Publisher's Summary

Readers know Luff Imbry from many of Matthew Hughes’ earlier novels. For the first time, Imbry is placed front and center in a novel dedicated exclusively to him.
Luff Imbry is an insidiously clever confidence man who always maintains the upper hand in his criminal dealings. But when an unknown business rival gets the drop on him and plumps him down on Fulda - a far-off, isolated world - Imbry learns just how exceptional he is. Unable to blend in and furious for revenge at an anonymous perpetrator, Imbry has to rely on his infamous criminal wit to survive Fulda’s crusade to extinguish the Other.

Critic Reviews

"Hughes serves up equal measures of wit, intrigue, and seat-of-the-pants action and even dabbles a little in Jungian psychology." (Booklist)
"Superlative. A droll narrative voice, dry humor, and an alternative universe that's accessible without excessive exposition" (Publishers Weekly)
"A bit Arthur Conan Doyle, a bit Jack Vance...[with] the lasting appeal of one of PG Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster books." (Seattle Times)

A Good Story but..

..this reader made me cringe. I finished the audio because it was a good story & I didn't see it in print. There were times it was almost painful to listen. I'll read the author again for sure but the narrator won't get a 2nd chance.
