What Song the Sirens Sang

Severn House. (Gideon Sable, Bk. 3). Oct. 2022. 192p. ISBN 9781448305759. $29.99. FANTASY
Gideon Sable is always the man with the plan, even if that plan and the identity that goes with it used to belong to someone else. Gideon will need to put all of his talents as rogue, thief, and con man to use in order to steal back a one-of-a-kind artifact from a thief. Gideon thinks he holds all the cards in this game, only to discover that he’s been played by an old friend. Trapped in a triple-crossing heist, Gideon’s going to have to lie, cheat, and connive his way into getting all his friends out in one piece—while making sure that all his enemies pay.
VERDICT The latest in Green’s “Gideon Sable” series (after A Matter of Death and Life) features a crew of criminals with hearts of gold and one of the snarkiest antiheroes to ever front an urban fantasy series, turning the murder and mayhem up to 11 while telling a story where disaster is always just on the other side of the door. Readers will be fondly reminded of the TV series Leverage, where the good guys are bad guys.
