Publisher's Summary

My name is Roy Morgan, and I'm not your average Atlanta cop.
For one, most of them don't have to kill people to stay alive. I do. It's a half-demon thing. Yep, that's right, half-demon. It's awesome, especially since I'm half-warlock too, and those two sides don't much get along.
Still, that and a buck will get you a candy bar. So it's all good.
Or at least it was.
See, I had this dumb idea to stop a robbery in progress and have myself a snack. Turns out these weren't your run of the mill robbers. No, these were demonic slavers, there to capture the district attorney and sell her off to the highest bidding demon in Hell.
Now if I want to stop them, I'm going to have to fight my way through a city full of hellfire-flinging, gun-toting, spell-weaving demons.
My name is Roy Morgan, and I think I'll have seconds.

A great start now what happens next?

What this book does really well in both writing and narration is characters, the main characters are great with well-realised personality. I especially love how the imp is portrayed but I would not want to be around them myself.

If you like the modern day supernatural setting for your books then you should love this. I would like to know more about the setting and all the things the exist off screen.

The main character is quite powerful (compared to a mortal) but can be challenged by things in the world. This makes the dangerous situations much more interesting and tense as there is a real sense of risk. I think this could make a good film or TV show.

The plot is well done. The whole book is well paced and engrossing to listen to.I am more than happy with my time with this book and am interested to see what happens next book

All in all well worth a listen.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

"You've always got to try, right?"

Any additional comments?

A thoroughly enjoyable, light hearted listen, just right to blow away the blues on a rainy day.
Roy Morgan is a police officer, recently transferred from Boston to Atlanta. But he's no ordinary man. His seeker abilities make finding the serial store-raider-come-killer easy, where others in the force had been clueless, and his capture of the culprit, one Charles Witmore, brings him to the attention of the beautiful Assistant DA, And he senses a real problem: he senses her near death, another of his 'gifts'. Because Roy is unique, even in the world of non-human beings: he is half Warlock, half demon - and the two aspects of himself are constantly at war with each other. But he's a good guy, despite his insatiable appetite, and the DA is attractive. He wants to protect her. All of which brings a load of trouble to him and Garry, the elf who rides on his shoulder.

The story is fast paced, humerous and the crazy characters well painted. The dialogue, too, is slick, quick and sardonically funny. There are lots of twists in this demon's tale. James Foster's narration perfectly matches his character, too, with well delineated dialogue from numerous voices and a fast delivery of the text. He really becomes Roy with his deliciously warm and humerous delivery. An excellent pairing of reader and text.

Beware, however, the ending leaves open more to come. The story has not ended fully, and only another book will bring a conclusion. My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me my copy of Pound of Flesh. I really enjoyed the concept, the crazy story narrated so well and, especially Roy and friend Garry. I'm really looking forward to meeting them again in book two.
