Description: Antimo works as an assasin for his master. His master sends him to assasin a foreign leader in another kingdom. As Antimo is able to pass through the gates and only has a few days to accomplish this, there's a turn of events in which prevents Antimo to complete his task given.

Summary: There really wasn’t any easy way into the walled city of Ferrara, or, now that it was too late, even a chance to get out of the queue to enter the Porta di Leoni. All that young Antimo Bartelozzi could do was be his normal assassin self – in other words, try to be invisible, or at least un-noticed. It didn’t help that eight out of every ten people heading through the crenellated city gate were female, and the gate-guards were searching and questioning all the males. Antimo could do a good job of passing for a woman. It did cause complications when the soldiers tried to get his skirts up and rape him, though. That was too common a problem here in the fractured and squabbling city-states of Italy to make that disguise worthwhile, in general. Antimo’s task was to kill the ruler of this city. . Of the various tasks his master had sent him to do, it looked likely to be the hardest yet. And he had a bare five weeks to return. Part of the time he had been given was lost to travel and preparation. He had four weeks and five days, now. In the end, the Duke takes on Antimo in to be a spy for his kingdom.

Excerpt: So was Antimo, although, thinking about it, he should not have been. The old scribe he’d been apprenticed to after his father’s death had had his round of villages and small towns, travelling far, by the standards of the Italian peasantry. Antimo had loved the travel, the seeing new places. The scribe could write, number, and was privy to all sorts of contracts and agreements. He would not have been sitting in at the councils of the rich and powerful – they had scribes of their own, or could read and write themselves, or used their priests.
