A high-ranking Jhereg boss has left with most of the Jhereg funds, and Vlad Taltos has to kill him and bring the money back. The problem is, it turns out that there’s more to it than just a Jhereg boss on the run, and bringing him down might be very difficult for Vlad.
There’s not really much to say, it’s an excellent book like the others in the series, it has a plot with some nice twists and turns, the whole cast of Vlad and his friends turn up, and making it that at least Morrolan couldn’t help Vlad to solve this problem was a neat thing to do. Like all the other books in the series it’s very tightly written, a fast and enjoyable read. Like always it’s fascinating to see how neatly all the book work together, considering the fact they are written out of order.
