GRADING NOTES - A little wear to top and bottom edge of front cover. Light crease to spine. A little light wear to front and back cover
ISSUE NOTES - It hasn't been a good morning for Thraxas. A vindictive judge has just fined him almost every guran he has, and his tow old enemies have threatened his life. To cap it all, the rainy season has started and it's wetter than a mermaid's blanket in the magical city of Turai
What Thraxas desperately needs is a winner in the big chariot race. And a job. Out of the blue, his old commander in the army turns up with the promise of both. The racing tip sounds a bit dodgy, but the job looks like a doddle - just locate some stolen property
Trouble is, when he does, the commander is there too. Well, his corpse is. And someone is sorcerously tampering with the evidence to put Thraxas in the frame. It's time for some serious investigating in the rain...
