Mayhem erupts in Ravens Bluff—and it’s up to one rogue to stop it—in this first of four standalone novels, each set in a mighty city of FaerûnJack Ravenwild is a charming ne’er-do-well with as much ambition as he has skill. But for the first time ever, his designs have far exceeded his talents—plunging him into a dangerous and complex web of intrigue that may put an end to his days of skulduggery and adventure. When a beautiful woman named Alana commissions Jack to find a lost book, he readily accepts, intent on winning her heart. But in his quest to retrieve the book, Jack uncovers Alana’s true intentions—and becomes entrapped in other dangerous pursuits. Suddenly, Jack finds himself caught in the middle of a search for lost dwarven treasure and a conspiracy to seize the reins of power through the nobility’s Game of Masks. Worse yet, Jack must choose between a life of freedom and saving Ravens Bluff, a city he doesn’t even know he loves.
