What Happens in the Worldwound Stays in the Worldwound

Oceans 666—that's the best short description for Robin Laws's The Worldwound Gambit I've heard yet. Gambit is the fourth book in our Pathfinder Tales line and will be coming out in May, just in time to tuck it away in a bag and head to the beach. In this novel, preternaturally handsome and coolly charismatic swindler Gad decides to assemble a team of thieves, cutthroats, and con men to take the fight into the magic-twisted hellscape known as the Worldwound, intent on striking directly at the fiendish leader responsible for a series of raids into the surrounding territory—the demon Yath, the Shimmering Putrescence. Can Gad hold his team together long enough to pull off the ultimate con, or will trouble from within his own organization lead to an untimely end for them all? You won't be able to find out for a few weeks, but until then you'll have plenty of time to gaze on this great piece by Daren Bader.
I'm enjoying the Worldwound Gambit so far. I'm still at the beginning and already learning a lot about Mendev. The main reason I read the Pathfinder Fiction novels is for DM research (yes, the Pathfinder Setting books are great, but the way the novels are painting certain parts of Golarion for the reader, through a character's eyes, is just great).
