    Summary

    “So, yes.” Kaz said. “It is a good idea to collect in the Barrel. Merchers don’t care about some puerile charity project, but the Barrel is built of survivors. It has a very long memory. Say some jumped-up kid pinches some kruge from them. When he comes back to his boss, who lost his girl and his Da and his best friend in the Queen’s Lady, and presents him with money that’s meant to be funding a memorial for them? Them, the people who never get a scrap of respect, who were left to die in the streets? That kid will be lucky if he escapes with both of his hands.”

    Summary

    "Kaz opened the door, and the sight of her was almost enough to make him forget everything — the pain, the guilt, the turmoil of emotion this day had been. A string of tension snapped, releasing him. She was at the window, dark hair loose to the wind, casually perched on it just like she used to, before everything. The crows she’d taken the time to feed fretted around her, recognizing her careful fingers. A younger one had nestled in her lap, and gently, she petted its ruffled feathers.

    'Pretty' was nowhere near enough. She was every beautiful thing in the world.

    Kaz found the breath he’d lost, and felt a tired smile bloom on his lips."

    ------

    Six months after the events of Crooked Kingdom, Kaz Brekker begins to heal. It starts with a long-owed apology to a friend, and the return of the Wraith in Ketterdam.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker is the self-appointed King of the Barrel, and it’s good to be King. With his ill-gotten gains from the Van Eck job he’s doubled the size of the Crow Club, and his exclusive new gambling parlor in The Lid is two weeks from opening. But when a series of deadly fires strike in the heart of The Lid’s entertainment district, essentially wiping out half his competitors, Kaz finds himself implicated. Now he has the Stadwatch and half the gangs in Ketterdam after him. Can Kaz prove his innocence and find the culprit before his latest venture goes up in smoke?
