A god has died, and it's up to Tara, a first-year associate in the international necromantic firm of Kelethras, Albrecht, and Ao, to bring him back to life before his city falls apart.

Her client is Kos, recently deceased fire god of the city of Alt Coulumb. Without him, the metropolis' steam generators will shut down, its trains will cease running, and its four million citizens will riot.

Tara's job: resurrect Kos before chaos sets in. Her only help: Abelard, a chain-smoking priest of the dead god who's having an understandable crisis of faith. When Tara and Abelard discover that Kos was murdered, they have to make a case in Alt Coulumb's courts - and their quest for the truth endangers their partnership, their lives, and Alt Coulumb's slim hope of survival.

Set in a phenomenally built world in which justice is a collective force bestowed on a few, craftsmen fly on lightning bolts, and gargoyles can rule cities, Three Parts Dead introduces listeners to an ethical landscape in which the line between right and wrong blurs.

About the author: Max Gladstone went to Yale, where he wrote a short story that became a finalist in the Writers of the Future competition. He lives in Boston.

    " O.K., this is one of those reviews that I don't know how to post. Personal rating is 1 star, but the book is more like 3 stars. It is well written and an interesting concept, but it did not do much for me personally. Too many and frequent switches in the narration and a few squick me our moments just left me with no desire to read any more in this series, but I would read the author again to see if it is just this book series I don't care for. "

    " I devoured the book in one sitting. It opens with a bang, has complex worldbuilding, and the narrative / descriptive sections were rich and rewarding. "

    " An incredible book from an original mind. The setting is reminiscent of arcana pulp such as Hell's Feast and others that manage to intermingle the use of magic and technology and society into a seamless whole. Every concept behind the plot and story is an easter egg for the writer. This book is depressingly good since it tends to outshine previous works of a similar vein. Highly recommended. "

    " While it was difficult at time to understand this unique world created by Gladstone, I loved this book! The characters are unique and appealing, the plot is interesting, the writing is excellant. Hope this becomes a series, looking forward to more adventures with Tara plying her Craft. "
