This is book 1 of the "Vlad Taltos" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
First-written of the Vlad Taltos books. Lots is in place—Aliera, Morrolan, Sethra, Kiera, Cawti. And Loiosh of course.
In this one, he's hired to kill a former Jhereg council member who stole the treasury. And who turns out to be a three-way mixed breed Dragaeran who has been plotting for centuries to rub the faces of the Dzur, Jhereg, and Dragons in the muck. And who has taken refuge with Morrolan. All things considered, this looks pretty tough.
