Publisher's Summary

Fifty years ago, Zeus, Inc., and its CEO, the mysterious Joseph Brentwood, saved the world from a major energy crisis by discovering a new unlimited energy resource. Now, in 2069, Mr. Brentwood has gone missing, and private eye Alex Grosjean has been hired to find him by his daughter (and Alex's best friend), Aleisha.
Blackouts begin to occur all over the world, and somehow, Alex believes it's tied to Mr. Brentwood's disappearance. Her search leads her through her own murky past and into the fantastical depths of Hell itself, where she discovers that Mr. Brentwood is not who or what he seems to be.
With the help of an otherworldly man named Pip, Alex must save both Mr. Brentwood and the world. But will she be able to face her own guilty past in order to do it?

It starts out as a crime drama, the main character haunted by her old demons as she helps a friend investigate her missing father. Suddenly, the story takes a twist into a completely different topic. Enjoyed the whole audio with great narration

By the Gods!!!

Burks pens a powerful tale the changes tonally as the story progresses. This is not a humor type book in the oughtright, but it does has hints of Adams and Pratchett in its flavoring. It ALSO has some cyberpunk, mythology, and noirish chunks to it as well. As crazy a combo those things are they work, which means Burks has done a great job writing this.

Sheckells is worth every penny as the narrator, She really clothes herself in an Alex suit, and then takes off running and dares you to catch up to her. She is pitch perfect in her role as the guide into Burks' world.

If the first book is any indication, then Burks has a hit series on her hands. I did receive a promo code to review this book, but did not, in any way, affect my opinion of this book.

Get it, read it, love it.
