It’s implied here, but I feel like I should point out that there was a time when Hunter Black was in the argument for most highly sought hired killer in the Known World. He had MONEY. Even now, Hunter’s not afraid to take on the occasional hit to supplement is pocket money, recall the introduction of The Fishwife in Book Two, although we’re not going to bother showing those in the story. Hunter’s far more deadly now, wielding the Revenger, than he ever was back in the day. It would gloriously violent, but ultimately boring.
