A damsel in a dress was Garrett's weakness, especially when she had equipment in all the right places. Still, Garrett wasn't sure it was worth his life to take on Maggie Jenn, the ex-king's ex-mistress, as his client. Not in a kingdom where the biggest con artists weren't human, magic could beat any weapon, and the local killers were built like tanks. It seemed like a simple missing person's case: a vanished teenage daughter, a distraught mother trying to track her down. But when a guy as well-connected as the Rainmaker was gunning to see Garrett permanently removed from the case, he knew he'd have to call in some big favors just to keep his head on his shoulders, let alone to find a kid who probably didn't want to be found.
