Publisher's Synopsis

"Dead gods, dread magic, and a lead that feels like a breath of fresh air. Great fun" - Peter Newman, author of The Vagrant

To Catch An Assassin Use An Assassin

Girton Club-Foot, apprentice to the land's best assassin, still has much to learn about the art of taking lives. But his latest mission tasks Girton and his master with a far more difficult challenge: to save a life. Someone, or many someones, is trying to kill the heir to the throne, and it is up to Girton and his master to uncover the traitor and prevent the prince's murder. In a kingdom on the brink of civil war and a castle thick with lies Girton finds friends he never expected, responsibilities he never wanted, and a conspiracy that could destroy an entire land.

"Compellingly complex political intrigue and steel-sparking action sequences leavened by warm humour and genuine emotional depth." - Chris Brookmyre, author of the Jack Parlabane novels
