In this stunning debut, author Scott Lynch delivers the wonderfully thrilling tale of an audacious criminal and his band of confidence tricksters. Set in a fantastic city pulsing with the lives of decadent nobles and daring thieves, here is a story of adventure, loyalty, and survival that is one part Robin Hood, one part Ocean's Eleven, and entirely enthralling....An orphan's life is harsh--and often short--in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains--a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans--a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards. Under his tutelage, Locke grows to lead the Bastards, delightedly pulling off one outrageous confidence game after another. Soon he is infamous as the Thorn of Camorr, and no wealthy noble is safe from his sting.Passing themselves off as petty thieves, the brilliant Locke and his tightly knit band of light-fingered brothers have fooled even the criminal underworld's most feared ruler, Capa Barsavi. But there is someone in the shadows more powerful--and more ambitious--than Locke has yet imagined.Known as the Gray King, he is slowly killing Capa Barsavi's most trusted men--and using Locke as a pawn in his plot to take control of Camorr's underworld. With a bloody coup under way threatening to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the Gray King at his own brutal game--or die trying....From the Hardcover edition.

This is Scott Lynch's debut novel, the first in the Gentlemen Bastards Series.

A band of young theives and con-artists, the Gentlemen Bastards, as they call themselves, steal from the rich and the nobility and in the city of Camorr. Trained, from childhood, in the various skills necessary for their trade, they enjoy their work - and hold more stolen gold than they know what to do with.

But someone else stalks the night, leaving a trail of blood. The mysterious "Grey King" threatens to upset the established order in the underworld of Camorr - the uneasy Secret Peace, maintained by the crime lord Barsavi.

The Bastards soon find themselves pulled into the heart of the conflict.

A real page turner, LIES has it all - cocky theives, elaborate cons, humor , and a twisted plot - all set in a beautifully built world with its own unique history.

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.
