And now he lives for one purpose alone An exceptionally skilled swordsman, young Tal Hawkins was the only survivor of the massacre of his village — rescued, recruited, and trained by the mysterious order of magicians and spies, the Conclave of Shadows. Now one of the secret society's most valuable agents, he gains entrance into the court of Duke Olasko, the bloodthirsty and powerful despot whose armies put Tal's village to the sword, by posing as a nobleman from the distant Kingdom of the Isles.
But the enemy is cunning and well protected — in league with the foul necromancer Leso Varen, dark master of death-magic — and to gain the Duke's trust and confidence, Tal Hawkins must first sell his soul.

And so he dispatches his most trusted agent, Squire James-formerly the thief known as Jimmy the Hand-to discover the source of the deadly epidemic. James's hunt will lead him to the dank depths of Krondor-through subterranean tunnel and sewer system to a terrible war that is raging in secret far beneath the streets.
For here rival criminal gangs are locked in a death struggle for control of a city's vice-dangerous gangsters who go by the name "Mockers"and others in the thrall of a mysterious being known as "The Crawler.

It is from this miraculous stone that all magic power is believed to flow. And if the Tear becomes the mage's trinket, the future will hold naught but terror, death, and unending night. For Squire James, Lieutenant William, and the able magician Jazhara, the race is on to rescue the remarkable artifact from the bloodthirsty, unpredictable Bear and his despicable master who would use it to bring catastrophe down upon the world.
