Product Description: New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green "continues to deliver enjoyable, fast-paced, and fun entertainment" (SFRevu) in his Secret Histories novels featuring supernatural arse kicker Eddie Drood--who's about to play a most dangerous game in his latest adventure....

Needless to say, we've made our fair share of enemies over the centuries—and made some questionable bargains.
In exchange for the power to fight the forces of darkness, my parents signed over their souls. They're not the only ones who've made deals with Heaven, Hell, and every otherworldly realm in between, but now the bill's due for several big names in the supernatural community.

The rules are simple: get from one side of the pocket dimension to the other and kill your competitors. The winner's debt is paid in full, and the losers get themselves permanently lost, body and soul, forever.
To save my loved ones, I've got to become a ringer in this deadly contest that's undoubtedly rigged by the Powers That Be....
