When his recently widowed uncle recalled him to America to become an assassin like his half-Belgian, half-Japanese cousins and take over the family business, Charles Adamant leaves Belgium to start a new life as a college student by day and an assassin by night. But how can the inexperienced cousin (who resembles Jack Adamant so closely that people mistake them for brothers) become an assassin when he cannot even handle a pistol? Training under the tutelage of his cousins is harder than he thought, but their mutual love for poker makes it marginally more enjoyable. His uncle hopes that Charles's arrival would spark the flame in Jack's heart that was extinguished upon the untimely death of his wife. And upon failing on his very first assignment, not only does Charles risk getting shipped back to his parents, but also losing the whole family's clientele, and by extension, the family's business. Will he get another chance for redemption? Or did his uncle make a huge mistake by recruiting him? Jack of Spades is the first volume of the four-novel work The Spades Quartet.
