Small-time thief and hitman Conor Night thinks having terminal cancer is his worst problem. The illegal treatments keeping him alive are expensive, and the side effects a mixed bag:
Conor can raise the dead.
When a low-end hit points to a high-end job, Conor is suspicious, but it's an opportunity he can't afford to ignore. Armed with a set of soul-sucking ancient dice, a collection of corpses, and the estranged daughter of one of the most powerful wizards on Earth, it will take all of his wit, charm, and magic to navigate the treacherous world of the dominant Houses and either finish the job, or be finished himself.
He's got 99 problems, and dying is only one.

A superb urban fantasy
I've only listened to the audible version, but the narration is brilliant and immersed me into the story-line completely. So I'd say yes, at least for me as a listener.
Conor is my favourite character. I'm used to anti-heroes and guys you love to hate but here we have a hero that we feel sorry for. You worry about his declining health and almost don't want to get to the end because you like him and want it to turn out good - but can it? Some cool gifts. I really liked the idea of how his dice work as well as his general magical ability.
Yes. Really good narration, always. Really good voices to bring out the different characters and also a good voice for general narration. It's really easy to listen to and enjoy.
Yes. Although equally no because I wanted everything to go well for Conor but if he's going to die do I want to see it. Yes I want to see how it turns out as its a great story. So yes, but because I've engaged with this character, no.
I listened to it in two sitting and really enjoyed it.
