I really, really enjoyed this story of a pair of thieves who take on a job that lands them in hot water. They're set up as being the murderers of a king in a kingdom and they have to work out a way of getting away from the death penalty. Meanwhile they get caught up in a more complicated plot for the future of the area. I loved the two main characters, Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, they're so much fun to read about, they banter and behave like two people who have been working together for so long that they can almost predict what the other will do. I really want to read more about these characters. There were moments when I had to re-read to find who was where and doing what but overall things flowed well and I was very much sucked into the story, ploughing through it quite quickly. I would recommend it.
