Publisher's Summary

In which Vlad Taltos confronts the Left Hand of the Jhereg…and discovers the game has more players than he thought...
Vlad Taltos, short-statured, short-lived human in an Empire of tall, long-lived Dragaerans, has always had to keep his wits about him. Long ago, he made a place for himself as a captain of the Jhereg, the noble house that runs the rackets in the great imperial city of Adrilankha. But love, revolution, betrayal, and revenge ensued, and for years now Vlad has been a man on the run, struggling to stay a step ahead of the Jhereg who would kill him without hesitation.
Now Vlad's back in Adrilankha. The rackets he used to run are now under the control of the mysterious "Left Hand of the Jhereg" - a secretive cabal of women who report to no man. His ex-wife needs his help. His old enemies aren't sure whether they want to kill him, or talk to him and then kill him. A goddess may be playing tricks with his memory. And the Great Weapon he's carrying seems to have plans of its own….
Picking up directly where Issola left off, Dzur gives us Vlad Taltos at his best - swashbuckling storytelling with a wry and gritty edge.

After a long time away from being the fantastic schemer and irascible rogue we all know and love, Vlad is back in town!

love these books but..

okay I love the taltos books, but this one actually took me a week to push through most I have done in 2-3 days. just his ramblings about food every chapter or 2 just make it hard. once or twice, cool that's fine but sooo often come on. we get it valabars is amazing and perfect.
