"Master thief and con man Gideon Sable has a plan. He intends to breach the private vault of Fredric Hammer, noted bad guy, and rob him blind. To do that, he needs to assemble a crack team of professionals. But this is no ordinary team, because this is no ordinary London. This is an alternate London, wherein ghosts and demons and people with special gifts coexist with regular human folk. And Gideon's team consists of former girlfriend Annie Anybody, whose gift is luck; a fellow known as the Damned (because he's, you know, damned); the Ghost, who retains the memory of what it is to be a man; and the Wild Card, who sees all the truths in the world. Each of them has a score to settle with Hammer, and each of them is willing to risk plenty to get revenge. This novel by the author of the terrific Ishmael Jones series is a treat for anyone who relishes the blending of alternate-world fantasy, urban fantasy, and the caper novel. Exciting, witty, and stuffed full of fun."
"[Green] gives an urban fantasy twist to Oceans 11."
"You don’t so much read a Simon R Green novel as grab on with both hands and hope you’re still alive at the end of the ride... [Green's] writing is the very definition of pure, unadulterated escapism."
"If you like the idea of a snark-sparked team coming together in order to pull off the caper of the century, Gideon Sable might just be your jam."
"If you like gritty, funny, slapdash urban fantasy heist novels with crazy characters...ou will enjoy this."
"[Featuring] pacey writing, strong characters and tongue-in-cheek humour that doesn’t take itself too seriously."
