Yancy Lazarus—bluesman, gambler, mage, and professional fix-it man—has been working for the Guild of the Staff for over 25 years. Handling ugly problems no one else wants to touch. Mostly by breaking things, blowing ’em up, or otherwise meting out Guild sanctioned justice, Rambo-style.
His next assignment will be his last.
A Guild operative, with a headful of dangerous secrets, has gone missing inside Tír na nÓg, the court of the High Tuatha De Danann: ye olde Irish gods of badassery. Yancy—along with fellow wet-works man James Sullivan and Judge Ailia Levchenko—is dispatched to retrieve the missing operative or, barring that, make the perpetrators behind the operative’s disappearance pay a steep, bloody price for crossing the Guild.
But with pissed off godlings gunning for him on every side, a little kidnapping might be the least of Yancy’s worries.
The Guild investigators are gonna have to navigate the murky waters of court politics, ferret out a traitor amongst the ranks of the Tuatha De Danann, and devise a way to put the kibosh on an inter-dimensional invasion if they want to avoid being murdered horribly. And even if they do get to the bottom of the diabolical mystery, nothing will ever be the same, because one of their number isn’t coming home…
