I found this second chapter in the Gentlemen Bastard sequence to be a really great read. Possibly because of the high expectations I had for this novel after 'Lies of Locke Lamora' I found it to be quite different from what I had envisioned. The Gentlemen Bastards have been reduced to Jean and Locke (and the elusive Sabetha) whose relationship seems to have cooled somewhat, and the book focusses on this and the levels of trust between them. However, all the essentials are still here - a grand complicated scheme to amass riches and a horde of people holding grudges against them are out for their blood. I did particularly enjoy the ending, which I found redeemed certain parts of the book. It's not at all what they (or the reader) expects - but that's the fun of it. This installment leaves you hanging for the next!
