Abstract:

A latest installment in the popular series that includes Red Seas Under Red Skies finds con man Locke Lamora's latest scrapes with fellow Gentleman Bastard Jean Tannen giving way to an increasingly audacious resolve to have an incredibly good time while robbing the world blind. With what should have been the greatest heist of their career gone spectacularly sour, Locke and his trusted partner, Jean, have barely escaped with their lives.

With what should have been the greatest heist of their career gone spectacularly sour, Locke and his trusted partner, Jean, have barely escaped. Now Locke is slowly succumbing to a deadly poison that no alchemist or physiker can cure. Magi political elections are imminent, and the factions are in need of a pawn. If Locke agrees to play the role, sorcery will be used to purge the venom from his body-- though the process will be so excruciating he may well wish for death. Sabetha, a woman from Locke's past reappears, and Locke must choose whether to fight Sabetha or woo her-- and it is a decision on which both their lives may depend.
