Daniel Faust - sorcerer, thief, and newly-minted Las Vegas crime boss - has debts to pay. One of those debts has just come due, an IOU to be paid in the form of a high-risk heist, and it's a job he can't refuse. The mark? Daniel's arch-nemesis, a man with a Cheshire smile and the powers of a living god. The score? A sacrificial dagger buried under layers of electronic, occult, and human security, snug on the far side of a custom-built deathtrap.
Normally, a heist like that would be the end of Daniel's problems. This time, it's only the beginning.
Caitlin, Daniel's lover and the right hand of a demon prince, faces her own threat. She's adept at navigating the politics of Hell, keeping the peace with diplomatic grace and a whip, but a plan years in the making has left a ticking time bomb under her feet. When it explodes, it will send shockwaves through the infernal courts - and expose one of Caitlin's darkest secrets. A hidden enemy has targeted Caitlin and Daniel for destruction, and aims to lure them into an impossible snare. For one of them to escape, the other must die.
The only way out is through a maze of demonic bounty hunters, psychic assassins, unlikely enemies and even more unlikely allies. Daniel Faust has spent his life as a trickster, defeating his enemies with the art of the con. He may have finally met his match. Las Vegas is the ultimate chessboard, and his opponent is already two moves ahead.

This series just keeps getting better!
The writing, the plot, the characters, and the narration. This was just an all round great listen!
It is impossible to compare this with any other UF series as nothing else in the genre even comes close to being as good as Faust. The only other series that does is Harmony Black but that is a spin-off series from this one so that is hardly a surprise.
Probably Daniel Faust but the truth is Verner does a great job with all the characters. The only exception is Caitlin. Verner seems to think her accent is Irish rather than Scottish! That is a minor quibble in an otherwise flawless performance of the whole series.
This series has everything from action and drama to romance and humour so you get to experience all sorts of emotions while listening to the story.
It might be the 7th book in the series but the books are only getting better and better with each new instalment. I love how Daniel and all the secondary characters are developing and even the villains are growing more and more interesting and intriguing!

I haven't been able to listen to the book!
I haven't been able to listen to the book as it won't play on my iPod. The recording stops playing TWO SECONDS into the book. Is this a joke? This has been a real waste of money! I'm extremely disappointed with audible. I never got an answer to my email as to why this is happening. I definitely want a refund! Sadly, I won't be listening to this book so I won't have a real opinion of it any time soon.
