Almost everyone that works for him wants him dead.
His best friend isn't speaking to him.
His girlfriend is now his ex-girlfriend.
And the Vampire Council has appointed a watchdog who'll decide if he lives past Thursday.
He has a kidnapping to solve, monsters and demons to fight, and a whole new crime empire to figure out.
Then there's Lilith... .
Join Jimmy as he tries to put his (un)life back together and stay alive long enough to save the world. Again.

My only gripe about this series, is that the books aren't long enough.. I absolutely love this series and as the story goes on I gets even better..I love all of the characters and find myself invested in them....This book was action packed on so many levels and just an overall great journey from start to finish...Looking forward to the next book!!@
I'm a big fan of Hartness and this one didn't disappoint. His style of humor carries throughout the story, but doesn't get in the way of the plot. There is lots for our protagonist to do as he is now in charge. Plenty of action as several story lines come together. Narration is spot on as usual.
Without getting into spoilers this is a John G Hartness novel. There is no status quo and everyone in extremis will react in surprising ways when the crap hits the fan just like real life. I love it. I hate it. I always on the edge of my seat and I love every minute of it even when I hate it. It's one hell of a ride every time.
Hartness always asks and answers a question in his novels and short story. The question that this story answers is what would Jimmy Black be like without his friends and family supporting/holding him back. Without spoiling the story we see a very different side of the character. I like it.
Everyone has a unique voice that is well acted. You can't ask more than that from a narrator.
It's too good for that. I love to savor it in chunks.
This isn't Bubba The Monster Hunter Season 3. Each story doesn't have a beginning, middle and end allowing the listener to jump in anywhere. This is book six. Start with book 1 and work your way forward as each book is a chapter in a very large novel.
