In this stunning debut, author Scott Lynch delivers the wonderfully thrilling tale of an audacious criminal and his band of confidence tricksters. Set in a fantastic city pulsing with the lives of decadent nobles and daring thieves, here is a story of adventure, loyalty, and survival that is one part Robin Hood, one part Ocean's Eleven, and entirely enthralling.
Orphan Locke Lamora, born on an alien world and raised by a gang of con-artists and thieves, has achieved a kind of notoriety as the leader of a rogue gang known as the Gentlemen Bastards. When his fame catches the eye of an underworld villain, however, Locke finds himself--and his friends--in trouble. This sure-footed debut finds an appealing middle ground between alien fantasy, thriller, and good old-fashioned caper.
