I'm sticking with Blood Red Roulette (though it would probably help if I didn't skip all over the place. I didn't think this through much). At one point Arrigo mentions the only place he can still see his gods is if he goes to Caesar's Palace like this pic.
IN this scene it's actually Luc and Arrigo's second meeting and they're getting to talk. Luc has been beaten rather badly by his father and brother after someone tells them Luc was in the alley behind the bar they work in with Arrigo. Arrigo is offering to help Luc find a job and get away from his family (even though he barely knows him at this point)
“Karma again? What were you in a past life? A serial killer?” Luc’s wide grin took the sting out of his words, but Arrigo flinched none the less. He had killed more people over the centuries than a serial killer’s wet dream, granted most of them had been rogue supernaturals.
“It does a person good to help others,” Arrigo replied.
“Not in my world,” Luc muttered, mirroring Arrigo’s wince.
