Set in Seattle mere weeks after the stock market crash that kicks off the Great Depression, prohibitionists and the cream of the (magical) crop clash with speakeasies and changelings in this enchanted heist novella. Comeuppance Served Cold clips right along but somehow makes room for copious intrigues, prejudices, and so many delightful, colorful characters. I want to bask in the sheer vibrancy of the world Marion Deeds has conjured. I want to sip whiskey in the hat shop-cum-speakeasy with the shapeshifting bouncer. I want to get a tattoo from the blind, gay tattoo artist with eldritch needles. What an utter delight.
