From the Publisher:
When an engineer is sentenced to death for a petty transgression of guild law, he flees the city, leaving behind his wife and daughter. Forced into exile, he seeks a terrible vengeance -- one that will leave a trail of death and destruction in its wake. But he will not be able to achieve this by himself. He must draw up his plans using the blood of others...

In a compelling tale of intrigue and injustice, K. J. Parker's embittered hero takes up arms against his enemies, using the only weapons he has left to him: his ingenuity and his passion -- his devices and desires.

"A richly textured and emotionally complex fantasy...Highly recommended."
--- Library Journal (Starred Review)

"When so many fantasy sagas are tired, warmed-over affairs, a writer like K.J. Parker is more of a hurricane than a breath of fresh air."
--- Dreamwatch
Sentenced to death for a minor infraction of guild laws, engineer Ziani Vaatzes flees Mezentia to seek refuge in enemy Eremia, where to preserve his safety, he offers to teach engineering techniques to the Eremians, all the while plotting a terrible revenge on his accusers.
Annotation:
