Publisher's Summary

Nobody knows the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas like Daniel Faust, a sorcerer for hire and ex-gangster who uses black magic and bullets to solve his clients' problems. When an old man comes seeking vengeance for his murdered granddaughter, what looks like a simple job quickly spirals out of control.
Soon Daniel stands in the crossfire between a murderous porn director; a corrupt cop with a quick trigger finger; and his own former employer, a racket boss who isn't entirely human. Then there's Caitlin: brilliant, beautiful, and the lethal right hand of a demon prince.
A man named Faust should know what happens when you rub shoulders with demons. Still Daniel can't resist being drawn to Caitlin's flame as they race to unlock the secret of the Etruscan Box, a relic that people all over town are dying - and killing - to get their hands on. As the bodies drop and the double-crosses pile up, Daniel will need every shred of his wits, courage, and sheer ruthlessness just to survive.
Daniel Faust knew he was standing with one foot over the brink of hell. He's about to find out just how far he can fall.

Urban fantasy noir. Done right..

As the title states this is an excellent urban fatsy noir novel. Think what if Mike Hammer was a wizard. Be warned this not Dresden or Iron Druid. There are no cute pets or funny sidekicks, and no pop culture references.This is dark stuff and I love it!

If I didn't make it clear earlier, this is not for the kids. The whole thing starts around the murder of a porn starlet and spirals quickly into the dark from there. No one really gets a happy ending, although some do better than others. The story leaves a lot of room for future novels (Please write fast!) but ties up most loose ends by the end of the novel.

The narrator does a good job and has a fairly good range of distinctive voices. The only problem is he has one of the worst creole/Caribean accents ever. This is only is small problem though, and takes nothing away from the book.

The characters are well developed and fun to read. the world and magic system are left purposely vague. I usually like a better formed magic system for novels, but in this case it helps to maintain the myster of the series. If you like Dresden and Iron Druid this will be a much more dark, adult alternative for you. Don't miss this one.

- Cliff "I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help."

Nora Roberts and Jim Butcher have a weird mutated love child

I the book splits halfway through it started as a weak Harry Dresden novel and then quickly the lead character find the love romance and loses his mind. We then go into a Nora Roberts tailspin. The plot is shaky the whole ending is weird I don't know why this book is getting good reviews. Maybe his other books are better but this one's not that great.
