Billy has apparently hit bottom when thugs come to claim his gambling debts. His fiance is ex and now he's holed up in an abandoned house with what looks like a homeless vagrant, who smells worse than a goat, and who's eyes have apparently been scratched out by the hoards of brown winged fey. The stakes are high, and when he stands in for the blinded god in a poker game the risks run even higher. Many lives are on the line and the play runs at many levels.
This book starts out at a run and doesn't stop. Urban Fantasy with humor, if you like Dresden, give this a try!
Billy Fox is not your standard-issue flawed hero, in that he doesn't just have the usual "failure to launch" syndrome so many have had, and his past wasn't one most people would ever have envied. But he's not hopelessly tragic either.
The characters that surround him in his new environment are certainly strange, yes, but their appearances aren't the end of who they are. They're still real people too, whether they have fins on their heads, or they're not exactly among the living, or they have the bodies of snakes. As an added bonus, Billy winds up with one of the worst bosses anyone has seen in a long time.
Tampa is more than just a backdrop, or a couple of set pieces; it's written from the standpoint of one who has lived here, and knows the ins and outs, although the title character winds up running through what I think is the Interbay area for the first time in his life. Of course, anyone who lives here knows that Tampa is a massive sprawl, and it's pretty easy to find new and unusual places. Maybe some of them ARE populated with Old People (and not the kind who hunch over the steering wheels of ancient Lincolns and Cadillacs).
"Blind God's Bluff: A Billy Fox Novel" isn't a long read, but it tells a helluva story.
