Summary: “With you it’s always ‘Father this’, ‘Father that’.” Gianna sniffed. “It’s an obnoxious habit. Very childish. Act your age.” “Oh? And trying to interrupt a stranger about his business isn’t obnoxious?” “You’re such an asshole,” Gianna said, incredulous. “I can’t believe you said that. We’re trying to save a life.” “If you were remotely interested in charity of that nature you wouldn’t be in the family business.” The stranger was staring at them now, blinking owlishly. It wasn’t an unfamiliar reaction to anyone exposed to his sister and their quarrels. “Do you guys mind?” he said finally. His voice was rusty, seldom used.

Recommendation: Oh my God, this is so very, very good. The best, best thing about this is John’s voice. *chef’s kiss* It is perfection, he is just as nihilist as you’d imagine for his inner voice as this time in his life but his is still likable for all that. Santino and Gianna are younger and softer, well, relatively speaking. It amused me that John saw a Devil in Santino while others are not nearly that impressed. I loved that Cassian is included, he was so awesomely stoic. I can see why this one is one of the author’s favorite of their own work, top shelf stuff.
