Summary
"FitzChivalry--royal bastard and former king's assassin--has left his life of court intrigue at Buckkeep far behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married and leading the quiet life of a country squire with his beloved Molly. The only fly in the ointment is the disappearance of his beloved childhood friend, the Fool, with whom he once shared so much. But for a former royal assassin, a quiet life is hard to maintain when old allegiances keep trying to pull him back, and new enemies come calling..."--

Summary
Former king's assassin FitzChivalry Farseer, highborn but illegitimate, takes center stage in this series opener. Retired from active service and married to the love of his life, Fitz -- living under the alias "Tom Badgerlock" -- anticipates a quiet life as caretaker of the Crown's bucolic Withywoods estate. Alas, when a group of marauders interrupt the manor's Winterfest, Fitz must once again pick up his weapons and battle the villains. Although Fool's Assassin is the 1st volume of a stand-alone series, fans of Robin Hobb's previous Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies will enjoy reuniting with familiar characters and returning to this well-developed world. -- Description by Gillian Speace
