Thala Coeur--Blackheart--is dead.
Willem Jaantzen has been waiting to hear those words for almost twenty years. But he was also hoping they'd hold more satisfaction. Because it turns out his arch enemy has died as she lived--sowing chaos and destruction--and when a mysterious package arrives on his doorstep, he realizes she's sent him one last puzzle from beyond the grave.
As Jaantzen and his crew are plunged back into a game he thought they'd left far behind, one thing becomes painfully clear: Solving Coeur's puzzle could be key to preventing the city from crumbling back into another civil war--or it could be the thing that destroys them all.
Because this secret isn't just worth killing for. It's worth coming back from the dead for.
The Bulari Saga series is part of Jessie Kwak's Durga System universe, a fast-paced series of gangster sci-fi stories set in a far-future world where humans may have left their home planet to populate the stars, but they haven't managed to leave behind their vices. And that's very good for business.
