When a high roller dies
in his Vegas penthouse suite, that's a problem. When his ghost refuses
to leave, that's a bigger problem. Daniel Faust is the solution. Called
in to clean up the casino's mess, the modern-day sorcerer soon learns
that the restless spirit isn't going down without a fight. To set things
right, he'll have to delve someplace even seedier, even more
treacherous, than the Vegas Strip: the Los Angeles music industry.
In a snare between a scheming record producer, an embattled songstress and a lethal drug cartel, Daniel and his crew hit the streets of LA. Opportunity is knocking. There's a score to be had. And with a quarter of a million dollars on the table, this murder mystery just became a heist in the making.
(The White Gold Score is a 46,000-word novella in the Daniel Faust series, a side-story that takes place between The Long Way Down and Redemption Song.)
Craig Schaefer's books have taken readers to the seamy edge of a criminal underworld drenched in shadow (the Daniel Faust series), to a world torn by war, poison and witchcraft (the Revanche Cycle), and - beginning this winter - across a modern America mired in occult mysteries and a conspiracy of lies (the Harmony Black series).
Despite this, people say he's strangely normal. Suspiciously normal, in fact.
Schaefer lives in Illinois with a small retinue of cats, all of whom try to interrupt his writing schedule and/or kill him on a regular basis. He practices sleight of hand in his spare time, though he's not very good at it.
