Bitter Bite has an ice magic flare to it and lots of expensive bling if you care about that sort of thing.
The story starts and ends in a cemetery. Gin Blanco has her suspicions about Finn's mother being alive. And she was right. Gin discovers Deirdre Shaw's coffin is empty. When two dwarves interfere with Gin's business, they end up dead. So Gin buries them in the empty grave she just dug up. Good riddance.
Anyhow, Bitter Bite was a hoot, even though the real action doesn't start until page 283. Gin teams up with her sister Bria to stop a bank heist. The bad guys, Deirdre and Santos, are holding Finn hostage to get inside the First Trusts bank vault. The very bank in which Finn works! Deirdre leads Finn to believe she cares for him against Gin's better judgment- but Deirdre is only using Finn as her tool, the same way she used Fletcher.
