Publisher's Summary

Welcome to London, but not as you know it. A place where magics and horror run free, wonders and miracles are everyday things, and the dark streets are full of very shadowy people.... 

Gideon Sable is a thief and a con man. He specializes in stealing the kind of things that can't normally be stolen. Like a ghost's clothes, or a photo from a country that never existed. He even stole his current identity. Who was he originally? Now, that would be telling. One thing's for sure though, he's not the bad guy. The people he steals from always have it coming. 

Gideon's planning a heist, to steal the only thing that matters from the worst man in the world. To get past his security, he's going to need a crew who can do the impossible...but luckily, he has the right people in mind. The Damned, the Ghost, the Wild Card...and his ex-girlfriend, Annie Anybody. A woman who can be anyone, with the power to make technology fall in love with her. If things go well, they'll all get what they want. And if they're lucky, they might not even die trying.

Excellent!

A wonderful book! Perhaps a little short but that is fine. If you like the Night Side you will love this book! If you like Simon R. Green you will love this book! I hope this starts Mr. Green's new series.

Very good read. Well worth it.

Another imaginative and entertaining story by Simon R. Green. Like his Tales of the Nightside series, this dark fantasy is unique and very well written.

Short listen but worth the credit

I’m a huge fan of Simon R Green so my expectations were high. The premise, the cast of characters, along with twist makes this a fav. I hope it’s the start of a series.

Just ok for me

I was really excited to listen to this book after reading the synopsis and reading the reviews but it didn't pan out for me. I kept catching that my attention has wandered and I would have missed large portions of a chapter, so I'd rewind and still miss it. The story never captured my attention. I finally quit about halfway through because I couldn't keep track of the story. Was it a bad book? No. Was the narrator bad? Also no. It just wasn't for me.
