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.

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.
