Here’s the story:
I just read the greatest book!
This guy Phyrne Fisher ends up in the middle of a Crooked conspiracy. Turns out her ancestors were pirates, and she might be the key to finding the Black Bones. It’s a mythic artifact that disappeared centuries ago, and now a shadowy group of Policemen are looking for it. No one knows what uncovering it might do, but these guys are willing to Push the Limits for it.
I won’t say anything else. But believe me, if you like Ice(y) stories with Saints and Killers, you have to read this one.
