Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

The first wedding she attended was traditional Mruuna. She watched behind expressionless eyes as the happy red-clad couple stepped to the drums, and was disappointed by how little the blood showed on the bride's dress when her throat was slit, later, in the private room that the couple was lured into. She was still in training then, tailing a senior assassin, and observing technique. They mingled with the guests afterwards - it was a very, very large wedding, and a few more guests would not be questioned. No one wondered where the bride and groom had gone, and Jakal's job had been to blend in and practice being invisible.

The girl noticed her anyway. "It was so beautiful," the stranger sighed, smiling at Jakal. "I've never been to a Mruuna wedding, have you?"
