Hitman Don Drake owes a gambling debt to a demon. Forced to carry out one more assassination to clear his debt, Don unwittingly kills an innocent child and brings the Furies of Greek myth down upon himself.
Rescued by an almost fallen angel called Trixie, Don and his magical accomplice - the Burned Man, an imprisoned archdemon - are forced to deal with Lucifer himself whilst battling a powerful evil magician.
Now Don must foil Lucifer’s plan to complete Trixie's fall and save her soul whilst preventing the Burned Man from breaking free from captivity and wreaking havoc on the entire world.

I came upon this book by chance in my search for something other than the typical fantasy book. As the book is being read I imagined the whole thing in a film noir style much like sin city. It's dark, has sorcery, demons, fallen angels, and even Lucifer in a man's journey to get out from under a gambling debt with an arch demon. I can't wait till the next one.
Authentic and unapologetic protagonist
Mark gave it a true London edge though I didn't think his reading female characters was great.
Headlong rush into trouble.
