Lila Randolph enjoys fast motorcycles, expensive wine, the occasional cigar, and her day job as a highborn militia chief. She also likes tackling extralegal cases at night. As side jobs go, Lila can’t complain. She’ll do whatever it takes to keep Saxony safe.
Tristan DeLauncey grew up as a slave. Raised with the abusive Holguin family, he hates the highborn and everything they stand for. Regardless, he’ll set aside his feelings and partner with Lila if it helps protect the poor—even if it means using Lila as a distraction for an investigation of his own.
A distraction that allows their newest quarry to discover her extracurricular activities in a government server—an act that could earn her a trial and a hangman’s noose.
Can Lila move past Tristan’s betrayal so they can identify the hacker and save Saxony together?
Or will the pair kill each other first?
