Stories of death—deliberate, precautionary, or just incidental: this collection of stories about murderers, executioners and assassins is (wait for it. . .) to die for. The breadth of concepts is impressive, from Tanya Huff's brother-and-sister assassins, to Jim Hines' Romanian lesbian witch, to John Marco's phantasmal ninja. These are only three of a dozen stories, linked only by death.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Assassins--are they born or made? Do they choose this role out of necessity, because someone or something forces them to, or because they just enjoy killing? And what does an assassin do when he or she isn't out killing people?

These are just a few of the questions you'll find answered in this all-original collection of tales by some of fantasy's finest. From Vree, the well-known assassin from Tanya Huff's Quarters a woman whose father's vengeful spirit forced her down dark magic's bloody an assassin seeking to escape his Master's death the origins of the legendary nin-sha and the ritual of the hundredth are spellbinding stories of murder and mayhem, of shadowy figures who strike form night's concealment or find their way past all safeguards to reach their unsuspecting victims.
