Jill Kismet has no choice but to seek treacherous allies - Perry, the devil she knows, and Melisande Belisa, the cunning Sorrows temptress whose true loyalties are unknown.
Kismet knows Perry and Belisa are likely playing for the same thing - her soul. It's just too bad, because she expects to beat them at their own game. Except their game is vengeance.
Nobody plays vengeance like Kismet. But if the revenge she seeks damns her, her enemies might get her soul after all...

"Packed with nonstop action...a compelling tale." (Romantic Times on Flesh Circus)
You must understand that this is the fifth book in a series that started with 'Nightshift' At the time of writing none of the others are available on audio. This could be listened to as a stand alone but it's real strength is in the context of the series. Lilith Saintcrow has basically tried to write this series before with the books about Dante Valentine. They were fun, mental popcorn but had serious problems with both plot coherence and characterisation. Her inexperience and a clearly feeble or uninterested editor were plain.
Here most of the problems are fixed. Jill Kismet is vastly more likeable than Valentine and her psychological flaws are front and centre with a clear background rationale. The other big improvement (and the reason that you really should read the others) is that this book was foreshadowed in the very first and makes sense of a lot of plot strands. Beyond that I cannot comment for fear of spoilers but the ending is, no I'd better not. Listen for yourself.
I am a guy that just loves a great story, dont mind if its fantasy like Eragon, or Horrorish like Joyland, a good story is true escapeisum
not sure what on earth was going on in my opinion it was just repetative dribble
"Saintcrow joins Audible at last!"
I am ecstatic to finally see Lilith Saintcrow on Audible! I've been an avid fan for years; read all the books in her Dante Valentine and Jill Kismet series multiple times (that is the highest praise I can bestow); now if only they were ALL available in audio... Do you hear me, Publisher? I will buy them all in audio version!
Heavens Spite is an excellent addition to the Jill Kismet story line - I could hardly bear to put it down long enough to eat and sleep. Who needs to eat anyway - when Jill is in such dire straights?! And now I wait with baited breath for the next installment in this superb series - consoled only by the fact that I can go back to Night Shift and once again read Jill and Saul's story from the beginning.
This is bad, real bad. Even though it is the first of a series, I felt like I had come to the middle of a series. A lot was not explained. There is lots of killing, lots of blood and lots of gore, but you really don't care. Even though it is only a little of seven hours long that is six hours too long. I could not waste my time trying to finish this very poorly written trash.
