Synopses & Reviews
Love is dangerous and trust is priceless in the satisfying conclusion to Holly Blacks “powerful, edgy dark” fantasy series (Publishers Weekly).
Cassel Sharpe knows hes been used as an assassin, but hes trying to put all that behind him. Hes trying to be good, even though he grew up in a family of con artists and cheating comes as easily as breathing to him. Hes trying to do the right thing, even though the girl he loves is the one he should stay the farthest away from. And hes trying to convince himself that working for the Feds is smart, even though hes been raised to believe the government is the enemy.
But with a mother on the lam, the girl he loves about to take her place in the Mob, and new secrets coming to light, the line between whats right and whats wrong becomes increasingly blurred. When the Feds ask Cassel to do the one thing he said he would never do again, he needs to sort out whats a con and whats truth. In a dangerous game and with his life on the line, Cassel may have to make his biggest gamble yet—this time on love.
