When a high roller dies in his Vegas penthouse suite, that's a problem. When his ghost refuses to leave, that's a bigger problem. Daniel Faust is the solution. Called in to clean up the casino's mess, the modern-day sorcerer soon learns that the restless spirit isn't going down without a fight. To set things right, he'll have to delve someplace even seedier, even more treacherous, than the Vegas Strip: the Los Angeles music industry.
In a snare between a scheming record producer, an embattled songstress and a lethal drug cartel, Daniel and his crew hit the streets of LA. Opportunity is knocking. There's a score to be had. And with a quarter of a million dollars on the table, this murder mystery just became a heist in the making.
(The White Gold Score is a 46,000-word novella in the Daniel Faust series, a side-story that takes place between The Long Way Down and Redemption Song.)

Having read all of the Daniel Faust stories, having a 1.5 to go back to is awesome! The only downside to this story is that it is way too short.
Daniel is back to his antics. Which is weird because having read all of the previous books, I know his full story. To come back to right after book one, The Long Way Down, I had to change my thinking a bit. There are certain things that obviously have not happened yet and the Daniel Faust that I have come to know, is not quite this person. Still, he is amazing and I love hearing about him, no matter where in his time line!
That said, 150 pages is not enough for this story. It does add to the overall plot but was not one of my favorites. Maybe because of the time line and I know where things go. Either way, I did enjoy it. Craig Schaefer has a way of creating a mystery and although he peppers clues throughout, I am always surprised by the end. I am also always amazed how the end comes together. Much like his other books, there is so much happening that you may want to slow down the audio just to make sure you catch everything.
I definitely recommend to read them in order if possible, but if not, go back and take a listen to this. You will not regret the extra time with Daniel. As usual this was a ton of fun to listen to.
I was also very happy to see Adam Verner back for the narration! He did an impeccable job, as always. Having anyone else narrate Daniel would make me very uncomfortable! The audio was perfect. The tension from Adam Verner's voice is palpable. Well done!

this is a pretty good story. With great characters and a good plot line.
But… There is not a whole lot of magic, World building, and action.
The narrator is extremely good though.
More than what I expected! Great story and narration. Solid characters and smooth story flow. I generally liked this series before, but I'm giving it a more intense listen after this installment.
I love this series so much. the stories are unique and so are the characters. my only complaint is that I can't get enough of this character. faust is awesome.
A solid dose of Daniel Faust for those who are waiting for the next full length novel. A fun romp in LA where Faust and Co. must find a murderer to help an angry spirit let go.
