A MATTER OF DEATH AND LIFE Paperback Edition Out Now in the UK!

The UK paperback edition of Simon R. Green‘s A MATTER OF DEATH AND LIFE is out today! Published by Severn House, it’s the third novel in the author’s Gideon Sable series. Here’s the synopsis…

Master thief, rogue and chancer Gideon Sable is back for another fast-paced supernatural heist – and this time he has the vault of a Las Vegas casino in his sights.

Judi Rifkin is one of the world’s most successful collectors of the weird and unnatural. In a London underworld filled with criminals with very special talents, Judi is a force to be reckoned with.

And Gideon Sable – thief, rogue and chancer – owes her a very large favour.

Judi makes him an offer he can’t refuse: steal her the legendary Masque of Ra, kept safe in a Las Vegas casino, and she’ll wipe the slate clean.

This isn’t Gideon’s first heist by a long shot. But with old grudges threatening to cloud his judgment, an unpredictable crew who don’t entirely trust each other and a formidable supernatural security team guarding his target, this job might be a gamble too far…

The North American edition of the paperback is due to be published on April 25th, 2023.

‘It’s a wonderfully imagined setting, which will be no surprise for those familiar with Green’s oeuvre. The Sable novels make perfect fare for fans of urban fantasy, thrillers, or caper novels (or, especially, blends of all three).’ — Booklist

Severn House also publishes the two other novels in the series — THE BEST THING YOU CAN STEAL (#1) and WHAT SONG THE SIRENS SANG (#3) — and are due to publish the fourth book, NOT OF THIS WORLD, in April 2023.
