Casino Infernale (#7)

Previous: Live and Let Drood | Next: Property of a Lady Faire

My name is Drood, Eddie Drood, aka Shaman Bond. For generations my family has protected you ordinary mortals against things that lurk in the darkness, just out of sight, but not at all out of mind.

Unfortunately, I’ve had a falling-out with my near and dear (some of whom were trying to kill me), so my true love and powerful witch, Molly Metcalf, and I are now in the employ of the Department of the Uncanny. We’ve been given an Extremely Important Assignment: Attend Casino Infernale, an annual event held by the Shadow Bank, financiers of all global supernatural crime. Our mission: Rig the game and bring down the Shadow Bank.

But at Casino Infernale, the stakes are high indeed—winner takes all, and losers give up their souls….


“The bottom line is that if you are a Simon Green fan, you’ll enjoy this book. With its ties to the rest of his universe, and all of his other qualities present in abundance, it’s everything that’s made him a bestselling author and then some.”

“Green has a fantastic new entry in this series, with his trademark cameos and shout-outs to his own work and many other pop culture touchstones, all building to a shattering climax where it all comes down to one decision. By contrast, the reader’s decision is easy: buy this book.”


“Simon R. Green pays homage to his other works, as well as sprinkles in enough pop references to appease even the pickiest of geeks […] I’m keeping my fingers crossed, that the books have no ending. I’ll gladly devour them until the sun refuses to shine anymore.”
