When a master thief is the only option, the world has gone terribly awry...
Ardor Benn is no ordinary thief. Rakish, ambitious, and master of wildly complex heists, he styles himself a Ruse Artist Extraordinaire.
When he’s hired for his most daring ruse yet, Ardor knows he’ll need more than quick wit and sleight of hand. Assembling a team of forgers, disguisers, schemers, and thieves, he sets out to steal from the most powerful king the realm has ever known.
But it soon becomes clear there’s more at stake than fame and glory – Ard and his team might just be the last hope for human civilization.
