Episode 31 – The Lies of Locke Lamora – Prologue through Chapter 2

Welcome to a new chapter in the Duke and Duchess podcast history.  Here is where we begin our second major project, a book club for The Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch.

In this episode we begin and the beginning with a little tiny Locke Lamora…if that is your real name…as a young orphan cum thief.  We see him grow and avoid getting hanged, all while leaving an impressive bodycount for such a young little rapscallion.


  • The “dark black shape,” is a girl.
  • That girl is the love interest.
  • The love interest will be described as having “raven” colored hair, or hair that is “dark as ink” at some point.
  • The love interest will also be a con artist.
  • The Berangias Twins will be a part of Locke’s con.
  • The heist will not go off without a major complication.
  • I suspect that the complication will relate to the love interest.  Think, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels…
  • Locke Lamora is not his real name.
