Publisher's Summary

Granted, walking around with two jhereg on your shoulders is not the best disguise for an ex-assassin wanted all over the Empire. But a young boy saved his life and then needs help, Vlad Taltos pays his debt--even if it means uncovering a financial scandal big enough to bring down the House of the Orca and the entire Empire.

Two great narrators for the price of one

As this book switches perspectives between two characters, the decision to split the performance between Mr. Clark and Mrs. Masters was great. With Bernard's well established Vlad laying the foundation, Mrs. Masters 'Keira the Thief' takes off.

A new narrator?

Another great book in the series ... though the storyline involves banking and finances. I'd prefer that Vlad would "get out of the forest" and get back to his street mystery solving.

I was nervous as a new narrator starts out this book. She does a great job, but I'd prefer to stay with Clark the entire book.
