Jesse James Davidson has extraordinary fighting skills in the job he has chosen to do. Sometimes people make deals with a demon until they want to exchange for their souls and later decide the cost is too high. Jesse bets his soul that he can defeat the demon in a fight and so far he has won every bout. He got into the guardian profession when he risked his soul to rescue his younger brother. His latest satisfied customer is the President of the United States. He gets a call from a potential client baseball giant Nelson Kidd who made a deal with a demon to restore his ability to be a champion baseball player. He took his team to the World Champions but now wants out of the deal. Jesse charges him a huge fee because he earns it to pay his medical bills from the fight with the demon. Two other champions Miguel and Guy have fallen off the radar and it is assumed they died. Both called the same number before they vanished and both tried but failed to log on to the guardian database. It looks like something is killing the guardians but Jesse has no time to investigate because he has a demon to fight. He is also staying away from Axel the demon who wants his soul and who apparently is stalking him. K.A. Stewart is a welcome addition to the urban fantasy writers with a strong opening entry. Told in the first person by the laconic hero in a sardonic witty voice, readers get to know Jesse up front and in person. Flawed and courageous, Jesse risks eternity to help those who cut demonic deals although by doing so he shortens his lifespan because one day he will lose a fight. A Devil in the Details is a dynamic debut. Harriet Klausner

I bought this because one off the reviews compared it to Butcher's Harry Dresden series. It proved to be a good comparison. Definitely worth looking at if you enjoyed the Dresden series so far.

I found the characters to be alive and tangible. Loved the inner monologues within the storyline. Finished this morning and went looking for more either in the series or from the author. Imagery was great adn the suspense was more than I was expecting.

A novel story line that's kept alive fairly well. Not a bad read at all; I will be buying the other books in the series and follow along.

Well written and of a good reading pace. A Devil in the Details delights, and brings laughter at unexpected moments - with tenderness nestled carefully among the action. Many souls will identify with the witty Jesse James - and assuredly may want to be him if they could. I expect the sequel will be even better a read. Hats off to K.A. Stewart for presenting us with a pleasant debut!

this story is amazing,jesse's character is realistic,straight forward and is pretty hilarious with the vanity t-shirts and inner monolouges.but the author hits it on the nail,the job is tough and fatal,yet jesse and many others do it anyway to try and save as many people as they can before they die,they all have skills that in the normal world people would just call hobbies but it helps them in the long run,that and its set in the modern world so it hits close to home.and the hagakure quotes just priceless.the plot,characters and pace all make this book a best buy,and the reference to the site for buying the swords was a bonus.buy it you wont regret it.

I am a sucker for witty characters. Jessie James Dawson did not let me down for a second! His sarcasm & humor had me loving him through the whole book. From the T-shirts he wore to his sayings like, ""Butt-crack-of-dawn o'clock," his dialog added great humor to the seriousness of his job. No, not the side job at the goth store, where he is affectionately called "Old Dude" at 30. The one where he frees to souls of those who have made deals with demons. Jessie is a champion Demon slayer. The job does not come without it setbacks (broken bones, scars, large hospital bills.... to name a few), but Jessie is well trained and takes his job seriously. Loving husband & father that he is, and knowing his task could take his own life, he is selfless in helping these people get out of their contracts because 'someone has to do it'. I enjoyed this from beginning to end and am beyond thrilled to learn it is a series. I look forward to more!
