Publisher Comments:

Love is dangerous and trust is priceless in Holly Black’s “powerful, edgy dark” fantasy series (Publishers Weekly).

Cassel Sharpe knows he’s been used as an assassin, but he’s trying to put all that behind him. He’s trying to be good, even though he grew up in a family of con artists and cheating comes as easily as breathing to him. He’s trying to do the right thing, even though the girl he loves is inextricably connected with crime. And he’s trying to convince himself that working for the Feds is smart, even though he’s 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 what’s right and what’s 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 what’s a con and what’s 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.

This is my favorite (so far!) of the Curse Workers books. The cast of characters is smaller than in the first book (um, partly through attrition) and there's time to focus on Cassel as he faces pressure from all sides yet manages to take action in a big way and stay himself. There were enough surprises from other characters to keep the book feeling fresh, and the writing is solid with some humor in it. If you've read the first two, this one won't disappoint you. If you haven't, start with White Cat and know the best is yet to come.
