Rone’s new job has him in over his head. Too bad he can’t swim.
Rone’s a small-time thief and dock whore whose only ambition is to ask Robin, an intersex elf who stars in a peepshow, out for drinks. But when Rone agrees to run messages for a shipping magnate, suddenly Farthalan Port’s rival factions—vampire, elf, and human—become interested in his work. And they all want a cut.
Everyone thinks Rone knows a lot more than he does, but he has no idea what’s in the messages he’s carrying—he can’t read. All he can fish up are rumors of a fake princess, who might be out to defraud the royal family, or who might have been planted by the king himself to dupe a visiting prince. Either way, Rone suspects he’s being set up to take the blame. And being pursued by a vampire called Shark, a couple of elf thugs, and an undercover city guard doesn’t help his odds of coming out alive.
If he can figure out what’s really going on, he might be able to buy his way out of the whole mess. If he can’t, he and Robin are both sunk.
