Professional Integrity (A Riyria Short Story), by Michael J. Sullivan (author), Tim Gerard Reynolds (narrator)

Audible Studios, June 2015

Hadrian and Royce have been operating a very successful thieves-for-hire business for several years, but this latest proposition is truly unusual. A young heiress wants them to kidnap her, to attract the interest of a most desirable potential suitor. She won't even get to meet him if they don't, because her father locks her in a steel box whenever he visits.

Something is not what it seems here. Her story does not really make sense, and yet she seems completely sincere. What's really going on? Is someone setting Royce and Hadrian up, or attempting to use them as tools in some larger scheme?

Royce is determined to get to the bottom of it. No one uses him as a tool; his professional integrity is at stake. Can this girl really be as innocent as she seems? If she is, what's really going on?

When they visit her home, they find an incredible tale--literally incredible. Royce doesn't believe it.

What they uncover instead is even stranger.

Every one of the few Riyria stories I've read or listened to has been both interesting, and a lot of fun. This one is no different. Recommended.

I received this audiobook for free from Audible, and I'm reviewing it voluntarily.
