Technomancer Catherine Sharp has an extensive resume. Rewiring celebrity panic rooms. Doing IT work for the best casinos in Las Vegas. Completing server repair. But nowhere in her job description does it say she'll be investigating grisly murders. However, a girl is dead, and the gods are calling for the head of her killer. And the deity who owns Cat's soul has demanded that she lead the hunt. Adding to the fun, a team of ruthless mages is scouring Sin City searching for a magical veil that they think Cat possesses. By hook or by crook, they will get the relic, no matter how many bodies they must leave in their wake. One little problem, though: Cat doesn't know what or where the veil is. With two mysteries to solve, and the gods growing impatient, Cat knows she has little time to piece together the flimsy clues. Now, she must enlist the help of her best friend and his new girlfriend, put her trust in one who has betrayed her, and wade through some murky family secrets, before she winds up worm food herself. Place your bets, for the truth is about to be unveiled.

The title of the book suits the storyline very well. There were lots of action, intrigues between heaven and hell. The protagonist, Cat and her friends/allies fought hard to find the truth. Very well written and Mandy Nelson narrated/performed superbly. This is the first series I have heart her performance and I like it. I will be waiting anxiously for the next book to be published and I hope she will still the narrator.
