Nobody knows the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas like Daniel Faust, a sorcerer for hire and ex-gangster who uses black magic and bullets to solve his clients' problems. When an old man comes seeking vengeance for his murdered granddaughter, what looks like a simple job quickly spirals out of control.
Soon Daniel stands in the crossfire between a murderous porn director; a corrupt cop with a quick trigger finger; and his own former employer, a racket boss who isn't entirely human. Then there's Caitlin: brilliant, beautiful, and the lethal right hand of a demon prince.
A man named Faust should know what happens when you rub shoulders with demons. Still Daniel can't resist being drawn to Caitlin's flame as they race to unlock the secret of the Etruscan Box, a relic that people all over town are dying - and killing - to get their hands on. As the bodies drop and the double-crosses pile up, Daniel will need every shred of his wits, courage, and sheer ruthlessness just to survive.
Daniel Faust knew he was standing with one foot over the brink of hell. He's about to find out just how far he can fall.

This starts out and I think that what we have is a normal mystery with some paranormal aspects to it. Girl lost part of her soul and Daniel Faust is going to find out why. Simple right? Not in the least!
There is so much in this book. Honestly, as the plot gets deeper and more threads get piled on, I completely forgot about Stacey. Poor girl needs her soul back and I’m over here stuck in the middle of all this fabulous drama that Schaefer raised and loving life!
Daniel Faust really reminds me of Constantine. I’m not sure if Craig has read Constantine but the book, and the show, is the epitome of everything Daniel Faust is. He is no hero. He may save people but in the end the only person he is really saving is himself. He does what he does for reasons known only to him and the people that paid him. Which means he is bound by no one and no law. I love it! There’s no telling if he is going to go good or bad! He even admits that the only reason he wants to help Stacey, and trudge through all the rest of the mess that is brought up during his investigation, is because Stacey’s grandfather paid him! He’s a scoundrel but the best type!
The narration was beautiful. I was already loving the story because it really pulls you in but the narration added that cream and cherry to the top. Adam Verner was able to add the essence of each of the characters and the emotion came through.
Favorite character is probably Caitlyn. I can’t even explain why. I was not sure about her but the second she opens her mouth I could tell I was going to like her. She has a curiosity about her that meshes well with Daniel’s personality.
At first I hated the ending. And then there is one last chapter and everything fell into place! Love, love, love the way this ended! Bit of a twist that worked perfectly with the grime of the story. Already have book two!
