Publisher's Summary

It's hard to make a dishonest buck in Sin City, especially when a rogue FBI agent is gunning for your head. Flat broke and one step ahead of the law, Daniel Faust flees Vegas and lands in Chicago, where a risky heist promises to fill his pockets with cash.
There are the risks you can account for, and then there are the risks you never see coming, the ones that leave you blindsided and fighting to survive. Daniel is a stranger in a strange land, out of his element and surrounded by corrupt sorcerers, demons, and worse. Still, with a friend's soul hanging in the balance - not to mention a pile of stolen cash - giving up isn't an option.
Before he's done, Daniel will descend into the depths of Chicago's occult netherworld, competing in an underground poker tournament where the winner takes all...and with the infernal Court of Night-Blooming Flowers running the show, "winner takes all" has an entirely new meaning. The Flowers haven't forgotten Daniel's past insults, and if they get their way, he'll never leave the Windy City alive.

I love this series!

The Daniel Faust series has fast become my favourite UF series of the lot. This fourth book was just as much fun as the previous three instalments of the series. I love the mix of humor and dark happenings.

With Harmony Black in Vegas and breathing down Daniel's neck it is proving impossible for him to pull any of his usual cons and tricks. As a result he jumps at the chance to take an out of town heist. The job sounds simple, steal a knife from a collector. Of course, the theft proves far more complicated as the current owner of the knife turns out to be a powerful necromancer. It also does not help that Chicago is the territory of the Court of Night-Blooming Flowers, and they are not Daniels biggest fans!

The story was a ton of fun. Daniel had to use his wits to outfox both the Court of Night-Blooming Flowers agents in a high stakes poker game and Damien Echo, the necromancer who was in possession of the knife. Lucky for us Daniel is smart enough to realize he needed plenty of help so despite the change of setting we still got to enjoy the banter between Daniel and all of our favourite secondary characters.

A few interesting subplots that ran through the main story, as well as the shock ending, have me bursting with eagerness to get to the next book in the series!

Adam Verner has a few flaws, but is mostly a perfect fit for Daniel and this series. He just gets the tone and the humor.
