The Blame Game (The Statford Chronicles, Volume III), by John G. Walker
“Heads, he dies. Tails, he dies. The private detective of the gods can’t catch a break.
Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but that isn’t stopping someone from using a god of fire to assassinate the heads of a Chinese crime family, the people marked with ancient gold coins before having their hearts crushed. One of the last targets comes to private detective Tom Statford for help. That’s all well and good until he finds his client dead, and the last target has no idea what’s coming her way. Time is running out, and Tom has to find her before it’s too late.
