Lea is a clipper, one of nine families who are sanctioned by the city to murder for hire. Dating the son of the Da Vias, a rival family, is just a fun game until her family is brutally murdered. Enacting her revenge on the Da Vias is the only way Lea knows to find peace but she can’t do it alone. Seeking out a lost Uncle, Lea finds it's his untrained apprentice who is the most likely to serve her needs. But training him while escaping those hunting her is much more difficult than Lea anticipates making it necessary to travel to the brink of death in order to complete her mission.
