Saint City Sinners is Lilith Saintcrow’s fourth Dante Valentine novel following the adventures of Dante, a necromance bounty hunter turned to a demon hybrid by her demon lover Japhrimel. Contracted by Lucifer to hunt down rebel demons escaped from Hell, Dante certainly has her work cut out for her but of late both Dante and this series seem to be faltering slightly.
Saint City Sinners is an improvement on The Devil’s Right Hand because although Dante starts out obsessing over her relationship with Japh she soon has other things to occupy her mind when her best friend Gabe, who is in a lot of trouble, calls her back to Saint City. Okay, so Dante’s relationship problems are replaced by her obsessing over her feelings of guilt for letting down Gabe instead, but I’ll take that over unresolved relationship angst any day!
Saint City has always been Dante Valentine's home. It's where she grew up, it's where her dead are buried, and it's where she learned to hunt. Now, one call from an old friend will bring her back to investigate a murder too close to home for anyone's comfort. But the one person she trusted has just betrayed her. Sometimes revenge is best served demon-hot...

Saint City Sinners gets off to a slow start and it isn’t until Dante returns to Saint City that story begins to pick up any pace. Dante agrees to hunt down a killer in Saint City for Gabe and this story then directs the plot. The demon rebellion is still going on in the background but it easy to forget about that as murdered friends, drugs dealers, mob hit men and corrupt cops all come into play.
