    Book details


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.

    It's probably easy for the book snobs to sneer at this genre, but a good book is a good book no matter the storyline, and I'll happily read Craig's until the cows come home.Double Or Nothing is absolutely fab. Cracking story, excitement from the off, and more twists and turns than politicians promise. There's plot development with hints of what may be coming, and I think Mr. Butcher has a fight on his hands!Minor criticisms: Some of the minor characters are little more than cardboard cut-outs and on a personal note I wish the author could crack down on his use of the word "gonna".

    Wow what a wild ride! MR. Schaefer is the reason i buy a calendar, so i can count down the days until the next Faust novel is out.So great to be back in the saddle again, i wish i could go right back and read this series again for a first time.

    This is an author who can really write. I often find myself re- reading a phrase or passage because it is evocative or beautifully expressed, and the prose flows with liquid precision.This plot is just superb. The events astounded and captivated me throughout. I am very rarely surprised by a plot twist, but this book had me completely on the edge of my seat and amazed by what happened. Nevertheless, everything was satisfyingly explained - no "and then he woke up"s here.I disagree about the characterisation. I think that this a male author who can actually write very convincingly about women - and strong women- without making them seem like cutout men. Even the minor less well-drawn characters, such as the twins, are so hilarious that I just enjoy reading about them. I was sad that they don't make an appearance in this book, but one of their escapades in a previous book (as seen through another characters' eyes in this one) had me laughing out loud. I love the strong yet gentle uncles, and the fact that the cadence of their speech is different from the other characters. I always think that Caitlin and Faust's relationship and inter-actions ring true. For example in this book she is proud that he is being more active in the local affairs. How could you not like Faust as a character? I love his intelligence and his clever solutions. I enjoy witnessing his amoral yet strangely still- principled take on life.Only one thing I neither like nor enjoy about these books is the ghastly - and to my mind sometimes gratuitous - violence. We are all different, and I found the detailed descriptions of particularly nasty torture in the last book and the heart-rending description of a dreadful sacrifice in this one very difficult to digest. If you enjoy horror then my objections may not affect you, but I find the level of cruelty in these books disturbing, however good they may be in other ways. In future I'll stick with Harmony Black. Incidentally, look out for the mention of her in this book, it's hilarious.

    Thrills and spills continue as DF and his entourage of supernatural gangsters run up against enemies old and new, human and demonic. The pace is as relentless as the violence and gore. Excellent.
