Vengeance, Then is the twenty-eighth chapter of Best Served Cold.
Chapter Summary Edit
Outside Grand Duke Orso's audience chamber waits Shenkt, the world's most feared assassin, not that anyone knows it. When he is eventually ushered inside and ordered to kneel before the Grand Duke, he calmly announces “I do not kneel.” While his chamberlain bristles, Orso brushes it off as unimportant. Orso is furious at the death of his son Ario in Sipani, and hires Shenkt, along with many other assassins, to kill Monza and all her crew. When Shenkt announces his massive fee, the Grand Duke doesn't balk. General Ganmark goes on to explain that since Orso's failed attempt to kill Monza, she has been wreaking revenge across Styria, having killed Gobba, Mauthis and now Ario.
