This is an alternate cover edition - ISBN13: 9780553588941The Thorn of Camorr is said to be an unbeatable swordsman, a master thief, a ghost that walks through walls. Half the city believes him to be a legendary champion of the poor. The other half believe him to be a foolish myth. Nobody has it quite right.Slightly built, unlucky in love, and barely competent with a sword, Locke Lamora is, much to his annoyance, the fabled Thorn. He certainly didn't invite the rumors that swirl around his exploits, which are actually confidence games of the most intricate sort. And while Locke does indeed steal from the rich (who else, pray tell, would be worth stealing from?), the poor never see a penny of it. All of Locke's gains are strictly for himself and his tight-knit band of thieves, the Gentlemen Bastards.Locke and company are con artists in an age where con artistry, as we understand it, is a new and unknown style of crime. The less attention anyone pays to them, the better! But a deadly mystery has begun to haunt the ancient city of Camorr, and a clandestine war is threatening to tear the city's underworld, the only home the Gentlemen Bastards have ever known, to bloody shreds. Caught up in a murderous game, Locke and his friends will find both their loyalty and their ingenuity tested to the breaking point as they struggle to stay alive...

4.0 The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
He is known as The Thorn of Camorr, who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. The Thorn is a master swordsman, a great romancer of women, and a ghost who walks through walls. The Thorn is a commoner’s tale...Locke Lamora is nothing more than a Gentleman Bastard, who has mastered the art of t...

5.0 The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch, narrated by Michael Page
This book was fantastic! I listened to the audio version narrated by Michael Page. The Lies of Locke Lamora had many characters and Mr. Page voiced them all believably and with distinction. Being the first fantasy book I've read since the last entry in the Song of Ice and Fire series, it has re-...

5.0 Exceptional
“He’s got larceny in his heart, sure as the sea’s full of piss.” Locke Lamora has larceny in heart, profanity on his tongue, mischief in his soul and loyalty in spades. And he and his band of Gentleman Bastards slayed me from beginning to end. Under the umbrella of speculative fiction, I tend to...

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch **Disclaimer: I read this book several months ago, and no, I didn't reread it before writing this review, so the accuracy of my recollections are questionable. However, I want to jot down my feelings about the first book before starting the second. Let's s...
