The perfect killer has no friends. Only targets. For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art. And he is the city’s most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he’s grown up in the slums, and learned the hard way to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

The story was intriguing and punchy enough to keep my interest consistently piqued. However, the authors nationalistic arrogance made me want to puke and stop numerous times throughout. This could be a recommendation if these inane comments were removed.
