The final title in Simon R. Green's Secret History series featuring Eddie Drood, aka Shaman Bond.
My name is Drood, Eddie Drood, but I should probably change that. My family has cast me out, but that doesn't mean the fight is over.
Unfortunately, Eddie's had a falling out with his nearest and dearest - some of whom were trying to kill him, so he has a valid excuse. Now, he and his true love (and powerful witch), Molly Metcalf, are now in the employ of The Department of the Uncanny.
Their Extremely Important Assignment is to attend Casino Infernale, an annual event held by the Shadow Bank, financiers of all global supernatural crime. Their mission: rig the game and bring the corrupt corporation crashing down.
But at Casino Infernale, the stakes are high indeed - the winner takes all and the losers give up their souls . . .
Casino Infernale is the seventh title in New York Times bestselling author Simon R. Green's Secret History series featuring Eddie Drood.
