    He's back! The long-awaited return of the most exciting new commercial fantasy writer of the 21st century.... After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins, the Bonds Magi. It is a fallout that will pit both men against Locke's own long lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again.

    When's the next one

    I read this as the last of the tales of Locke Lamora and it answers many of the questions from the rest of the series
