcerer - isn't the only one feeling the heat. Half-demon racket boss Nicky Agnelli is fighting to hang on to his empire, leaving a trail of dead informants in his wake, while Daniel's ex-girlfriend, Jennifer, rallies her forces on the street and aims her sights at Nicky's crown.
Meanwhile, homeless people are vanishing by the dozens. Daniel has bigger problems to worry about, but a plea from an old friend sends him on a search for answers. What he finds is a conspiracy 20 years in the making, involving a power-hungry senator, occult experiments, murderous British mercenaries...and Lauren Carmichael, Daniel's nemesis.
From a gunfight in the Arizona badlands to unearthing buried secrets in a New York laboratory, the hunt is on. With Lauren's deadly plan revealed and time running out, Daniel and his crew will stop at nothing to take her down. She's got the law in her pocket and a hired army at her back. He's got black magic, bullets, and the art of the con. It's high noon in Vegas, and when the dust settles, only one side will be left standing.
May the best villain win.

Good Installment

Any additional comments?

This is a really good installment for the series. I really enjoy the narration - I think the narration makes the story better than it actually is . Really wish we could break down the ratings more, because the story is more like a 3.5. The author borrows heavily from the rest of the genre. Having said that, I really do enjoy the main character - his humor, quips, and general cranky attitude. The love story aspect is ....stale, not sure what to say exactly, but the love story could have been better or left out. Great characters and I'll be ready for he next one.

Series keeps developing...enjoying this

The stories are developing nicely and each book so far has ended in away that seems to "fit"

The characters are developed enough to get to know them which for me is a make our break issue

The narrators accents haven't got any better (they're dreadful) but somehow it doesn't matter as his reading style is otherwise great

This third instalment in the Daniel Faust series was just as much fun to read as the first two books in the series were. Craig Schaefer has done a fantastic job of seamlessly blending some hilarious dialogue and happenings into a very dark and gritty Vegas set UF noir. The story was fast paced and filled with action, drama, and plenty of cool supernatural happenings!

Life is not proving easy for Daniel Faust, ex-gangster and sorcerer for hire, as he has a whole host of problems to deal with. His nemesis Lauren Carmichael and her crazed enforcer Meadow Brand continue to press on with their plans for world domination. FBI agent Harmony Black still wants both Daniel and his ex-boss the half demon gang kingpin of Las Vegas Nicky Agnelli, behind bars. Daniel's ex-girlfriend Jennifer is feeling twitchy about the whole FBI situation and is mustering her own forces as she senses Nicky might be vulnerable. Daniel's friend Pixie wants his help in tracking down a spate of missing homeless people, and just for good measure the smoke faced men are back!

Daniel himself is a likeable and witty lead who is super easy to root for despite the fact that he is no angel.

All in all this was a very enjoyable read.

The more I hear Adam Verner the happier I am with his narration. He gives another excellent performance with this one.
