In the foreboding north, the demonic hordes of the magic-twisted hellscape known as the Worldwound encroach upon the southern kingdoms of Golarion. Their latest escalation embroils a preternaturally handsome and coolly charismatic swindler named Gad, who decides to assemble a team of thieves, cutthroats, and con men to take the fight into the demon lands and strike directly at the fiendish leader responsible for the latest raids - the demon Yath, the Shimmering Putrescence. Can Gad hold his team together long enough to pull off the ultimate con, or will trouble from within his own organization lead to an untimely end for them all?

This is story, unlike the others of its like, is written in a very abbreviated manner. Actions are quick and not described as intricately as the other tales (see Redemption Engine). The main character is very likeable and the backup characters make you think of Ocean's Eleven. The narrator did a great job with Kerrigan and Gad.
For some reason Caliyard (sp) sounds somewhat like Lando Calrissian. I actually liked that choice.
I recommend anything narrated by Steve West in the Tales series. Also the Liars Blade series is well done with likeable characters.
I also look forward to see more from this author to see if all the books are written similar or if they are more descriptive.
