When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle - led by the conniving and powerful Mason Faim - that stole his life.

"James Stark, magician and antihero of sorts, returns to the human realm after 11 years in hell--literally, not metaphorically. He returns as a "flesh and bone, armor-plated Dirty Harry" hit man who seeks revenge against the six people responsible for his entrapment there. MacLeod Andrews's performance infuses subtle energy into this urban fantasy, which is full of black magic and black humor. His crisp pronunciation and swaggering tone perfectly capture the noir tone of the novel. Andrews flawlessly shifts between various accents (he plays a 200-year-old Frenchman, for example) and character personas--from petty criminals and crime bosses to supernatural beings. The combination of Andrews's vocals and Kadrey's storytelling skills should satisfy and amuse. A.L.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
