Murder in LaMutBook - 2007
A continuation of the story that began with Honored Enemy finds mercenaries Kurine, Kethol, and Pirojil on much-welcomed escort duty after twenty years of fighting the Tsurani, an assignment that proves more complicated than expected. Original. 40,000 first printing.
It should have been so simple . . .
Durine, Kethol, and Pirojil are three mercenaries who have spent twenty years fighting other people's battles, defeating the Tsurani and the Bugs and the goblins. Yet now it seems there are no more enemies to vanquish, leaving them with a few months of welcomed garrison duty as the Riftwar rages on in the west.
When the trio is ordered to accompany a lady and her husband safely to the city of LaMut, it looks like an easy—even cushy—assignment. But in Midkemia, nothing is that straightforward, and the men find themselves trapped by a vicious winter storm in a castle with scheming lords and ladies, an unsolved murder, and nothing less than the political future of Midkemia at stake. . . .

From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
The heavy action was supposedly at Crydee these days which meant that the one place they could be sure the three of them were not going was Crydee. Come spring, the privateer Melanie was due in Ylith, and its captain could be counted on for a swift conveyance away for sure, and likely not to murder them in their sleep. That would be bad for business.
But away where?
That wasnt Durines worry. Kethol would surely be able to find the three of them somebody who needed men who knew which part of the sword you used to cut with and which part you used to butter your bread, and Pirojil would be able to negotiate a price at least half again what the employer was ready to pay. All Durine would have to do was kill people.
That was fine with him.
Durine, Kethol and Pirojil are three mercenaries who have spent twenty years fighting other peoples battles: against the Tsurani and the Bugs and the goblins, and now it seems theyve run out of Tsurani, Bugs and goblins to kill. The prospect of a few months of garrison duty offers a welcome respite; but then they are given an assignment that seems, on the surface, like cushy work to protect a lady and her husband and deliver them safely to the city of LaMut.
