Konrad Savast is the Malykant: foremost and most secret servant of the God of Death. His job? To track down the foulest of murderers and bring them to The Malykt's Justice. No mercy. No quarter.

Konrad is called to the death scene of a simple baker, and he can’t understand why. According to appearances, Pietr Orlov’s death was a natural one. Except there’s one problem: there’s no sign of his ghost. When two more bodies turn up with missing souls, Konrad knows he’s got a strange case on his hands.

But what could possibly connect the deaths of a baker, a manservant and a rich merchant’s wife? With the city police busy with the theft of a great diamond, Konrad must rely on the help of his one true friend to solve the case.

But when he begins to see links between the three murders and the theft of the diamond, he realises this case is more serious than he thought. With time running out, he must find the perpetrator and exact his vengeance - before a still worse crime is committed.

Pleasantly Surprised. After the first chapter or so, I didn't want to stop reading. The two principal characters, Konrad and Irinanda, are exceptionally charming. Konrad is complex, a good guy who has to do bad things. Nanda is a woman with secrets, prickly and quixotic at the same time, and an intellectual match for Konrad. The mystery is pretty good. There is not a lot of suspense around the mystery itself, and in that way the novel is similar to Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mysteries. The world is delicious. As a fantasy novel, it's quite satisfying. I will recommend this series to readers who enjoy Steven Brust's Vlad Taltos stories.

I have truly enjoyedthe two books in the Malykant series and look forward to more. The premise of the series is fresh, tge characters vibrant and the action/suspense exciting. I have also started the Draykon series and like it as well. Thanks for the welcome break from the ordinary world!
